and the Soul Brothers became The Tamla Motown orchestra / backing musicians (See also Choker Campbell). Before receiving their rather elegant name, the group had been known as The Funk Brothers but as Berry Gordon always tried to give Motown a sophisticated image they were ‘rebranded’.

Earl Van Dyke produced a fabulous, organ sound – Too Many Fish In The Sea being a good example of his style. “All For You” was a massive instrumental hugely popular at The Twisted Wheel.

On our first Soul Mod scene our top Van Dyke 45 was “All For You” but its “Six By Six” that makes it at 192 on the Kev Roberts Top 500 of Northern Soul.
