Like Mary Gresham and Ruby Andrews this is a quality release for soul connoisseurs. Mary Gresham may be a little less well known – but she is a southern soul duo, and her MD release includes “Use Me” with “Nobody’s Gonna Turn Me Against You” on the back side. Soul and Jazz and Funk is an independent site with news and reviews of soul music compiled by Charles Waring and Bill Buckley, two of the most experienced and respected British writers in the field. MD RECORDS is an independent British soul label whose goal is to “release good music at a good price.” The album has since gained some notoriety, so MD released it under license, but since the recording was never mastered, they apologize for the sound quality. But it sounds good! “You’re My Life” is another unreleased track, a catchy and punchy mid-tempo groove. The B side is different: JJ Boyce’s song, “I’m Sorry,” sung in the classic soul band style. Most soul fans know Bottom and Company from their work for Motown, but their new MD album was produced by Wishbone, the production company of Terry Woodford and Clayton Ivey. The A-side is his unreleased version of the song “You’re Messing Up A Good Thing” – best known for covers by Bobby Sheen, Bobby Womack and John Edwards. They’ve been around since 2017, and since then the band has released a number of classic lost soul recordings, most of which have never been released on vinyl. Ruby Andrews’ single combines the songs “It Takes Me Away” and “You’re My Life.” Both songs feature powerful vocals and a soulful groove. Ruby recorded the first album for the Zodiac label, but never found it strong enough to release. Ruby Andrews is a household name, especially for his hit “Casanova.” Contact us, we offer very favorable prices for placing your listing on our site.
