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.

International GTO´s - I Love My Baby - Rojac

60s SoulPosted by Martin Tue, November 30, 2010 21:47:03

A 1966 release with an almost frantic approach, thus making it perfect for the northern soul scene. If northern soul music is basically about on the fours Motown copycats, but with a twist, then this fits the bill perfectly!

The International GTO´s consisted of Willie Powell, Tunde Aleem (later replaced by Arthur Allen) Norman Dade and Tommy Lockhart (lead). They only had one 45 released under that name, but had previously recorded in 1963 as The Master Four on Tay-Ster and released a wonderful doo-wop ballad called "It´s Not The End". I believe that the Tay-Ster and Rojac labels were connected (possibly owned by one
Jack Taylor) but I´m not sure on this. It also seems like both labels and the group originated from the Harlem area in N.Y.C.

Enjoy!

"I Love My Baby"
