Hailing from Mall Creek, Mississippi, G.C. Cameron rose to fame at 22
years of age, when he joined Motown Records to become lead singer of The
Spinners. After a string of well received releases, including
chartbuster ‘It’s A Shame’, co-written and produced by Stevie Wonder,
Cameron left The Spinners to pursue a solo career.
It was a trip to Fantasy Studios, San Francisco in 1977, where Cameron
teamed up with Harvey Faqua, Greg Crockett and Elgie Stover to realise
what is arguably his finest work. A full album was recorded, but only
two tracks saw the light of day, via the short-lived UK label, Flamingo.
Soundway’s Live for Love release comprises the two in-demand cuts
previously released on Flamingo - the deep and dubby disco-workout ‘If I
Love You (Instrumental)’ and soul drenched ballad ‘Live For Love’,
coupled with two unreleased recordings rescued from the abyss after 45
years of collecting dust. The modern-soul-dancer ‘Thank You Baby’,
backed by Jeanie Tracy and Martha Walsh, is a jewel that displays
Cameron’s full range whilst the vocal to ‘If I Love You’ elevates the
recording to dance-floor-ready.
