Playing tracks by
The Fantastic Shadows, Little Shadows and The Little Shadows.
This is the forth in a series of mini mixes focusing on 5 tracks by a single artist.
These will mostly be specializing in the world of gospel soul and funk, hopefully shedding some light to artists that have gone far too long without their due recognition.
For this spotlight, we head to Southern Florida for the incredible music of the Little Shadows.
The Shadows are a self contained group led by their father, Rev Freddie Davis & feature family members Althea, Revi, Leslie, Glenile & Francene Davis....all are talented instrumentalists as well as having a brace of amazing vocals. The group began touring South of Florida & crossing into Georgia in 1965. Lead vocals were generally shared between Althea & Leslie, the baby of the group.....without doubt the two power house performances featured here are from Althea. A vocalist that surely should have gained way more shine....be amazed by these Shadows!
The tracks here are presented on 4 labels; Du-Vern, Mission, Lesley & Zan.
