Tera Shirma Studios

Tera Shirma Special

I haven't given David Meikle's Sixties Detroit a shout for awhile. This AM, I popped over and re-read the feature on the legendary studio Tera Shirma by Ralph Terrana.

The re-read prompted me to put together a Tera Shirma Special featuring 4 of my favourite cuts recorded in the studios back in the 60's:

1. Patti Young Head And Shoulders Ernstrat
2. Johnny Rogers Make A Change Amon
3. Dynamics - Yes I Love You Baby Top Ten
4. Milton Wright I Belong To You Carla

    This is Patti Young. My daughter has recently discovered all this northern soul interest. Iam totally shocked since the recording had absolutely no response back then. Just recorded a little number for a friend Freddie Saxon who had a friend Ernie. WHO KNEW. I gotta tell ya it was fun discovering this. I am alive and well living in clinton twp mi.....I leave the singing to my daughter who is an opera singer and vocal couch in San Francisco.

    My dad was Ernie Stratton of Ernstrat. He and Fred Saxon remained friends until my dad pasted away in 2002. Do you know where I can get my hands on any of the records produced by Ernie Stratton or Ernstrat Productions? With much appreciation, Marilyn Stratton-Hatanaka
