Has anybody read Marv Goldberg's R&B Notebooks he has a report on Fortune Records and a report on The 5 Dollars [Five Dollars] a/k/a The Don Juans group on Fortune out of Detroit. There's another pt. 2 and more pts on The Five Dollars Story. I don't know if anyone here at Soulfulplanet knows about it or have read it, or not??
 
here's the link if it works....

Wow Thanks Kitten that was a good article.  I got an Adre Williams LP that has some of the tunes with the Five Dollars singing back up.  Will have to play it again soon.

Thanks everybody!
I have been reading about Nolan Strong & Diablos extentive also.
I recall they're records got play in Chicago, a couple i remember did.
Though I never knew the group members names.
My husband was into groups before we ever met and knew more of
their records than I.

Nolan Strong & The Diablos are amazing.
 
"If I"
"The Wind"
"Mind Over Matter"
 
great records.  These guys should be getting way more attention.

I got a buddy of mine who is into Nolan Strong & the Diablos and the whole scene at Fortune Records. Anyhow he does interviews with people and for a while he has been working on a story about Fortune Records. He contacted Nolan Strong's sister but she refused to be interviewed. He als made contact with the only surviving member of the Diablos, as well as Andre Williams and Nathaniel Mayer. My buddy told me last night he got a hold of the Jack and Devora Brown's son(Jack and Devora started Fortune Records and my buddy Rich told me that Devora died recently, which I was not aware of). Apperently Sheldon Brown(Jack and Devora's son) owns all the Fortune masters, and Rich is making contact with him soon.

When Rich gets all this together I'll let yall know whats going on.
