The Blues Busters - Love Is The Answer - Minit

70s SoulPosted by Martin Thu, November 26, 2009 21:02:01

Another one from the great Minit label, but this time it is a leased in production I believe. The Blues Busters were a male duo from Jamaica who originally recorded reggae and ska records, and were quite successful doing so. In 1964 the duo, Phillip James and Lloyd Campbell, were invited to play at the world fair in New York by famous jamaican artist and band leader Byron Lee (of Byron Lee & The Dragonaires) . They also supported Sam Cooke on his jamaican tour, and were soon recording and performing soul music rather than reggae or ska. The Blues Brothers frequently went over to the U.S. to perform and record, and had several records out on a host of different labels. This particular track was released in either ´69 or 70 and was co-written by the duo themselves, they also wrote the other side "Speak Your Mind". Sadly though, none of their soul material was as commercially successful as their earlier ska stuff, but is in my opinion still more than a worthwhile addition to any collection. Here is what I see as the finest one.
