Sound

Untitled
Sound
Blue eyed soul label. 1960's first owned by Howard Walker then Danny & Larry Pavlick (aka Lick). 8614 Van Dyke, Detroit 48213. Connected to various Sound Inc. labels from 56880 North New Haven, Michigan 48048. Label almost went bankrupt when "Rosanna" hit because they couldn't afford all the pressings he needed to support the demand and he wasn't getting paid fast enough by the distributors. Al Reid was the lead singer of the Capreez. Before that, he was with the Ook-piks and played with the Soul Survivors and Messiah & The Goodtime Band.

All Brothers

Untitled
All Brothers Although this was a Philly label it's thought to have Detroit connections.White label bootleg copies exists of Ann Robinson & red ones of Emanon Bros.. Ann recorded initially for Sonny Hopsons All Brothers label which released 'Bird Walkin' by the Emanons Orch, which despite different writer/publisher credits, is a reworking of the rhythm track of 'World of happiness' ..... The Emanons as 'The Freedom Now Brothers' released a track called 'Sissy walk' on All Brothers and Ann cut a vocal on this entitled 'you did it' ....what Sonny told Dave was that he had wanted to do 'Bird Walkin' as a vocal but the Emanons (a male group) couldn't cut the vocal track how he wanted so he got Ann to do a vocal on that tune as well which was never issued.
