Gio, do you have any idea what record label published the recordings of the Detroit Emeralds? I can't quite make out the logo on the album cover.

Thanks for posting these. Makes me proud of my Detroit heritage.

Hello, Gio. I like this one.
**********************************************

There's a Love For Me Somewhere by Detroit Emeralds

There's a love for me somewhere
There's a sweet little girl who really cares
She gonna* help me when I'm all alone
Gonna* to stick beside me, make a happy home
I won't have to worry, when I leave her alone
I'll be secure, I'll know it's cool every time I'm gone

I know she loves me. She loves me, I know
I know she needs me. She gonna tell me so
It makes no difference what people think
She only listens to me anyway
I know, I know, I know, I know

There's a love for me somewhere
And it just might take me twenty years
But I've got to find her. Don't care how long
We'll both be happy when she's in my arms
A good life we'll live. We're gonna be in love
She'll give me everything in life I've been dreaming of

I know she loves me. She loves me, I know
I know she needs me. She gonna tell me so
It makes no difference what people think
She only listens to me anyway

I'll take her with me everywhere I go
She'll tell the people we love each other so
She'll only love me, nobody else,
But she can give me...**

*Dialect note: "She gonna" means "she is going to"
**(fades away, can't hear it)

And this:
"- The Detroit Emeralds
- 1971
- Westbound (catalog number W 209)
- Little Rock, Arkansas

- A side: 'Feel the Need In Me' (Abrim Tilman) - 3:21
- A side chart position: # 110 pop; # 22 R&B
- A side: 'There's a Love for Me Somewhere' (Abrim Tilman) - 2:33
- B side chart position: none
- Parent LP: You Want It, You Got It - Westbound WB 201

"I've always been a Detroit Emeralds fan, due in large part to the fact they were a surprisingly funky vocal outfit. The 'A" side was one of their best performances. With Abrim Tilman turning in his best Al Green impression, this one literally sounded like an outtake from some Willie Mitchell-produced Hi recording sessions. Major lost classic.   rating: **** stars. Though it opened up with some tasty guitar, the flip side wasn't nearly as good. A much more conventional mid-tempo song, the group sung vocal was pretty week and the heavy orchestration just served to underscore the fact the song wasn't particularly strong. rating: ** stars.." http://badcatrecords.com/BadCat/AA_45s.htm
