After recording the first three songs together as a group, the newly formed Soul Children performed seven other Isaac Hayesand David Porter penned tunes and put out an album. I feel it was the combination of these four singers and the Hayes /Porter tunes that made the magic. Once Hayes left the stable to concentrate on his own legendary solo career, I feel the group never recovered. This first CD is a classic and IMHO nothing else the group did came close.
When Tomorrow Comes – Soul Children (1968)
My Baby Specializes – Soul Children (1968)
These are a few more of those wonderful Hayes/Porter tunes penned to complete the “Soul Children” debut album. It was so very hard not to share the entire LP because there is not a single bad song included — guaranteed! (Please go out and make this purchase.) But I have included in this post one ballad and one up-tempo funkster so that you can hear how the “Soul Children” were adept at singing both and Hayes/Porter were Masters at composing both types of songs.
I hope you enjoyed the music.
Thanks for stopping by.
