Fifteen years ago I first spotted the name Brothers Of Soul in an English fanzine. It was a hip name for a group, and the writer suggested that they had never made a bad recording. Praise indeed.

I searched for more information and eventually found a cd which displayed the beautiful harmonies and melodies that were the hallmark of this trio.

However, there was more, much more to be learned about the Brothers Of Soul, and in particular one of it's members, Fred Bridges, whose story weaves through the classic studios of Sixties Detroit and beyond.

This is his story, enjoy!
