WITH YOUR LOVE, WITH YOUR KISS B/W BE MINE ALL MINE
THIRD MAN RECORDS
this early rock and roll artist was one of the few to emerge from Detroit, and these tracks deserve to be remembered for their sizzling attack and soulful vivacity.
Releasing his first songs with the fantastic Detroit label Fortune Records, Powers was determined to be signed to Sun Records after wearing out his copies of Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley singles. His sole release on Sun, titled “With Your Love, With Your Kiss” b/w “Be Mine, All Mine”, this is now a highly collectible piece. The A-side is powerful and intense, with popping snare, blaring saxophone in the bridge and an impassioned Powers wailing all over the track. The B-side is more of a boogie rocker with an absolutely unforgettable falsetto vocal melody in each post-chorus. This nugget of early rock history is not to be missed.
