electric ladies KING KONG










question- was soul music to have existed in 1933, might FAY WRAY have promulgated eugenicists final nightmare assisted by the tender troglodyte mitt of an over-sized brow ridge and stunning sagittal crest?

a meager digital dossier exists for THE ELECTRIC LADIES, and even less of the evidence confirming subsequent offspring.  MAINSTREAM RECORDS has about as much of a paper trail, too.  establishing themselves as a jazz label, MAINSTREAM adapted to the soul market in the early seventies, pressing artists like FREDDIE SCOTT & AFRIQUE.  the original b/w of this 45 is entitled NOTHING BETWEEN US, however, this copy is the mono and stereo mixes of the same tune.

sadly, all licensing of the mainstream catalog is owned by cultural/intellectual hegemytes, sony.
