OTHEA GEORGE - WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH ME

Here's a great Detroit record from the era when hard rhythm & blues still ruled the city, as the sound of Motown was still in its infancy.

Othea George was a strong voiced singer that sang with a number of groups  (including Doo Woppers The Four Tracks) that makes the lack of ability to dance SERIOUS business on this rocking track.

Arranger, producer and writer Mike Hanks was one of the high number of interesting figures in Detroit R&B; starting in the late 50's, he was responsible for a massive amount of raw records that avoided the slicker Motown sound (notably with singer Lee Rogers). Some time after the release of this single, he sold the "Soul" label name to Berry Gordy, who adopted it as one of the Motown family of label subsidiaries.
