Alright, back on track with the additions finally, (think that I actually posted one extra, but consider that an early X-mas gift...) we´ll start off this week Soultreats! with this nice midtempo mover from June 1970.
Leroy Crume and Calvi April signed with the Stax subsidary Volt records in 1969 and had their first 45 out shortly after. Crume ( I assume it´s the same guy) had earlier recorded with his brothers Dillard, Arthur and Rufus on Peacock, Atco and Chess, going back as early as 1962 for their Peacock release. His new venture, the duo Branding Iron only had two releases on Volt "Right, Tight An Out Of Sight" (the official A-side on this record) in 1970 and "Born Too Late" BW "If I Could See" the year after. Branding Iron cut one more record in 1974 on the Stag label before vanishing into obscurity. Although today´s addition was deemed the less markable track, being the B-side of the record, I think this is actually the better side of the two. Enjoy!
"Slave For Love"
