Thanks in advance.



Derek Martin - Sly Girl - Tuba

60s SoulPosted by Martin Fri, March 04, 2011 23:00:52

A 1967 release on this short lived record label which I think was based in Detroit MI. Martin was a Detroit native and had previously, dating back to the 50s, been in various Doo-Wop and RnB groups, The Pearls and The Top Notes, as well as singing with Duke Ellington. In the mid sixties he decided to go solo and recorded for several labels like Roulette, Tuba and Crackerjack. This 45, which was also picked up bý Stax records and released on that label in the U.K., is to me his best although his #47 RnB hit "You Better Go" for Roulette records comes close, enjoy!

"Sly Girl"
