Soul List

Hodges, James & Smith were originally known as Hodges, James, Smith & Crawford (former Motown artist Carolyn(Caroline)Crawford).They later became a trio..Pat Hodges, Denita James & Jessica Smith... all originating from Los Angeles. Denita James had a solo single on Flip around '63 and Pat Hodges had a solo release Keymen around '66. The group was the brainchild of William "Micky" Stevenson and they were intended to rival The Supremes which is hard to believe because H, J & S's sound was more aggressive and a lot more Soul/R&B oriented. Their first single was 'Nobody' on the Mpingo Label(previously a hit for Kim Weston on MGM). They updated it later for one of their 20th Century albums in the 70s. So there are two versions released by them.

Not sure about James Brown owning the label. Mickey Stevenson was certainly involved with a People label as Kim Weston was on it too. I think though that JB's People productions had a different numbering system so there could have been two labels with the same name.
