Duke Browner - Crying Over You- Impact

60s SoulPosted by Martin Fri, November 26, 2010 16:04:59

Problably one of my top ten records of all time, I just never get tired of hearing this 1966 release.

Barney "Duke" Browner worked mainly as a producer and songwriter at Harry Balk´s Impact label, which was located in Detroit Michigan. There is not much information about him to go about but what is clear is that he was involved in a lot of recordings that later on became northern soul classics, "Lady In Green" by The Magnetics, "Walk On Into My Heart" by Bobbie Smith, "If You Ever Walk Out Of My Life" by Dena Barnes and many, many more. Rumors has it that Browner converted to islam and is no longer interested in talking about his musical past. A shame if we cannot get the full story, but the music that he left behind will stand well on its own.

Ps It´s a rough looking label, as my good friend Samuel calls it "Detroit Mint". The sound is hopefully what you´re interested in... Ds

"Crying Over You"
