Welcome to the new dedicated website for MD Records, we started this site so that we can get information about our new releases and other records and merchandise to you all as fast as possible!
Firstly we would like to thank all of you for the support and love that has been shown to the label, for us it just serves to validate the fantastic music that was recorded by fabulous musicians, songwriters and label owners that never saw the light of day.
If you want to make sure that you never miss the news hot of the press from us, whether it be New MD Records Releases, our Record store deals, buying trip special record lists (always with front page specials) or any other MD record Group Ltd info, then sign up with your email address here…
We will be making sure that everyone who signs up gets new release 48 hours before we go public on any other social media. So its got to be worth it for that! This will also go for the sales lists on our return from buying trips either here in the UK or abroad, so don’t miss out – you owe it to yourself.
All the best MarknDes
Ben Aiken – Hurry On Home – Roulette
Only 1 left in stock
Benjamin F. Aiken was born in Philadelphia, training as a barber in the family business, but was also fascinated by music from an early age and took up the guitar to accompany his smooth tenor voice. Ben and Gilbert, along with another brother, Joseph, joined fellow singers Gene Drew and Wallace Millsaps to form the gospel group Welcome Travelers. The group switched to rhythm and blues, and Ben released 45’s in the 1960’s and early 1970’s on “Squire” records, “Roulette” records, “Loma” records and “Philly Groove” records. Ben sadly died on 27th October, 2009. This disc has light, superficial wear to the label and vinyl, conservatively graded between VG+ and VG++ condition, worth checking out the flip too
