Science of Soul time once again I was feeling kind of retro when I put this show together as you will see from the playlist, but do listen out for a new single from Connie G, entitled "Put It In Your Life" and some more new music from Adrena and Soul Junction's label have come up with another winner with G-Era called "Making Love", that's a nice slice of sweet Detroit Soul.

Gospel touch this week belongs to Reverend Clinton Colemen that's called "Write Up To Heaven,"  it's been lifted from his Album "Better Get Justified," he's based in Las Vegas and is the cousin of Prince Phillip Mitchell so he comes from good stock.

Great to see Tower of Power will be in London in November I feel a trip coming on ... more about that nearer the time though. Now it's music time enjoy and tell a friend.

‘G’ Era is the current name of the group formerly known as Bernard Gibson & Liv-N-Proof. The origins of the group began in early 1974 with Bernard Gibson along with his brothers Arthur, Willie and their brother in law Anthony Pilgrim who together with Lucien Thompson formed the group, The Expo’s, who recorded a solitary 45 entitled “Your Best Friend And Me” for the tiny Stall label . Extending their name to ‘The Exportations” they went on to record the acclaimed album for the United Artists label “Meet The Exportations” which the successful lead 45 “Strange Sensations” was taken from.

As the Exportations they would go on to record two desirable 45’s for the local Detroit label Vir-ro “I Want You/Find Another Day” in 1980 followed a year later by “You Did It/Easy Come Easy Go” both of which went on to find favour with the UK modern soul scene and beyond. As the Exportations they also recorded the disco influenced 12” single “Party Down” in 1982. The group’s earliest use of the name Liv-N- Proof came when the recorded “You And I” for the Ju-Par label during 1977. (more at Soul Junction)
