There isn’t a huge amount of information regarding the Group and these recordings but what we do know is that they were a Late 60s and early 70s soul act from Los Angeles, California. They also recorded The Fabulous Souls – ‘Deep In The Night / Instr version’ On a ‘No Name’ label. Ira Raibon was not on this session but we do know it was the same Fabulous Souls.

There is very little information on ‘King’ George Renfro and he is certainly no relation as far as we can gather no Renfro label owner Anthony Renfro.

‘I Need You’ was first championed in the 80s by DJ and Collector Ion Tsakalis which he purchased from renowned collector and record dealer Barrie Waddington. Not too long later I wrestled a copy from the hands of well known record dealer Dave Raistrick which is still pride of place in my collection.

Since then it has remained a very rare and sought after 45 which probably meant it had little initial success after it’s release.

Soul-Direction bring you the first legitimate re-release of this soul Rarity Licensed Courtesy of Resnik Music Group.
