Not a whole lot is known about Eramus Hall, a soul band from Detroit.  Rumor has it that George Clinton was involved with their development, but those facts have been difficult to confirm.  They're best known for Your Love Is My Desire, an album recorded in 1978 that remained unreleased for two years.  When the LP did see the light of day in 1980, quantities were so limited that many people doubted the record had ever been issued.

Needless to say, Your Love was not a big seller in its day.  International interest in the groove cuts "She Shined A Light" and "Funk Permit" caused demand for this album to skyrocket throughout the 80s and 90s, and it was finally reissued in 2001 by Southbound. They recorded a second LP in the mid 80s that is most notable for the presence of several members of P-Funk, lending credence to the rumor that they were an affiliate of Clinton's would-be empire.

Eramus Hall's Deepest Grooves

Your Love Is My Desire (Westbound, 1980)
This is the kind of record that defines rare groove. Described by some as a cross between Donald Byrd's commercial efforts and traditional Detroit soul, you can expect to pay a pretty penny should you find an original copy.  Worth having for the sample-able title cut and "She Shined A Light."

Go Head (Capitol, 1984)
