  • The Elgins CD " For Your Precious Love Unreleased Album 1966-1972 " Soul Bag Records DP 141 [ FR ]

    J'ai regroupé quelques titres inédits avec deux ou trois versions alternatives de chansons non réalisées afin de prolonger une discographie trop courte à mon goût des Elgins . Le résultat nous donne de très bons titres de Doo Wop , Rhythm 'n' Blues , Blues , Blues Jazz et bien sur de Northern Soul . Une partie est réservée aux Elgins et une autre aux Downbeats et Saundra Mallett ( Aka The Elgins ) . coolcoolcool
