J. B. Bingham

Back to normal for this weeks Science of Soul after being away for a couple of weeks, I was so honored to be the first non American to be invited to present an award at the R&B Hall of Fame awards held last weekend in Detroit. You will find lots of music from these inducted legends in this weeks show. It was an amazing event so we have decided to share a bunch of pictures with you just give you a little flavor of it all. I was also invited to appear on The Brenda Perryman show once again, it's always a pleasure to see Ms Perryman, her show is one of the most popular morning TV shows in metro Detroit.

JB Bingham biography:
In 1976, James B. Bingham the former lead singer of the group Five Flight's Up recorded 7 songs under the auspices of H.B. Barnum and Steve Binder. Binder then offered the fruits of this session to the United Artists label. Out of the 7 songs presented to them the powers that be only chose to pick up 4 songs which they released on two 45 singles "All Alone By The Telephone/Live And You Learn" (UA-XW1059)and "She's Gone/Keep On Walking" (UA-XW872-Y)which subsequently left three tracks silting unused in the can. A situation later rectified when in 2013 we at Soul Junction contacted firstly J.B. Bingham and then H.B. Barnum which lead to the final release of two of the U.A rejects "People On A Ego Trip/She's On Strike" on a popular and now long deleted 45 single.
Therefore we had one track left at our disposal "Fellas, Don't Let The Girls Take Over" J.B's upbeat and light hearted warning song to the men of the world to shape and not be swept aside by the growing women's liberation movement! That left us with the dilemma of what to use for a b-side, this situation thus being solved by the inclusion of J.B's timeless modern soul anthem "All Alone By The Telephone" as the flipside.
