Bobby, it's from Columbus, Ohio - it's the B-side
of "Walk On Judge" (Holiday 150) - the single was picked up for national distribution by Bell
and reissued as Bell 758 (02/69). It managed to get a UK release on Pama PM788 - sublicensed to
Pama from EMI who held the UK rights but didn't
want to issue it themselves.

There's a follow up on Bell 792 "Boo Boo" / "Spread" (05/69) but no other records that
I can think of.

Maybe you're thinking of the old New York based
Holiday label that was mainly doowop - it has that
look about it. The Soul Partners record's much later - I'd estimare '67 / '68.

There may be some link to Bill Moss, a gospel singer who had a few secular soul releases
like "Sock It To 'Em, Soul Brother", also on Bell
- Moss later turned up on Westbound but I think
he was always based in Ohio.

If you keep scrolling back through the forum index
you should come to a thread headed something like
"Ohio soul records" where I posted a link to
Dante Carfagna's website - there may be more info. there.

Ignore that 67-68 estimated date - I typed that before the first paragraph. The Holiday issue
is probably from late '68 - Bell were always quick off the mark in picking up records that looked likely to become, at least, local hits.

Moss definitely was based in Ohio...Columbus, to be exact. He was one of the people behind the Capsoul label, which I mentioned in a previous thread was the subject of a new CD.

Best,

Mark
