Hi this is Kev-Lo I hope I'm not boring you people when I talk about rare soul.But I just love it so much and I grew up on a lot of it and I just love putting it on this great forum.Well here I go again with some of the rarest of the rare.
The ENANOMS came out with a cut in the mid to late 60's called ONE HEART
THE HEARTBREAKERS had a cut in 1968 called HOW DO YOU SAY GOODBYE
THE YOUNG MODS one of the rarest of the rare groups did a cut called GLORIA
THE ROYAL FIVE was a rare group with a smooth soul sound. they did a soul ballard called I'M GONNA KEEP LOVING YOU.I would like to know if anybody can tell me exactly what year did that song come out.They also did a version of the Magnificent Men's song Piece O Mind.
THE GIFTS were another rare act with a great soul sound. They did a couple songs called LOVING YOU and WHAT AM I
BILLY AND THE BLOODKNOTS did a song I Believe in 1969 but quote me if I'm wrong.And It was called GOTTA GET AWAY.
Again I would like very much if somebody can give me some info on these rare soul acts

Kev-Lo, I seem to recall that a group called The Heartbreakers was managed by Shirley Ellis' husband. The cut you mention was released on DERBY 101. I used to have a scan of this release but lost it (and a lot more) when my computer crashed.

As far as I remember, The Gifts were on a San Francisco Bay label.
Kev, are you sure that group is called "Enanoms?-and not Emanons? I remember the latter group, but never heard of an Enanoms. Of course that doesn't mean there wasn't a group spelt that way, but it IS a very odd letter/sound combination for English speakers to come up with!

Heartbreakers--out of Kentucky (Louisville?). One side of the record, "I've Got to Face It", is Northern, the other "How Do You Say Goodbye" is sweet soul, so something for everyone there.
Gifts--on the Ballad label. "You Can't Keep Love in a Broken Heart" is brilliant! Also check out the Citations and "Keep the Faith" on the same label.
Royal Five--out of Philly, they also had a single on Arctic as well. I think they had the final release on that label, the songs being "Peace of Mind" and "Ain't No Big Thing (But It's Growing)".
