In addition to the inclusion on the "Movements Vol.10" double-gatefold LP we felt that a release of The Headliners' "Little Sister (Sho Nuf Fine)" on our beloved 45rpm single format is more than justified.
Walt Maddox, owner of the Super M label on which "Little Sister" was released, started singing as a teenager on the street corners of his Manchester neighborhood on Pittsburgh's Northside. In 1961 he joined The Marcels. In the following years they released three full length albums and numerous hit singles with sales in the millions. Maddox sang with the group through its many permutations for four decades before becoming its manager and producer in 1999.
Maddox produced The Headliners sole single which has become a sought after collectors item on the Northern Soul/Funk scene in recent years.
