Soul Survivors - Take Another Look (1969 us, great funky groovy psych. 2013 japan remaster)



The Soul Survivors flamed out quite quickly, but their second album was a superb slice of blue-eyed R'n'B. They could do effective hard-driving dance tunes or decent ballads, and while Gamble and Huff hadn't yet become legends, they provided workmanlike production and arrangements. 

Even though they generate great songs like "Expressway To Your Heart" or "Mama Soul", soon after their second release "Take Another Look" band broke up in 1970.

Although the Ingui brothers eventually performed under the name again, as well as with other groups. Gamble and Huff went on to great fame, producing massive hits by the O’Jays, Billy Paul, Lou Rawls, Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes and many others, and building their label and studio into one of the most important of the era.
