YOUR EYES MAY SHINE * THE SHORT KUTS * UNITED ARTISTS 2233 * UK
Searching the internet for information on the Short Kuts I find them grouped in with Memphis Garage bands, and that they were/are popular with Northern Soul fans. The fact that the recording has a lot to do with Memphis is evident on the record itself: the song was written by Hays / Porter a.k.a. the Soul Children. Isaac Hays - Eddie Harrison is sited as forming his first group with Isaac Hays in 1961 - and Eddie Porter were, at the time, two of the biggest names associated with the Memphis Soul scene and particularly Stax Records; back then the first name in Southern Soul, the label also refers to it being an original Pepper release USA, which was another Memphis based label.
