What it is.

Soultreats is Soulville U-A´s music blog. It´s updated several times a week with a new soulful record. It is our chance to spotlight the artists and record labels that made the music but rarely the charts.
It´s a celebration!

The legacy.
If you are, know or have any information about the artists, labels or musicians etc. that are mentioned in these pages, please share it with us by sending an email to: info@soultreats.se

Do not use the comment button for this since there is no way for me, for now, to know which additions have been commented on. Help us be as detailed as we possibly can in our description of this wonderful music.

Thanks in advance.

The Visitors - My Love Is Ready And Waiting - Tangerine

60s SoulPosted by Martin Mon, May 24, 2010 18:41:08

The northern soul theme that Soultreats! had last week ended on a high with our season´s finale at Östgöta Nation, with some great great music being played by guest DJs Andreas Dienel and Magnus Rähms, thanks guys! To start this week off I´ve picked this wonderful crossover track from 1969, which in fact has a great northern track on the other side but that´ll have to wait for now...

This group is not the same as the one who recorded out of Chicago and had releases on the Bashie and Dakar labels. I´m not exactly sure where this incarnation of The Visitors came from but the record gives credits to J. Carmichael as arranger and Len Jewell as a writer and producer which suggest somewhere on the West Coast, possibly Los Angeles. The group consisted of Godoy Colbert, James Nelson, Esko Wallace, Robert Taylor and possibly a fifth member called Orlando (last name?). Only two records were released on Tangerine, this one in ´69 and the second, and final, in 1970. Neither did much for the group at the time of release, but has since risen in stature and are now cherished items by soul collectors all over the world. Enjoy!
