SOFT SOUL TRANSITION - S.S.T. (TRANSITION 1970) Jap/Kor mastering cardboard sleeve + 7 bonus




Not SST as in the LA hardcore label, or the sound of a jet – but SST, as in Soft Soul Transition, a very groovy group with a Sunshine Pop sort of sound! The trio has some wonderful harmonies in their music – echoes of more familiar pop of the late 60s, but presented here in a cool, stripped-down sort of way – with a quality that's similar to some of the best work by Roger Nichols & The Small Circle Of Friends – intimate enough to get past some of the more commercial modes of the time. Many cuts are originals by the group – and singer Chris Demilo plays a lot of great keyboards on the grooves – creating a wicked sound that would have been right at home in the A&M scene of the late 60s. Titles include "Gotta Move Along", "Soft Soul Transition", "Put Love First", "Don't Turn On Me", "It's Love", "Happy With You Girl", and "Lights Of Freedom". CD features 7 bonus tracks too – including "Dreamweaver", "Banyan Bay"...

Hi GEORGIE. I'm gonna try this one since it's listed in Volume 1 of Musica Loco Mundo in the "Brasilian tastes from other country" section of the book. It's listed next to records like "Conversations With The Silhouettes" for example. I'll pray that this record might be as good as that one.
