Thanks for visiting The Science of Soul, on this weeks show I will be featuring the new album release from Soul Junction records "Getting Kinda Soulful" by The Holidays, made up of tracks from predominantly the early to mid 1970s this is a real gem, some of you will be aware of many of the tracks on this set but its a great to have them all in one spot and an added bonus of some never before issued tracks. It's a must for real collectors well done to Dave Weldon and the Soul Junction team. This CD wont be around for to long so be sure to get a copy whilst it's available you won't regret it.
New and current releases this week Chairman of The Board ft. Ken Knox, Ken is truly one of the nice guys in the industry and they are currently working on a new album, I can't wait.

Laura Lee & Me
Former member of Harold Melvin & The Bluenotes Jerry Cummings as been digging into the volts and come up with a classic solo recording from his time with the group "It's My Pleasure" it's amazing that this was never released back in the day, when you hear it you will know what I mean .. Steppers favourite Sarah Lesol is doing great with her latest outing "My Everything" played it a few weeks back but I thought i'd remind you how good it is, Southern Soul man Joe Cable as new product as does Cupid and listen out for Jazzy D ft Kenya. Plenty of stuff for the old school lovers even some tracks you just might have forgotten, So sit back and enjoy.

The Holidays biography:
The Holidays were a Detroit group who are remembered for a record, "I'll Love You Forever," (1966) that their members didn't even appear on. Edwin Starr sang lead and J.J. Barnes and Steve Mancha supplied backing vocals, and some say that Eddie Anderson made the session too. When the record hit, producer Don Davis revitalized the Holidays with new members to capitalize on the song's success. Starr, Barnes, and Mancha never performed as the Holidays. The original Four Holidays began as the Fresandos, who cut "Your Last Goodbye" on Star-X Records in 1959. Renaming themselves the Four Holidays, they did "Deep in My Heart" in 1961 on Master Records. Jimmy Holland, Jimmy Ruffin, and possibly the Barksdale brothers (Cleo, Robert, and James Mitchell) were the other members; all may have sang with the group at one time or another, with one bouncing in as another bounced out.
