100% Pure Poison - You Keep Coming Back - EMI

70s SoulPosted by Martin Fri, March 27, 2009 09:17:14

Nine american servicemen stationed in Germany and who used forged passes to duck out of their armybase to secure a record deal. It is as good a story as you are likely to find. The members of 100% Pure Poison managed to get signed to the major label EMI and had their only album "Coming Right At You" released in 1974. They even had this single made to promote the album. To the best of my knowledge both the album and the single were only released in Europe, and both sadly sunk without a trace. They got their recognition later though when the rare soul scene in the U.K. picked up on the track and made it a modern soul classic within their community.

"You Keep Coming Back"
