Smoke - Have I Really Lost You - J.Bridge

70s SoulPosted by Martin Thu, April 02, 2009 09:29:09

The groups only record as far as I now, at least under the name Smoke. Brothers Ernest & Arthur Malone, Larry Brown and Melvin Manning had this released on the J.Bridge label in 1975. J.Bridge I believe is a subsidary to Midwest records out out Missouri. The intended A-side is called "I´m So Lonely" but the real gem to me is "Have I Really Lost You" whick is a nice midtempo thing with several different lead singers. The only thing though, and this is not common for me to think about a soul record, is that it might actually be a bit long. The last 30 seconds or so seems to me that they could have edited out, as it really doesn´t contribute to the song. That´s my opinion though, you may feel differently. And I guess the group wanted it to go on forever as it was their only release.

"Have I Really Lost You"
