Luther Are Good For The Soul

David Nathan, Blues & Soul, June 1976

2008 introduction: "Luther are three girls and two guys whose debut single for Cotillion is attracting a lot of attention. They are not headliners yet, but they've been putting in a lot of ground work on building a solid reputation..."
