Stuck On Repeat: Bob & Gene And The Buffalo Soul Scene

Dec 11th, 2006 // 1 Comment

bobandgene.jpgHere’s the story behind what is undoubtedly one of the coolest press photos of all time: In 1967, Bobby Nunn and Eugene Copeland were two Buffalo teenagers with a love of deep soul and an unlikely music-biz connection; Nunn’s father, William, was a club owner and musical impressario around Buffalo, and it was in his basement studio that the young duo took the name Bob & Gene and recorded the amazing “You Gave Me Love” b/w “Your Name” single. Daptone Records will finally release a full Bob & Gene album, If This World Were Mine…, in February, forty years after the original recording sessions. You can get a 45 of “You Gave Me Love”/”Your Name” on the Daptone website now, and we highly recommend pre-ordering This World this very minute:
