Anthony’s Music Scores-

Feat: Dee Edwards

(Why Can't There Be Love)

I am forever exposed to a very wide genre range of new music that transits through my ears, some stick & and others go in one ear & right out the other. It is the ones that stick in my ears & resonate so strong that I feel an overwhelming responsibility

to take a piece and pass it on

to expose the artist, with hopes it resonates with your JuJu.

Deeming them:

Today's Score

Dee Edwards

-Why can't there be love-

(!971)

Her career took off after moving to Detroit in the 1960s from her birthplace of Montgomery, Alabama, Dee Edwards released her first song together with her three brothers as R&B vocal group The Paragons. “My Time Is Important To Me” was mainly a local hit, but it led to her brothers being signed as a solo act to the new Detroit soul label D-Town. Which was actually named after her by founder Mike Hanks. “You Say You Love Me (And Need Me)” was her official debut single.

Soon after her deep soul debut, she shifted to a more cheerful, Motown-inspired approach with tracks such as “Oh What A Party” and “His Majesty, My Love.” Another track in that same line is the upbeat “All The Way Home”, loved as a cult classic amongst Northern Soul fans. But around these singles from 1964 to 1966, there was still no full album

by miss Edwards in sight…

She took a break from music for five years to focus on her family, it took all the way until 1979 before releasing her very first album,

one of her only two LPs

It scored a few minor hits. But shortly after, Dee Edwards retired from music once and for all to fully focus on her children.


Her own words in

"Why Can't There Be Love"

sounds ambiguous now:

“It's time for you to wake up and hear my strong appeal.”

Let's hope producers will continue to do so

 

The Score I bring you today

Is a fine example of the sound that is the heart and soul of Detroit


“Why Can’t There Be Love”
