BOB AND EARL have perhaps made more impact on the UK Northern Soul scene than any other duo or individual performer. During their respective careers they have recorded as Bob Relf, Bobby Garrett, Bobby Valentino, Earl Nelson and Jackie Lee. The duo wrote “Harlem Shuffle” in ’63 and it was arranged and produced by West Coast luminairies Barry White and Fred Smith. MEL AND TIM were cousins and were signed to Mel’s mother’s label, Bamboo Records (managed by Gene Chandler), when they hit with “Backfield In Motion” in 1969. The disc went to No.3 R&B and No.10 Pop on the Billboard charts selling over one million copies.

• Chart topping Soul Classics - Two fabulous sides
• As covered by The Rolling Stones and sampled by House Of Pain
