Johnnie Mae Mathews is fondly referred to as being 'The Godmother of Detroit Soul', as she was responsible for creating at least 8 different Detroit record labels and for discovering and nurturing many future Motown artists in their early years. In fact she was a major source of inspiration for the young Berry Gordy, founder of Motown. We are delighted to finally be releasing what many people consider to be the pinnacle of independent Detroit soul music, the impeccable and gut-wrenching 'I Have No Choice', the defining record of Johnnie Mae Mathews along with the equally impressive 'That's When It Hurts' on the flip. 'I Have No Choice' is a record that has finally hit the heights it always deserved after being a cult record for almost 50 years and is now commanding a staggering £1200-£1500 for a decent original copy for those lucky enough to be in that league. This release includes comprehensive notes and photos from Johnnie Mae Mathews expert Richard Gilbert. If you're a Soul music fan, then this record is indispensable. Full picture sleeve featuring Johnny herself in full swing, with liner notes, and fully remastered, heavyweight vinyl 45.Tracklisting:A. I Have No ChoiceB. That's When It Hurts
