Eddie Hill - I Can Hear You Crying - Ge Ge

60s SoulPosted by Martin Sun, April 04, 2010 12:29:56

Thelma Gordy (Motown founder Berry Gordy´s sister) was also involved in the music business in Detroit during the 60s. Her main label was aptly named Thelma and had some great releases on it, but today we fetch our track from one of her smaller enterprises, the short-lived Ge Ge label. With only three releases on it, all in 1965, Ge Ge records disappeared before it had a chance to leave any real mark on the Motor City´s musical heritage. But, as with many others the records, these were later picked up by The U.K´s northern soul scene and played to great appreciation on the other side of the Atlantic. This is the second of the three releases on the label, a classic Detroit production through and through. Eddie Hill also recorded on other small local labels like M-S for which he cut the excellent "Nothing Sweeter (Than You Girl)". Enjoy!
