Classic Interviews & Features
Maxine Brown February 1975 Interview
THERE must be a whole legion of soul folk whose musical education goes back to the mid and late Sixties for whom names like Betty Everett, Chuck Jackson, Garnet Mimms, Lou Johnson (to name just a few) hold a special magic. One name that's missing fro...

Carl Douglas February 1977 Interview
Pssst! Didja hear th' one 'bout th' Polish Kung Fu fans? With "Kung Fu Fighting", Carl Douglas scored one of the best-selling singles of all time, and won friends the world over — including an older couple in Poland. I DON'T think I'm being unj...

Ann Peebles November 1971 Interview
ALREADY being tipped as a potential giant R&B record in this country is Ann Peebles version of "Slipped, Tripped And Fell In Love". The only hindrance for the record seems to be the fact that Clarence Carter's version of the same George Jackson song ...

Ann Peebles April 1975 Interview
BEING the recording artist for a classic can have almost as many pitfalls as advantages. The history of our music is littered with names who have been associated with gems and then simply been unable to come up with a repeat performance. In most case...

Ann Peebles May 1974 Interview
ALL OF a sudden, it seems like the whole world is talking about the talents of a magnificently soulful young woman and she puts it herself, "I feel like I'm beginning to make it." Her name is Ann Peebles and after what she describes as "seven, long, ...

Voices of East Harlem October 1970 Concert Review
THE CONCERT debut of the Voices Of East Harlem at the Royal Albert Hall, despite drawing a far-from-capacity crowd, proved to be one of the most entertaining and exciting events of the soul year. The general impression has been given that the group a...

Voices of East Harlem June 1974 Interview
QUITE BY accident, I happened to witness a Voices of East Harlem concert a few weeks back and it was in the unusual surroundings of a cathedral in New York, where the Voices shared the top billing with Mandrill. I say unlikely' because it didn't seem...

The Originals December 1976 Interview
David Nathan talks to Freddie Gorman, once a single act and writer with Ric-Tic, who has been churning out hits with the Originals for 12 years now… AFTER WHAT seems like an interminable delay, The Originals seem to have finally come up...

The Originals June 1978 Interview
Until recently, the Originals had spent their career at Motown, and enjoyed great success. But, they felt it was time to move on and now the "Down To Love Town" team are happily settled with the Fantasy label. AFTER literally a career lif...

The Originals March 1972 Interview
JUDGING from your mail, the Originals are one of Motown's most under-rated and underexposed acts. They exploded more than two years ago with a million seller, "Baby I'm For Real", followed it with another golden one, "The Bells". Since then, they hav...

Bobby Caldwell April 1979 Interview
IF patience is a virtue, then TK's Bobby Caldwell is a virtuous being. Apart from the fact that he has been patiently awaiting his own breakthrough for a good eight years, the record that has attained that success — "What You Won't Do For Love" on th...

The Fuzz May 1971 Interview
YOU HAVE probably noticed a record by a group called Fuzz, which has been on the American Top 100 now for some three months or more. I must confess that when I first became aware of the record, I was expecting something in the psychesoul vein but I w...

Taka Boom August 1979 Interview
Taka spent a year and a half with Undisputed Truth and now she's capitalising on that experience with her solo career… AFTER years of helping others to the top via her vocal background support, Taka Boom has finally taken that big step forw...

The Undisputed Truth April 1972 Interview
CERTAINLY one of the most impressive of 1971's many noteworthy new talents is Motown's trio, the Undisputed Truth. Though not initially discovered by him, Norman Whitfield can be credited with the tremendous rise to fame that they have enjoyed. Th...

The UndisputedTruth November 1975 Interview
WITH the increasing use of theatrics within the sphere of our music, it is interesting to note that Motown's Undisputed Truth were just about the first group to become seriously involved in the glitter and tinsel world. In fact, they seem to concentr...
