SHORTY LONG – Here Comes The Judge [1968]

R-1351178-1390603739-3063.jpeg

“Alabama singer, musician and composer Shorty Long relocated to Detroit, after touring with The Ink Spots. He was signed to Harvey Fuqua’s Tri-Phi label, where he released three singles that did not chart. When Fuqua sold his business to Berry Gordy, Long became a Motown artist. More singles followed with little success on the subsidiary label Soul, starting in 1964 with “Devil in the Blue Dress”, which Mitch Ryder covered and turned into a huge hit. Long had to wait until 1968 for a change of luck, when his funky composition “Here Comes the Judge” went to the Top 10. Motown rush-released an album, with all the singles and new songs. The following year, after recording his second album (which he also produced, a privilege that only Smokey Robinson had at Motown, by then), Long died in a boating accident on the Detroit river.”

Now! Here’s pretty fine slice of sweet 60’s R&B/Soul music for your sweet summer vacation. Vinyl Rip! Ain’t no justice? Here comes Mr.Eliminator, Dig!!!
