Official reissue of Bernard Purdie's long time out of print 1972 classic 'Soul Is... Pretty Purdie'. The album (featuring an all-star line up of guest musicians) is a fantastic mix of Purdie's own material and cover versions of classics by Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye and Bill Withers. The rhythm section, wah-wah guitars and growling horns constantly supply the funk for this uber funky jam while a probing bass and Pretty Purdie's trademark beat helps showcase his considerable talents on this career defining album. Purdie's rasping, worldweary vocal which is full of hurt and hope lifts the album up to unseen heights. Washes of dramatic Hammond organ, stabs of keyboards and pounding drums grab your attention. It's as if Pretty Purdie's all-stars are determined to surpass everything thats gone before. Melodic and joyous, you can't help lose yourself in a band at the top of their game. Originally released on Flying Dutchman Records in 1972, now back available as a limited deluxe 180 gram vinyl edition (1500 copies) packaged in a gatefold jacket featuring the original artwork.
