Masters of Soul - Sad Face - Ovide

70s SoulPosted by Martin Wed, July 06, 2011 18:42:43

The Masters of Soul consisted of Eddie Webb, Fred Kibble, Harold Hopkins, Clarence Bellard and Tom McPherson. They made their debut for Philadelphia based Guyden records in 1963 as The Royal Masters, but only had one release on the label. Their Guyden release went nowhere and it was to be five years before the group cut another record. By 1968 original member Jerry Porter had been replaced by Tom McPherson and the group changed their name to Masters of Houston. They were also signed to Ovide records, a Houston based record company owned by Skipper Lee. The new name only lasted for one single though, their 1968 Ovided debut "Please Wait For Me (My Darling)". For the remaining five records they cut on Ovide, and also the tracks that they later recorded for Capitol and Duke records, they used Masters Of Soul. This 45 is from 1970 and was pointed out to me by Soul man and all around great guy Magnus Räms. Enjoy!

"Sad Face"
