The Radiations

It is with great pleasure that we announce the latest Diggin’ Deep 45. A pair of excellent group Soul tracks, available to pre order on 23rd September 2019.

The top side, ‘That’s The Way (Our Love Is)’ is a blistering, midtempo, number from The Radiations, a New York based vocal group, famed for their much loved 1969 outing on Valise ‘Love Be Not a Stranger’. This previously unissued record has been very well received by lovers of group and ‘crossover’ soul whenever it’s been played out. It’s bound to be a winner in discerning soul circles.

The Radiations were one of a stable of artists that New York producer David Blake worked with which included the Quotations, Frank Dell, The Headliners, Jackie Owens and Johnny Watson on Valise. They were all based around New York and this fine midtempo treasure is an example of soul group singing at its best.

The flipside ‘When You’re Poor’ from The Lovers is another ‘previously unreleased on vinyl’ number, written and arranged by Arthur Wright. Following its discovery and inclusion in the bestselling compilation ‘This Is Lowrider Soul’ last year, the track has become hugely appreciated across the USA, Europe and beyond by lovers of sweet and group soul music.

The Lovers were stationed at the Deal Air Force base in northern California and had releases on Vardan as The Emotions and Philips as The Lovers, and later on Minit, Boola-Boola and Fantasy recording as the Pacesetters. This Diggin’ Deep 45 is the first vinyl release from the group in over 40 years.
