Jeffree (Jeff) Perry – Love Don’t Come No Stronger (1975)

April 22, 2017

Jeffree (Jeff) Perry is a true ‘hidden gem’ of soul music. His uncle, Robert Bateman, was one of the early engineer/producers at Motown, and by 12 yrs old Jeff was singing with his brothers on Atlantic records as the Perry Brothers.

Jeffree himself went on to work at Motown and became a close friend of Marvin Gaye. He launched his solo career on Arista Records and this track, ‘Love Don’t Come No Stronger’, was not only the label’s first R&B hit but stands as a masterpiece of soul music that simply never received the attention it deserved.
