The 20th volume of the flagship 'Eccentric Soul' series has all the boxes checked: Gun-toting, skip-tracing record producers, child stars, rip-offs, the 'World's Greatest Bail Bondsman,' swindles, soaring falsettos, and a dwindling rust-belt cityscape offering mere glimpses of hope before the record industry escaped for the coasts. Helmed by the O'Jays Bobby Massey, Saru was a creative vortex that pulled Cuyahoga County's greatest talent in, making a strong case for Cleveland to contend with Detroit, Philly, and Memphis as America's soul music's capital.
