Ural Thomas biography:-
Thomas was a singer on the rise in the mid- to late-'60s, releasing singles on UNI Records (home to Neil Diamond and Dead Moon precursor group the Lollipop Shoppe) and playing shows with Otis Redding and the Rolling Stones. But after getting run through the music industry wringer, he walked away from the business, returned to his hometown of Portland, and quietly hosted jam sessions out of his home. Enter Magee, a DJ with a deep love of vintage soul and funk, who befriended Thomas and convinced him to get back in the game. With a few years of live performances under their collective belt, Ural Thomas and the Pain finally entered the studio and solidified their frontman's return. And if you've seen the band in concert, you know precisely what you're going to get with this self-titled double LP (out on Mississippi Records): a collection of heartfelt R&B that aims to replicate the glory days of the mid-'60s when labels like Motown and Stax were at their peaks. more @ www.uralthomasandthepain.com



Welcome to the first Science of Soul for 2019, I must apologies for there being no show last week due to some health issues, but it's back to normal now. There is some new music this week from Jermaine Robbins and Mr Taylormade, two artists who I think will come even more to the for front this year, we are dipping into the current albums from Detroit Soulman Chuckola plus the legendary Will Downing who's new album "The Promise" as been very well received. Starting this weeks show is a powerful message from my Brother from another Mother Mr Stan Mosley "People We Gotta Do Better," is a sentiment we can carry into the new year. There are lots of Old Skool gems this week, in particular a couple of real classics from Baltimore sweet soul group The Whatnauts, who did much of there recording up in New Jersey under the guidance of soul music genius Mr George Kerr. OK sit back enjoy and I wish you a New Year filled with peace health and happiness and thank you for your continued support..
