Deep soul and then some!
Counterpart records was a small Cincinatti label that released mainly Rock n´ Roll and Garage records between 1966-72. Amongst these there are a few soul records tucked away as well and this must be one of the finest. Label owner and local radioman & record promoter Shad O´Shea gave this release the green light in ´66, making it one of the first releases on his newly started Counterpart company. A fine double header, as the other side is a classic 60s soul dancer which have had some plays on the northern soul scene recently, it seems that it was Le Bleau Monde´s only release on the Counterpart imprint. As for the artist some sources on the net suggest that it is in fact a group formerly known as The Nutrons from Cincinatti Ohio which had releases on labels like Federal, El-Dee and Fabar records. Hopefully someone who reads this can confirm. Enjoy!
