ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Soul Survivors began their singing career in New York City as a street corner vocal group known as The Dedications. The early days were spent trying to audition and be heard by record companies and music publishers located in Broadway's famous Brill Building. Eventually, they found their way into the recording studios,landing their own record deal with Bell Records. Their first recording "I Ain't A Bit Sorry" reached the top ten list on New York's popular rhythm and blues radio station WWRL.
After several years of playing various venues in the New York area, they teamed up with a group of instrumentalists and became the band known as The Soul Survivors. As their popularity grew, especially in the Atlantic City - Philadelphia area, they attracted the attention of record producers Kenny Gamble and Loen Huff. Their meeting resulted in the recording of "Expressway To Your Heart". The record was a smash reaching one on all regional charts and number four on Billboard's national chart. Written and produced by Gamble and Huff, it would be that duo's first "crossover" hit and would serve as a cornerstone of what would later become known as "The Sound Of Philadelphia". In polls taken by the Philadelphia Inquirer and Philadelphia's City Paper, "Expressway" was voted the number one record ever to come out of Philadelphia.


"Expressway" was followed by two other chart records, "Explosion In My Soul" and "Mission Impossible". At this time they also released their first album,"When The Whistle Blows". A second LP, "Take Another Look" for Atco Records, was recorded at Atlantic Records' New York studios and in the legendary Fame Studio in Muscle Shoals, Alabama with producer Rick Hall and his famous session musicians which included guitarist Duane Allman, as well as keyboardist Barry Beckett, guitarist Jimmy Johnson, drummer Roger Hawkins, bassist David Hood and, of course, The Memphis Horns. From these sessions came "Mama Soul",a regional hit in many markets including Memphis, Georgia, Connecticut, and Europe.


In 1974, The Soul Survivors reunited with Gamble and Huff to record their self titled album "The Soul Survivors" on TSOP - Philadelphia International Records. A collection of original material, it was written and performed in a style that would define the unique sound of The Soul Survivors.

Through the years, The Soul Survivors have continued to treat audiences to shows packed with authentic rhythm and blues and 60's style soul music. Now in 2004, comes their new CD "Released", combining new material with tracks never before available on CD.

Catch The Soul Survivors in 2004!

KYI Know Yourself, Inc. salutes The Soul Survivors
Everyone has moods that span the breadth of the human heart. Sometimes we can't conjour those moods into place so easily, so people like Charlie and Richie Inqui can come along and quicken our groove on, with a gift they give, called soul.

Here in Flint, MI. we get what your driving at, and we do dwell and chill in your current.

The" Philly sound" is back
The Philly Sound is back. Smooth, sexy, husky sounding vocals. Track 10, BEEDO is my favorite. Makes me want to sing with the backup singers.

Great mixes: clean, sweet, punchy, tight, kicking, and optimistic, fill of emotion. I love the whole thing. These guys did good and each cut has something special.
Great arrangement on Close Your Eyes and the response vocals on Matters of the heart are just two examples of how this CD just slays me. The lead vocals on Matters of the Heart remind me of Curtis Mayfield. I thought that no one would ever be able to come close to the pure rhythmic emotion and truth that Curtis brought until I heard this cut.
God has shown his creative energy in the Ingui Brothers voices and the love came through to my ears.
If you dig real Philadelphia R&B then this CD is a must have.

Blue eyed soul at it's best
This cd is blue-eyed soul at its best. These guys are amazing singers and some soulful motherf?&7&&&s! The songs are all great. No one knows "Matters of the Heart" better than the Soul Survivors.

Marilyn Cantor

Perfect in everyway
It takes me back to the smooth sounding harmonies that over the years we seemed to have lost. I find this music to be relaxing, comforting and easy to "groove" on.........I enjoy it very much! I hope to hear much more of the Soul Survivors
