Please Be Truthful


Family of Eve's reputation has blown up in recent years, but their original records for the tiny Jeree Records were released to no acclaim in 1980. The Pittsburgh group was produced by the equally obscure Don Garvin and virtually ignored in the United States. Their signature tune "I Wanna Be Loved By You" straddles the line between funk and disco and gained a second life among British specialists as the rare groove movement took off in the 1980s. Even then, repressings on Full Sail were hard to come by. Family of Eve received their first large scale exposure courtesy of BBE, who included "Loved By You" on Keb Darge's Legendary Deep Funk, Vol. 1 and Disco Spectrum 1, complete with new edits and mixes. The jazzy female-led "Please Be Truthful" has acquired a whole new audience as well, leading to a full-fledged run on their 45s, which are now selling for hundreds of dollars. I hope they are getting at least a cut of the profits.
