RK pres: Early Clover & The Geogia Soul DriftersPublished on Lunedì, 10 Novembre 2014
RK pres. 2 incredibly hard to find and super hot deep funk & x-over soul pearls out of Macon, Georgia on a super limited edition 45. Get it now on Bandcamp
Recorded at Phil and Alan Walden's Capricorn Studios and produced by Tad Bush, "Freedom" and "Think it Over" by Early Clover & The Georgia Soul Drifters were originally released in 1977 on a super scarce 45 by legendary "northern soul" label Dove Records. The original 45 is very hard to find and original master tapes were lost in a fire that destroyed Early Clover's home in the 80s. Both tracks are currently super in-demand spins on both rare soul and funk dancefloors. Born in 1953 in Dublin Georgia, Early Clover formed his band at the age of 16 and later went on to become the opening act for some of the hottest names in the south of USA, such as Betty Wright, The Temptations, The Marvellettes and Tyrone Davis. In the 70s became the road band and back up for William Bell, Rufus Thomas, and Joe Simon to name a few and collaborated with James Brown in writing techniques of songs. Currently relocated in Las Vegas, Early Clover is still very active. This is a strictly limited to 600 copies 45 so don't sleep on it... essential spin!
