Description
Sammy Campbell, a northern soul icon, was plagued with a tumultuous musical career that left him in relative obscurity-until now. Born May 6th, 1941 in Plainfield, New Jersey, Campbell had made a name for himself as a member of the doo-wop group, the Del-Larks, and also as a solo artist. Campbell produced a number of charting hits, the masters to which were destroyed in a house fire in 1978.

Unfazed, and equipped with only a four-track and primitive drum machine, Campbell began creating some of his most soulful songs to date. These sessions featured Parliament players Eddie Hazel and Billy Spruill on guitar, plus a number of other neighborhood heavyweights. Making music in his spare time, Campbell kept no organization of his tapes, leaving most unmarked and stored away in the attic for nearly thirty years.

This 45 embodies several different musical movements that were coursing through the United States in the late '70s. "Suga, Would Ya" is a mid-tempo love song, resembling a Fender Rhodes-heavy "Groovin'" by the Young Rascals. "Crazy About You" is a prime example of Tri-State soul a la the Main Ingredient, which merges old-school vocal delivery with new school instrumentation, employing primitive synthesizers and vintage drum machines.
