Andrews, Ruby

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Andrews, Ruby - Black Ruby Black Ruby
Soul New - LP ZS-LP 1002 Zodiac
Sealed Original (Tiny Amount Of Wear On The Bottom Left Corner Where A Small Piece Of Shrink Wrap Is Missing). A Holy Grail Among Northern Soul Fans. Mississippi-Born But Chicago-Identified, Andrews Was Part Of The Detroit-Based Brothers Of Soul (One Of Several Female Leads They Worked With In The Late '60s). The Brothers Were Also The Team Behind Zodiac And, They Also Recorded Under The Name, The Creations. The Brothers Are Responsible For The Sound Behind Andrews' Black Ruby LP And Thus, Deserve Part Of The Credit For Lacing Her With Some Fantastic Production: A Rousing, Energetic Mix Of Mid-60s Funk And Soul That's A Nice Fit With Andrews' Powerful Vocals. "Whatever It Takes To Please You" Showcases All Those Elements, Combined With A Thick Sound That Draws Powers Off The Horn And String Sections But Most Of All, That Driving Bass That Anchors The Whole Song.... more details
 
Andrews, Ruby - Black Ruby Black Ruby
Soul New - LP ZS 1002 Zodiac
Sealed 1972 Original. “Ruby Andrews' Second Album On Zodiac Records Has Many Highs; It Produced The Minor Hit "You Made A Believer Out Of Me." Another Cut, "Just Lovin' You," A 1968 Mid-Tempo Romp With Passionate Wailing, Has Achieved Cult Status Among European Soul Fans And To Many Makes This Whole Hard-To-Find Album Worthwhile. Though Zodiac Was Based In Chicago, Owner Ric Williams Cut These Tracks At Universal Studios In Memphis, TN, In An Attempt To Give The Album Southern Flavor. He Didn't Quite Achieve His Goal, As These Sound Like Uptown Cuts And Not At All Like What Carla Thomas Was Doing. Other Picks Include "(I Wanta Be) Whatever It Takes To Please You," "Overdose Of Love," "My Love Is Comin' Down," And "Hound Dog." Andrew Hamilton, All Music Guide.... more details
