Nolan Strong - Mind Over Matter (I'm Gonna Make You Mine)
Devora Brown was known for running the small Detroit based Fortune Records with her husband Jack. While big Detroit bro Motown were known for their their polished pop sounds, Fortune were known for their raunch. Stars on the label were Andre Williams, Nolan Strong and the Diablos and the late, great Nathaniel Mayer.
As many songs from the Fortune songbook “Mind Over Matter” was written by Devora Brown herself. She did a fine job. As did Mr. Strong and the Diablos singing the tune. That was also noticed by Motown boss Berry Gordy who talked the Pirates (who were actually the Temptations) into covering the song on his new label Melody Records. The Upper Shelves prefer Nolan’s raunchy version over the polished Pirates version.
The Upper Shelves are hottest DJ collective of the Netherlands. Or at least as hot as the wax they are spinning. Guaranteed all killer, no filler! In a country with more DJs than civil servants that's saying something!
The Upper Shelves come with one promise, we’ll burn up your dance floor with the power of the 45! Though we have been known to sneak in a vinyl LP once in a great while.
Garage, Soul, R&B and Rock & Roll is our degree, with the occasional curve ball thrown in for good measure. We’ll bring you all the great hits, including the ones you forgot.
This Blog will give you an impression of our greatness, or should I say the mind blowing power of the 45. To be honest, we just drop the needle on them.
This blog is intended primarily for promotional use. We feel this music deserves to be spread around and we encourage everybody visiting to go out and buy it. Preferably on 45, but we do not look down on the convenience of getting a CD. If in any way you feel we are violating your copy right by our posts, let us know, we’ll glad to oblige by taking the post in question down.
