“Body And Soul” by The Soul Generation (1973)

Here’s one of those dusty slow jams that I would never have heard if my folks didn’t have a kick ass collection of 45s (that they gave me free rein to mess with) in my childhood.

Suffice it to say that when “Body & Soul” was released in 1973, there was no shortage of male harmony groups floating around the musical stratosphere. Being on a small indie label (Ebony Sounds) couldn’t have helped their cause. “Body & Soul” only peaked at #27 on Billboard’s soul charts. Should’ve done much better. The vocal harmonies and production are as on point as any Delfonics or Main Ingredient record. According to the scant information I can find on the internet, the group is still together, although I doubt too many original members are involved these days. Still, a great one-shot (if you can even call it that) from the glory days of sumptuous orchestrated R&B. Quiet storm before the actual invention of quiet storm.
