Sammy Campbell on Truth & Soul

Sammy Campbell in New Jersey April 2005

I have been meaning to mention that Sammy Campbell lead singer of the Del Larks has been working on an exciting project with Truth & Soul.

Sammy left the Del Larks and began performing as Tyrone Ashley and the Funky Music Machine from the mid-‘60s to the mid-‘70s. Most of the sides recorded between 1968 and 1972 were never released and Truth & Soul have now acquired the masters.

He had one 45 on Phil-La-Of Soul entitled "I Want My Baby Back" and released one single on Black Top Records by Black Velvet, Is It Me You Really Love/ An Earthquake's coming, which Truth & Soul recently re-mixed and re-masted for a 12" release.

In February of 2007, Truth & Soul plan to release a full-length compilation of Sammy's unissued sides.

Check out the Truth & Soul Blog for sound clips of the forthcoming project.
