Spyder,
As far as I'm concerned, you are THE AMBASSADOR of promoting
soul music in Detroit. Your shows are electric, and always a thrill
for all to see. In these days it is very hard to find gigs and venues
that support artists like you. I hope that in the near future Detroit
will once again become the center of great entertainment like it was
in days gone by.
         
Your tireless efforts in public relations have made a lot
of impact in this quest. Your great band and showmanship
is a great testimonial to the people of Detroit that wonderful soul
artists are still alive and well in this town.
          
Please keep up your work to keep great soul music
alive in Detroit !!! I hope to see you again soon.
The best,
toad

Hey Mixey,
I don't know Mixey, been there, done that I guess, lol, no, back in the day (60's, of course, the real 'back in the day', lol) I was on the soul scene big time, the whole chitlin' curcit thing, lots of Artists on one big show back then whatever theater it happened to be. I knew some of the players and met alot of them too back then, some were friends, others passing aquaintences. R&B/Soul Music was my thing.
 
Spyder Man,
 WELCOME! What took you so long, lol.........................................................

S.S., you know how I love that photo.  Where was it taken??  Was that in the Jive Five crib in Manhattan??  Can you show us some photos of them and the crib you lived in??
 
If you can, those photos might be better under the Brooklyn thread.

Lord NO, that was not the J.F. crib, the J.F. crib was a roach habitat, LOL!
 
That was my crib in Manhattan when I was dating "Smitty", before he moved me in with him in his Mother's house in Jersey.
 
I have no pics. of the J.F. crib, it was sort of beatniky, orange & black with bongo's sitting in the corner and black shutters on the windows. It was decorated by it's owner Sal who worked at one of the record labels, but later sub-letted or 'loaned' to the J.F. to crash in while in mid-town. They let it go to the roaches, lol!
 
Gotta run for now.

I am going to go for all the folks on the Lupine label.   Just picked up this compilation called The Detroit Girl Groups, amazing stuff!!!!!!

Billy Lee & The Riveras(later to become Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels). Got "Wont You Dance With Me" on a comp, what a great tune.

The Rationals- Michigans best blue eyed soul band, and the best band to come out of Ann Arbor.

The official Little Willie John My Space page is up -- have a look at

 
There's been another site on My Space for a while, but this one is actually administered by Willie's sons. There are great songs and a photo so far, more content to come.
