Until last year there had only been a handful of known copies of this incredible early-80’s glorious mid-tempo 45 and copies were changing hands for between £1000 to £2000. Luckily they were all owned by such prestigious DJ’s such as Soul Sam, Butch and Keb Darge, DJ’s that had the power to break tracks such as these on the knowledgable Soulful dancefloors of the UK. The owners of Lotus Land records in the US (Andy and Tom Noble) managed to track down Halo and last year, at last, everyone had an opportunity of owning this record on their label. Greg Coleman, Karvin Johnson and James King Jr. are three true ‘gentlemen’ of the industry. Shortly they will releasing 6 previously unissued tracks that should have been on their debut album – entitled ‘Halo – Now And Then’ and they will be back in the studio soon to record songs that they wrote at that time for the project 30 years ago.
We’ll keep you updated on the progress but meanwhile please read, for the first time, the history of HALO.
