The Craig Fahle Show

Melvin Davis and The United Sound

Friday, May 2, 2014

When it comes to Detroit soul music, Motown was not the only show in town. Dozens of other acts recorded what are called “northern soul” records on smaller local imprints. Musician Melvin Davis tells WDET’s Travis Wright about the Detroit soul scene then and now. Rock Mill Records and the Hamtramck Recording Company are hosting “The Northern Soul Experience,” tomorrow in Detroit. The concert features Davis, along with '60s soul recording artists Pat Lewis and Spyder Turner.
