Dee Edward You Say You Love Me
While having my own little tribute to Dee Edwards, I dug out the above gorgeous melodic 1963 sound from Detroit.
A roll of the drums sets this sensuous mid-tempo side off. On this side, Dee is firmly in the same bag as the early Motown sides of Kim Weston and Brenda Holloway. A very haunting 45 with an almost cha-cha beat and lots of electric organ which is offset with a memorable chorus of male and female singers singing "Got To Have You" and Really Really Need You".
Partly written by Mike Hanks - check out his story on the excellent Soulful Detroit site which tells how this came out on the Tuba label.
