Ralph "Soul" Jackson - Sunshine Of Your Love (Atlantic 2593)

Sunshine Of Your Love

Like I was saying over on The B Side, this record just positively cranks!

A cover of a tune released the year before by one of Atco's new 'rock era' acts, it was produced at Fame by Spooner Oldham, making it like the 'harmonic convergence' of all things Atlantic, or something. Check out the horn charts! I'm not sure if that's a Harrison Calloway arrangement, or if Spooner came up with the idea himself, but get out da way!!

Play this one LOUD children, and dream of a world where Ralph "Soul" Jackson had the top ten hit, not those other guys.
