Omnivore Reissue Of Ru-Jac Catalog Continues: 'Gene & Eddie With Sir Joe At Ru-Jac'

Omnivore Reissue Of Ru-Jac Catalog Continues: 'Gene & Eddie With Sir Joe At Ru-Jac'

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Omnivore Recordings continues its restoration and reissue of the mid-í60s Baltimore-based R&B/soul label Ru-Jac Records with True Enough: Gene & Eddie With Sir Joe at Ru-Jac, the first-ever compilation of single sides by Washington D.C.ís sensational soul duo Gene & Eddie. Also included are the rare sides by Sir Joe, otherwise known as Joe Quarterman, producer/songwriter/artist, who produced and wrote many of the Gene & Eddie sides for Ru-Jac.
The compilation is scheduled for September 2, 2016 release on CD, blue vinyl LP (with download card) and digital.
Emerging from the very active East Coast í60s soul scene, Gene, Eddie and Joe had been in bands and recording from the early part of the decade. They formed, or joined, regional acts with names like The Nightcaps, The Knights, Don Downing, The El Corols and The Maidens, sharing stages with bigger, national artists such as Major Lance, Garnet Mimms, Joe Simon, The Soul Children, and The Emotions.
For all their ambitions, wider, national success never found them, and with only one local chart hit to their name, ďItís So Hard,Ē they eventually all called it quits to pursue other endeavors. However, these restored tracks give us a window onto a time when East Coast doo-wop met the soul explosion and got a little funky as it headed into the early í70s.
Featuring rare photos and extensive liner notes, this is the definitive musical history of Gene & Eddie and Sir Joe Quarterman ó True Enough!
