Edwin Starr

Now out on Soul Junction SJ 1007+ Inst
Welcome to this edition of the Science of Soul, pay attention this week to the new release by the Texas soul lady K. Avett, her new single "The Matter (What Are We Here For)" is very special, due for February release I think this is gonna take off so spread the word. Making there Science of Soul debut this week are the ThunderSOUL Orchestra originally from Houston, Texas, these guys are the real deal taking FUNK around the world.I have pulled a track from there album "528 - 0728" highly recommended. The consistently good Cardell is back with a new single aimed squarely at the steppers who can't seem to get enough of this guy .. not hard to see why "Is It Real" will not disappoint. Soul Junction records are just about to issue a single by Robert Montgomery & Chain Reaction "I Need You Girl," I must confess I didn't know this track at all, recorded in 1976 only a thousand copies were produced, and it quickly sank without trace, so it's nice to see it get a reissue, so get it while you can, it's being issued as a 7 inch single and again only a limited number of copies will be available.

Edwin's son receives an award for Dad
January 21st, 2017 would have been the 75th Birthday of a man who played a major roll in my life Edwin Starr, I couldn't even begin to count the miles we traveled, they were amazing days, shared many smiles and many tears and I would not trade those experiences for the world, he left us way to soon. It's only right and proper that we pay tribute to a true UNSUNG soulman and a very dear friend.
Lot's of nice old school classics on this weeks show some you will know well others just might surprise you so sit back and enjoy and please tell a friend about the Science of Soul..

Edwin Starr biography:
Edwin Starr was born Charles Hatcher in Nashville, TN, on January 21, 1942. He grew up in Cleveland and formed a doo wop quintet called the FutureTones while still in high school. They won numerous local talent competitions and even recorded a single for a small label, but Starr was drafted into the military in 1960, stalling the group's momentum. When he returned in 1962, he tried to get things going again, but to no avail; instead, he wound up joining Bill Doggett's group as a featured vocalist in 1963. Two years later, Starr wrote what he felt was a surefire hit in the spy-themed "Agent Double-O-Soul," and left Doggett's band to sign with Ric Tic Records and settle in Detroit. "Agent Double-O-Soul" hit the R&B Top Ten later in 1965, and just missed the pop Top 20. Starr capitalized on the song's novelty appeal by appearing on-stage in a spy costume complete with toy gun, but proved he was no one-trick pony by returning to the Top Ten a year later with "Stop Her on Sight (S.O.S.)."
