Dance With The Contours







Release Year


Kent is delighted to present the first of several CDs that we’ll be issuing this year under legal license from, and with the full approval of, the owners of the Motown catalogue.

“Dance With The Contours” is an expansion of a planned but never-issued 1964 album by the all-singing, all-shouting, all-dancing sextet. Its original 12 tracks are augmented by a further 14 unissued dancers from the same period, with a couple of slower sides thrown in to give old timers a bit of breathing space. Of the 26 tracks featured, only two of them are previously released.

All tracks are mastered from fresh 2011 transfers of the original Motown ¼ inch tapes (even the two previously issued) and all are presented exactly how you would have heard them almost half a century ago.

With notes by universally-acknowledged Motown expert Keith Hughes, who interviewed Contour Joe Billingslea in January 2011 specifically for the project, wrapped in a booklet featuring a wealth of previously unpublished and rare period photos of the group, this is a package that no collector of early 60s Detroit soul can afford to be without.  – Ace Records
