“A top-notch discovery and perfect for the scene” Donald Moore, soul fan Michigan, USA
Hamilton was born in Birmingham, Alabama and moved to East Detroit as a young child. There he later formed the Arabians (including members Clarence McClean, George Goodman, Charles Laird and Robert Tutt). Record label owner and singer, Johnnie “Mae” Matthews gave them their first release “The Shack” on her Northern Label in 1960. Their next stop was the Lanrod label and their first encounter with the influential James Hendrix who issued “My One Possession” on Carrie records. Two tracks recorded for Hendrix were released to James Kemper’s New York Label, Le Mans, and although “(Please) Take a Chance on Me” didn’t hit at the time, it became a huge collector’s item ten years on. After a brief spell with a new Falcons line-up, Hamilton returned to Hendrix, who was then working with Lou Beatty, and was put under Melvin Davis’s wing, recording “Call Me” for Carrie records. The track had sufficient potential to go to New York again, this time on the Jameco record label. In 1967 Hamilton reunited with the Arabians and signed for Beatty’s Mary Jane label, with Coleman instead of Tutt. The label brought a clutch of excellent sides, all now revered on the Northern Soul and Detroit collectors scenes. Following the closure of La Beat records and subsequently Mary Jane, Hamilton left the music scene to work in the car plants.
Adapted from Keith Rylatt “Groovesville USA – The Detroit Soul and R&B Index”
BDYW writers
“Sadly, Fred (Bridge) and Richard (Knight) would also have to deal with clerical error at La Beat. “We wrote a song called ‘I’m Coming Home’ for Edward Hamilton & the Arabians. They made a mistake and called it “Baby Don’t You Weep’.”
This is was a number of songs which Fred lists as missing from the BMI database. It would be sad to think that they had missed out on royalties for this classic song. SoulfulDetroit

UK Grapevine Records Release GRP 134 (1980)
Grapevine label owner John Anderson struck a licensing deal with Lou Beatty, owner of the La Beat, Mary Jane and Carrie labels. Several of Lou’s productions appeared on Grapevine records. BDYW had been bootlegged a year earlier, Grapevine made the decision to place the uptempo dancer “I’m Gonna Love You” on the B-side. “I’m Gonna Love You” had earlier been listed as Eddie Holman’s ‘Eddie’s My Name’, which surfaced instead on Grapevine’s third album, “This Is Northern Soul’ – the last and rarest of the three Grapevine albums, this had suffered from distribution problems.
“Lou Beatty owned a construction company and liquor store in Detroit. I offered him, say, a thousand dollars for the label and got all the records and tapes — lock, stock and barrel. It was nothing to him anymore. Edward Hamilton made records throughout the 60’s and had a local following in Detroit.” John Anderson (Sowl Bowl Records)
Adapted from Planet Records
Some othe original Mary Jane P 1005 A have a label variation with the “Mike Terry” crediting omitted.
The look-alike US bootleg record is plain black and white. The original records have white and red square designs with blue lettering.

Earl Grant (January 20, 1931 — June 10, 1970) was an American pianist, organist, and vocalist popular in the 1950s and 1960s.
Grant was born in Idabel, Oklahoma. Though he would be known later for his keyboards and vocals, Grant also played trumpet and drums. Grant attended four music schools, eventually becoming a music teacher. He augmented his income by performing in clubs during his army service, throughout which he was stationed in Fort Bliss, Texas. Grant signed with Decca Records in 1957 and his first single “The End” reached number 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Ebb Tide, released in 1961, was his first album, which also rose to number 7 on the Billboard 200. The single “Ebb Tide” sold over one million copies, gaining gold disc status. He recorded five more singles that made the charts, including “Swingin’ Gently” (from Beyond the Reef), and six additional albums (mostly on the Decca label) through 1968. He also recorded the album Yes Sirree and the instrumental albumTrade Winds, single-tracked on the Hammond organ and piano, featuring the love theme from the film El Cid and Chaplin’s “Eternally”. This album featured some realistic sounding ‘tropical bird calls’ produced by his electric organ. “The House of Bamboo” was another big-selling single. In all, Grant recorded 30 albums for Decca.
Several of his albums featured tenor saxophonist Plas Johnson.
Grant also made a few appearances in film and television, including Tender Is the Night (1962), Juke Box Rhythm (1959), and The Ed Sullivan Show (1961).
He died instantly in a car accident in Lordsburg, New Mexico, at the age of 39 when the car he was driving ran off Interstate 10. He was driving from Los Angeles to an intended destination in Juarez, Mexico. His 17-year-old cousin was also killed in the accident.

Hey folks! I wrote this song about year ago and it’s just up on Spotify. Long story short about this song, I wrote this lyrics back when I was in Bali. There, I met a beautiful soul who inspired me to see more of the Atlas and since then she gave me very good vibes even from across the ocean. And yet its friendship still last. So here I am just trying to share its positive vibes even just a bit.

“You Don’t Know What Love Is” is a popular song of the Great American Songbook. The music was written by Gene de Paul, and the lyrics by Don Raye. The song was published in 1941. It was written for the Abbott and Costello film Keep ‘Em Flying, and featured Carol Bruce as the vocalist. However, the song was dropped from the film prior to release and was never used. Miles Davis and other jazz musicians began recording and playing the song in the 1950s, after which it became a popular jazz standard. The song was also notable as the leitmotif for the film, The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999).

A small selection of the videoclips that I VJ with at the Amsterdam Soul Club.
Most original material had unusable audio and had to be completely reworked. The live performances were synched to studio-recordings, where possible from vinyl 45´s.
At the moment my collection contains about 400 Motown and Northern Soul videoclips. Good for a unique, steaming two hour VJ set.
Btw, the Arthur Conley footage was actually shot in Amsterdam, Holland in 1968!
