I hope this Tuesday finds you well and in good spirits. Today has been one of the first days of the year that the sun has been out here in Belfast in what has been a bit of a Spring-like day (even though it’s technically British Summer Time) so with that tenuous link, I bring you this week’s selection entitled “Soul At Sunrise”
Ronnie, Norman & Earl were 3 guys who came together to record this rather obscure instrumental groove on the (equally obscure) Volare label out of Philadelphia. I believe this 1970 release to be the only record they cut under this name but Ronnie Baker, Norman Harris and Earl Young did find some fame when they joined forces together as part of MSFB – the instrumental group best known for supplying the theme music to iconic tv show “Soul Train” (titled “TSOP”). That’s about all I know about the guys which is to be expected given the rarity of this particular release. I’m sure you will all dig it anyhow!
Just before I go, I hope to have another Guest Contributor to bring you pretty soon and I will also have exciting news of a new club night that I’ll be hosting in the coming months. Stay tuned!
