These songs, found on reels that Marks kept in his
home, color Marks' stylistic development - from his
earliest work for the legendary Tuska label in the late
'60s, through his more mature releases on smaller
regional labels into the late '70s.
Marks' story is that of an unsung soul and funk hero; he
was a guitarist, vocalist and songwriter whose phone
number was in Al Green's, Barry White's and Eddie
Kendricks' rolodexes, but his talents have only been
heard in sporadic bursts. He and his music are
unknown to the majority, but to an obsessive
minority, he is a lightning rod: that singular point at
which numerous Southern soul and funk musicians
converged and exploded, spreading wondrous music in
all directions.
Marks died of cancer in May 2006. His first album was
our Never Satisfied anthology, released posthumously.
He stands out as a most mysterious talent to originate
from Atlanta, a city that birthed no shortage of genius,
and Love Is Gone: The Lost Sessions 1969-1977 further
makes the case for a reassessment of his talents and his
place in the soul and funk canon.
