Much is said in the mainstream media about million selling records, yet the opposite is true of the no-hitters the obscurities that sold badly and sank without a trace. Represented here is the bittersweet experience of a hard working soul band that experienced the elation of a million selling chart-topper (1965's Searching for My Love), but also the dejection of a self-released flop that sold so few copies that barely a handful can still be found. The 1976 album Dedication of Love by Bobby Moore & The Rhythm Aces is that flop, and it exists in 2015 as only a handful of copies, selling for up to $2000 on the highly competitive rare soul market. This is it's first ever reissue. From Jazzman's exclusive interviews with long-standing band member Bobby Moore Jr., this reissue's detailed liner notes tell the story of Bobby Moore & The Rhythm Aces from inception through 2015, including all the highs and lows that membership of a touring soul band can bring, as well as some spectacular, previously unseen vintage photos. The notes dig deep to find out just why this record was made, and why, despite such a wonderful array of heartfelt soul, street funk, and downhome funky blues, it became such a rarity. Part of the Jazzman Holy Grail Series.
