Much is said in the mainstream media about million-selling records, yet the opposite is true of the no-hitters - the obscurities that sold badly and which sank without a trace. This is the bittersweet experience of a hard-working soul band that experienced the elation of a million-selling chart-topper – but also the dejection of a self-released flop that sold so few copies that barely a handful can be traced to this day. The 1976 album 'Dedication of Love ' by Bobby Moore & the Rhythm Aces is that flop - and is known today in just a handful of copies, selling for up to $2000 on the highly-competitive rare soul market. 

From our exclusive interviews with long-standing band member Bobby Moore Jr, our detailed liner notes tell the story of Bobby Moore & the Rhythm Aces from inception to present day. We present all the highs and lows that membership of a touring soul band can bring, and we publish some spectacular previously-unseen vintage photos for the very first time. We dig deep to find out just why this record was made, and ask why, despite such a wonderful array of heartfelt soul, street funk and downhome funky blues, it is such a coveted rarity today.

Part of the Jazzman Holy Grail Series. Limited numbered vinyl edition with insert, only 1000 pressed.
