Back By Demand by The Soulful Strings

Produced by Richard Evans (1969 Cadet Records)

Arranged by Richard Evans

My first experience of The Soulful Strings was hearing their version of "Listen Here" on a Cadet Compilation album called "Respect". This version of Eddie Harris's classic is my favorite version. It is just too damn funky for words. I was surprised to find out that it came from a live album. "Back By Demand: In Concert" has a slightly faux feel as some of the tracks were obviously recorded in the studio. Never the less, this is a groovin' album and a great set. So Enjoy.

Recorded: November 6th & 7th at The London House, Chicago
