Smooth Sailing: Summer Songs & Seventies Soul

Enjoy a new Smooth Sailing trip! The tracks by Creative Source and Debbie Taylor are from a recent compilation album, called 'Step inside my soul'. It contains a host of wonderful rare soul tracks that mostly appeared as one-sided promo singles on Polydor, around 1975. The singles were sent to local dj's, but their power was fading at that time, in favour of national radio. Because of this failing business model the songs dropped into obscurity, amidst the bigger acts on the label. Bear Family (Cree) Records rediscovered these gems and put them together.
