Revilot Productions Inc.

Lafayette Plaisance
1 - 519

This would certainly have been a desirable residence in sixties Detroit, yet it was situated only a few hundred yards south east of the ghettoes of  Hastings Street.

Number 519 would have been the 19th flat on the fifth floor of this 'Pavilion'.

Revilot was co-owned by Lebaron Taylor and Don Davis. I would think that this would be the address of Lebaron however, and obviously it would have been used for administrative purposes only.

Issue 201 was one of the greatest soul music sides of all time in 'Open the door to your heart' by Darrell Banks. 

It is rumoured that Revilot was Lebaron's surname, Toliver spelled backwards. In his obituary last year, however, he was known purely as Lebaron Taylor. Aged 65 he was described as a trailblazing executive in the entertainment industry, a prominent civic leader and above all, a humanitarian.

Note that Duke Browner also stayed on the twelfth floor of this building at one stage.
