    It was one of the "non-Motown" albums that he cut with Earl King, either as the Soul Brothers or as the Twistin' Kings.

    Hi Big Wheel & JazzBo,


    Yes it was on a 1969 album by Earl Van Dyke and the Soul (gordy would not let them use the name "Funk Brothers") Brothers. Nick Hoorweg wrote (on my web discussion group) regarding a CD that contains Fever...:

    "as far as i know its only avaiable on a cd from the series called "Motown year by year - the sound of young america" and its on the disc that has stuff from 1969."

    This would be a recent set that still may be in print. I would plug it into an online music sales site and see if it is available. BTW, I am on vacation on the east coast so that is why it is taking some time to get to things on the net (Like the rest of the Fever... transcription) If I put it out I want to make sure it is right!

    My understanding is that this came about because of all the "extra-curricular" playing that the Funk Brothers were doing. SITSOM plays up the idea that the Funk Brothers enjoyed their jobs, but it wasn't really the type of music they would play on their own, therefore they needed an outlet, and so you got......
