Hello!

Hi, I'm Jesse. and I've been collecting records since I was around 18 years old.  I currently work for Fern & Roby as an Art Director and Product Developer.  We build turntables, speakers, preamps and vinyl related accessories by hand in Richmond, Virginia.

This is my vinyl log.  

Gene & Eddie - True Enough : Gene & Eddie with Sir Joe at Au-Jac

Gene & Eddie - True Enough : Gene & Eddie with Sir Joe at Au-Jac

This compilation focuses on Eugene “Gene” Dorsett and Eddie Best, Jr. and their work with producer Sir Joe Quarterman, a singer and songwriter in his own right. Quarterman gets to shine on several tracks featured here. Quarterman earned the nickname “Sir” in high school as a member of a group called the Knights. Quarterman, Dorsett, and Best Jr. all hailed from the Washington D.C. area and Gene & Eddie never had much success beyond their regional hit, “It’s So Hard”; that’s a shame as the work contained is on par with much of the more highly esteemed soul music.
