Just seven singles and two LP's made Darrell Banks a revered figure among Northern and deep soul fans alike. Open the door to your heart of course was his claim to fame on the mainstream of soul music - a #2 R&B hit. But his first four Revilot and Atco singles, contained in his Atco LP, were all (A or B sides) - Northern Soul timeless gems: Our love is in the pocket, Somebody somewhere needs you, I've got that feelin' and Angel baby (don't you ever leave me). The Volt stuff on the other hand contains some of the deepest soul ever recorded, a winning combination of Detroit and Memphis styles, supervised by Don Davis. Forgive me, Just because your love is gone, Don't know what to do, Beautiful feeling, I could never hate her - what an album. It is now available on the amazing Don Davis Presents the Sound of Detroit CD . Read about it on the reviews page.
Tragically Darrell Banks was shot to death in 1970. As with Sam Cooke and Otis, there's that big question of what would he have done had he lived, and what wonderful music we were robbed of.
