The Mainstream family of labels was a major source of black music through the early and mid-70s. Owner Bob Shad was primarily a jazz producer but had enough nous and appreciation of soul music to go with current trends. His in-house arrangers included veteran hit-maker Bert DeCoteaux, fellow jazzer Wade Marcus and the up-and-coming Patrick Adams.Adams' production on Chapter Three's ‘I'll Never Be The Same' is soul with an early disco beat, and Chocolate Syrup's uptempo ‘You've Got A Lot To Give' is of a similar ilk.
