I'm practically speechless! They are absolutely beautiful. Thank you for sharing these images, Derek.

I just realized that you and Jocelyn from This Is Northern Soul must have access to the same treasure trove. She let me use her copy of the same Barbara and Brenda a few weeks ago. Ah, the generosity of soul fans . . .

MM said...

Derek, I was wondering if you could let me know if it would be alright for me to use the photo of Candi Staton in my next posting? I'll give you credit, of course. Thanks in advance.

Thank you. So many in there I'd never seen before.

That's a beautiful shot of Loraine Ellison...and damn, Lee Rogers look like just as much trouble as I imagined.
