For those of you who never get over to the Soulful Detroit side of things, the webisode about the Correc-tone recording label (see left) provides an interesting, captivating slice of local music history. Extremely well-written by Graham Finch, the information is supplemented by Lowell's excellent graphic work. Definitely enjoyable and worth reading (and listening).

The late fifties to early sixties in Detroit are amazing for the entreprenuerial energy of an exciting music industry that gave rise to some of the greatest classics of Detroit Soul and drove the Detroit sound to worldwide fame.
The first line of Graham's excellent study of Correc-Tone captures the size and nature of that scene.
Over 400 different record labels mushroomed in Detroit during the 1960s. With that figure in mind, you could be forgiven for thinking the unheralded Correc-tone Recording Company was just of one of the many outfits that failed to make it in the notoriously dog-eat-dog music business. But don’t jump to conclusions; there’s something special about this particular company.
