|Drew records were a subsidary of Sidra Records. The Precisions were a vocal group formed by Arthur Ashford, Michael Morgan and Dennis Gilmore on the Motor City's west side, a neighbourhood mecca for much of the city's R&B talent as well as the site of its densest aggregation of recording studios.With a few obscure mid-'60s singles on the prolific Detroit soul and R&B label D-Town already to their name, the Precisions would go on to add young college student Billy Prince as a lead vocalist in 1967. This selection, the debut release of the reconfigured group, would be the first of five Precisions records on Drew Records, a label whose discography, as it turns out, only included other Precisions records.
"Such Misery" follows faithfully in that time-honored soul music tradition of rallying cries for the broken-hearted. Nothing new there. "Such Misery" is quite striking, however, for its drastic changes in feeling and tempo, its thudding drums and bass the colossal Yang to the celestial Yin of its vibraphone and graceful harmonies.(officenaps.com) Northern Soul plays in yellow.
