Emanuel Laskey - Don't Lead Me On Baby - Thelma

60s SoulPosted by Martin Tue, June 21, 2011 20:25:50
A giant in underground soul music but sadly failed to make any real mark on the commercial side of things, Emanuel Laskey's output has, and still is, been largely underappreciated by the masses. Unfairly so, methinks, as most of his records on small Detroit labels like this in the 60s was quality through and through. Hailed as a hero on the U.K's northern soul scene because of tracks like this one can only hope that recognition for Mr. Laskey will come eventually, and it seems like it has to as the recordings just keep on gaining popularity. This is Laskey's sixth release for the Thelma imprint, released in 1965 it just preceded his anthemic "I'm A Peace Loving Man" for the same label,one which you will find featured elsewhere in these pages. Enjoy!

"Don't Lead Me On Baby"
