A 22 year young Brian E Downey here so precise on these really sophisticated fills and rolls, at the same time so loose and in the back pocket at all times after only three years of playing the drums at all – really creating a testament to the Motown style in this recording ! Lucky him his fabulous singer performer musician wife #PattiHall introduced him into the Detroit scene!
If you have noticed other Detroit or Chicago recordings with Brian E. Downey on the drums please let us know – this is however the only vinyl that survived in his household!
