I was wondering if anyone could shead any light on Johnny Rodgers/Nu Tones cut a record on Amon Records 'Make A Change' MID 60'S - of course there are many artists who remain so obscure it's almost impossible to find out any information on them but it would be fantastic if Johnny's still out there just so we can say thanks for one hell of a superb one off effort.
Pride of place in my collection.
Also who were the Brooks Brothers? cut a record on Tay 'Looking For A Woman' I believe they had a connection with T.J Fowler but that's about it.

A fantastic site which pays a wonderful tribute to the one and only Soul City.
I DJ and present a weekly radio show in the UK which without fail touches on the Detroit sound every week.
I just want to thank everyone in Detroit who made it all possible it has certainly made my life very happy.I have a thousand and one other questions so I may contact you again.
Soulfully yours Mark Bicknell UK.

What we should try and arrange from the UK is the ultimate Soul dream! A full trip where Soul fans can discover the real Detroit,see all the sights,visit Motown get all the remaing artists together for a huge UK meets Detroit package. I've been by hundreds hav not so it may be a project to look into.

Mark - I remember hearing that the Brooks Brothers were connected to The Impressions - but can't say if there is any truth in it. As you know - they were also linked to The Sequns 45.

Mark, do you still publish your magazine, Soul Underground?

I'm sure we could provide you with a turntable Mark. It would add that special authenticity as the music on the evening will be from cd.
Basically, we will be in Detroit between 21st and 26th May. We are not records collectors, just amateur historians.
To keep everyone interested the music will be split between Motown and Rare Soul with the latter being represented by the likes of Johnny Rogers and Lee Rogers.
There will be a "site flyer" about the event in the next few weeks. We are hoping for a full house.
