The Soul Majestics - Missing You - Al-Tog

70s SoulPosted by Martin Wed, September 15, 2010 21:49:25

Apart from Detroit, Chicago was problably the city that the strongest independent soul music business in the 1960s and early 1970s. A myriad of small lables cropped up tying to steal some of the Motown thunder that was high in the charts all over the U.S. in the mid 60s. Very few succeded however, but it has left us a rich legacy of great soul music that has (until now) been undervalued and under appreciated. The Soul Majestics were Vandy Hampton (who later recorded with The Chi-Lites), Dean Willams (later of Heaven & Earth) and other, to me, unknown members. They cut this record orginally for the Chicago Music bag label, but it was re-released on Al-Tog records in 1972. The group cut one more 45 for Al-Tog before disbanding called "Time And Time Again". Enjoy!
"Missing You"
