The Ruffin Brothers – I Am My Brothes Keeper (OG Ad for the single “Stand By Me”)

The Ruffin Brothers – I Am My Brothes Keeper (Color cover)

Damn, is David’s head really that much smaller than Jimmy’s head?

Anyway, I just listened to this entire record and it was soulful for sure…just wasn’t the most amazing LP I’ve ever heard.  I could def chop some of it up into some hot tracks, which I may do, but as far as listening to it again…it’s gonna get buried in my itunes so it’ll resurface here and there.  I think my favorite joint on here is definitely “Your Love Was Worth Waiting For” as I like the song and these brothers were doing their thing.

If you want to grab the album, download it here.

Btw, I’m a huge fan of David Ruffin….his life, his music, The Temptations, and his legacy as one of the best voices of all time.  RIP Mr. Ruffin.

The Ruffin Brothers – Didn’t I Blow Your Mind (This Time):

Aug 012010


My name is P and I’m a child of the 1970s & 80s.  I grew up on the music from my days and the days of my parents, which in my opinion, is far superior to 99% of the music being released today.  This blog is dedicated to all the things I like that are old school, funk, soul, rock, and in some cases, gospel.  I may tell a story or two about the way the posts make me feel, but for the most part, the old advertisements and images will probably speak for themselves.

Again, I wouldn’t be the person I am today without the music, my parents (Rebecca Jo & Willie Lee), and tons of my friends…namely Dj Strictnine, Ian Rogers, Dozanova, Dj Marvski,  and Rob Rock.

Btw, I’m bad with credits, dates, etc..but I’ll try to do my best when I can.
