Drake & The En-Solids - Please Leave Me - Alteen

60s SoulPosted by Martin Mon, October 26, 2009 18:25:57

One of my personal favourites, this is a real stormer from 1968 and Chicago´s Alteen label. Drake & The En-Solids had a few records out on Bill Meeks´small label in the late 60s early 70s. This is to be me the finest one of them. Meeks (I believe) made his career through producing radiojingles, which makes sense since he then have all the connections with musicians and arrangers that he would need for his Alteen enterprise. Although none of the records on the label became a big hit, there are some fine recordings issued on Alteen records, Sunday´s "Ain´t Got No Problems" and The Supurbs "Only For Lovers" being two of the most popular ones nowadays. Together with this of course, the jewel in Alteen´s crown. Enjoy!

"Please Leave Me"
