Brit's supreme dream comes true with the Motown sound

That's the headline (and link to) an article from the Saturday, April 12 Detroit News, about the love that many in England have for the soul music that came out of Detroit from the late 1950s and into the 1970s. Not just Motown recordings, but also music on other local labels. What's cool about this guy is that he went beyond just being a fan and collector, to working with guitarist Dennis Coffey to use Detroit musicians from that era, including some Funk Brothers, to record four new songs. I love hearing about people who pursue their dreams beyond what the average person might attempt.
