It´s a celebration!

The legacy.

Thanks in advance.



The Ledgends - Fear Not - Commonwealth

70s SoulPosted by Martin Fri, January 29, 2010 16:18:11

As with our last addition, The Incredibles, this record was also released three times. Or I should say, the A-side of this record which is called "Gotta Let You Go" was released thrice. Firstly on the Red Ballon label in 1969 and then again on the Locket and Commonwealth labels in 1970. It is on these two 1970 issues we find the wonderful B-side "Fear Not". I haven´t found any info about the group but my guess is that they were a Chicago outfit, or at least from that area as the record is produced by a Clarence Johnson who was involved with a lot of the local windy city talent, it also carries, what I think, that certain Chicago soul sound, but I may be wrong so feel free to correct me. Enjoy!

"Fear Not"
