STS CD 6348
Contains the original version of the Detroit soul anthem "Detroit, Michigan", as recently covered by Kid Rock.
Tuff City's Soul-Tay-Shus label presents another offering of Detroit '60s (Northern) soul from the D-Town vaults. With vocal power that equalled the Temptations & Curtis Mayfield's Impressions, the Peps' recordings featured session musicians from Motown's heyday including the legendary Funk Brothers (Detroit sessions) and also musicians from the Hi Rhythm section who rose to fame backing the likes of Al Greene (Memphis sessions). This compilation features originals such as "Speak Your Peace" and "With These Eyes" and hip-shaking covers of "Gypsy Woman" & "So Fine." The CD features 5 additional tracks not available on the vinyl counterpart, profoundly vivid liner notes by veteran writer Mike Hurtt and many previously unpublished photos from the scrapbooks of the group members. The Fabulous Peps' "Detroit, Michigan!" joins Lee Rogers' "Sock Some Love Power To Me!" (STS CD/LP 6347) in Tuff City's MOTOR CITY SOUL SOLDIERS series.
