We are back after a fairly quiet summer.  A case of me playing too much golf and just not being able to find the quality i like when releasing new music. But stop the press, after about 7 years of trying we have finally secured this amazing modern soul winner from 1978 by The Ellis Hall Group.  Hailing out of Boston Massachusetts the group recorded a show reel for tv music show “Nightshift”.  This is where we first heard the incredible “Those Passing Words” and straight away knew we had to have the original studio version.

Also on the tape was the beautiful “What Will I Do” with Gilles Peterson comparing the vocals to Debra Laws.  Ellis Hall later became the main Keyboard player for The Tower Of Power.  At this time we are currently waiting for the full bio about the 1978 band members and story of The Ellis Hall Group .  We will just have to enjoy the music until then!
