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: info@soultreats.se

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 Pinkertones feat. Eddie Gross - It´s Not The Way You Walk - Queen G

60s SoulPosted by Martin Fri, November 19, 2010 14:16:55

A tricky little record to find, it can´t have sold many copies when it was released back in 1969. Eddie Gross seems to be the key player here since his name is on the label no less than five times, writing, singing, arranging, publishing and even in the little slogan "If It´s Gross, It´s The Most". Great stuff, and I can´t understand why that, together with the wonderful horn arrangments, did not carry this record to greater heights. The Queen G setup most have been a minscule little operation (perhaps by Gross himself) because I only know of one or two other records on this San Diego label and they are very hard to get as well.

Enjoy!

Bruce Norton is my name, and I was the drummer on the Eddie Gross sessions along with John Fung, John Bovee and the below listed musicians. Victor Leca was our fine sax player. Recorded by Lee Caroll at his parents South Park home. Lee went on to form Studio West. Would like to be in touch with the guys on the session and the Pinkertones band members! 45 years is a long time! :) nortonchulavista@peoplepc.com

I was the bass player in the "Pinkertones" as I recall Johnny Martinez on guitar, Gary Trerise keyboard, and Bruce Norton on drums. Eddie was very ambitious and a great showman.

Heres a little note on the recording. It was made in San Diego at a recording studio in San Diego, Hillcrest area. I cannot recall the name of the studio, but it was a private residence. I would love to get a copy of this recording. jrbandlsb@comcast.net.
