What it is.

Soultreats is Soulville U-A´s music blog. It´s updated several times a week with a new soulful record. It is our chance to spotlight the artists and record labels that made the music but rarely the charts.
It´s a celebration!

The legacy.
If you are, know or have any information about the artists, labels or musicians etc. that are mentioned in these pages, please share it with us by sending an email to:

Do not use the comment button for this since there is no way for me, for now, to know which additions have been commented on. Help us be as detailed as we possibly can in our description of this wonderful music.

Thanks in advance.



The Players - Why Did I Lie - Minit

60s SoulPosted by Martin Mon, September 13, 2010 21:33:08

This is the group´s second 45 for the Minit label, it came out in June ´66 about six months after their wonderful Vietnam war inspired ballad "He´ll Be Back". The group conisted of Herbert Butler (lead) Johnny Carter, Verne Allison, Mickey McGill and Chuck Barksdale on their debut 45 but several members left before today´s treat was released; Carter, Allison and McGill disappeared and were replaced by Tommie Johnson, Joe Brackenridge and Otha Lee Givins respectively. This incarnation saw two more 45s out on Minit records the following year but saw little success with them. Enjoy!
