EPITOME OF SOUND - YOU DON'T LOVE ME



NEWS FLASH! I was contacted by Mr Jean Thomas, who was the lead singer for Epitome Of Sound! He is still singing, and it turns out the band itself were white dudes, and Jean is a black man. I saw an amazing photo of the band from back in the day.

Allegedly a "blue eyed soul" track (not entirely!), no one seems to know much of anything about the group behind this legendary record. we do know that this was one of the big records at the Wigan (UK) Casino, home of the massive soul nights throughout the seventies that helped bring records like this out of obscurity and onto the want lists of people for the last thirty years.

This record has that great, low budget production crackle with so much energy and passion, and the song has all the characteristics of an "anthem".

I'm guessing at the year. As always, if any readers have any more info you'd like to share, it's always welcome and appreciated.

I wonder if the arranger is Tony Camillo, who went on to have a hit with Bazuka?
