Description

The Voices Of East Harlem were an ensemble of vocalists who for Just Sunshine Records recorded two albums under the direction of Leroy Hutson and Curtis Mayfield. They were managed by Jerry Brandt, who looked after Sam Cooke, and performed at 1970s Winter Festival of Peace at Madison Square Garden. In 1971 they appeared in the film Soul To Soul made in Ghana. Their first albums were with Elektra Records prior to two albums The Voices Of East Harlem and Can You Feel It now being made available again here on Soul Brother. From The Voices of East Harlem in 1973 came three singles. Cashing In remains the best known and most sight after. Its appeal is to both northern soul and modern soul audiences, especially fans of Leroy Hutsons work here as co-writer and producer. Giving Love was the biggest commercial hit from the album in the USA and Wanted Dead Or Alive remains a rare groove classic. Little People has been a DJ Norman Jaye spin since the rare groove scene days, all tracks on this album in some way contributing to the demand and first legal reissue in two decades from owner Michael Lang, promoter of the original Woodstock music festival. Tracks sampled include Giving Love (by Median, Novej), Wanted, Dead Or Alive (by El Fudge)
