The Originals Special with CP Spencer

This special podcast only edition is is being made available thanks to Mickey Nold, in more ways than one Mickey is responsible, it was him who put a reel to reel recorder in my bag and said interview these people! you know now all these years later I am so glad he did. This particular one is very dear to me having been a big fan of The Originals.

I first heard "Baby I'm For Real" when I was just a kid in school it blew me away then, it still does the same thing today. Back then I would never have imagined in my wildest dreams that one day we would become true friends. This interview was recorded in Warren, Michigan after Hank Dixon, Freddy Gorman & Walter Gains had relocated to California and Ty Hunter had joined the group. 

C P was the only Original left in Detroit. Just hearing this transports me back in time some 19 years, and thankfully Mickey has preserved this and many other interviews I did back then for PCRL and he continually works tirelessly to restore and convert them from the original reel to reel tapes to a digital format to achieve the best sound quality possible. Sit back and enjoy a slice of Motown history ... they were the golden years.  Next  Wednesday, Louvain Demps Special.


Recorded on 10-07-1997 in Detroit and broadcasted on Mickey's Basement Soul Show on PCRL Radio Birmingham 103.5 FM later that year

  1. A great interview. Nice to hear Crathman Plato's voice still after all these years. I talked to him at length for my Spinners Story in 2002. For some reason in this interview he skips his Five Jets/Five Stars stints.
    Best regards
