DON'T FUCK AROUND WITH LOVE * THE BLENDERS * EBONY * UK
The Blenders first recorded for the National label in 1949, they then recorded for Decca between 1950 and 1952, they then had two releases for MGM in the spring and summer of 1953, then in September 1953 Joe Davis released Don't Play Around With Love on his Jay-Dee imprint. Don't Fuck Around with love was recorded at the same session (March 53) as Joe Davis wanted to send it to deejays as a private recording. Don't Play Around With Love was the groups most successful record, after which they took two years before following up with the beautiful ballad Somebody's Lying under the name The Millionaires on Davis 441 in 1956. The above was first put out on 'commercial' release in 1971 in the US on Kelway 101, Joe Davis then released it on his label, and the above British release was issued shortly after.
