The wonderfully talented G.C. Cameron, who has been credited with having six different voices, joined The Spinners at Motown in time to sing lead on the original version of this classic hit song, "It's A Shame". When The Spinners left Motown to join Atlantic Records in 1971, G.C. remained with the company as a solo artist, enjoying five single releases on Motown's West Coast label, Mowest, and then eight more singles on the Motown label itself, including a duet with Syreeta, "Lets Make A Deal". There were also three albums released by Motown. Being married to Berry Gordy's sister, Gwen, made G.C. an important member of the Motown family. Since leaving Motown, G.C. released a much respected album on the Malaco label, and a much loved independant single on Paul Mooney's Ardent label, before recording for Motorcity between 1989 and 1992. In 1989 he topped the bill of our TV show in Detroit, in conjunction with Kelly and Company. G.C. released four singles on Motorcity, this one, our remake of his Spinners classic "It's A Shame", followed by "Good Times Up Ahead", "No Need To Explain" and his duet with Martha Reeves, "You're All I Need To Get By", and we also released two albums, "Right Or Wrong", and "The Best Of G.C. Cameron". A truly marvellous talent.
