Soul II Soul’s origins, were deep within the underground world of 1970s sound systems, a situation they immersed themselves in, then bust out into the mainstream in a way that was as unchanged as it was completely reinvented.
30 years on, there is probably no more appropriate way to celebrate Soul II Soul than Origins‘ combining of the old school medium with thoroughly modern packaging. Recorded over a weekend in late 2015 at Studio A, at London’s iconic Metropolis Studios, an intimate crowd of 120 witnessed the full force of Soul II Soul’s incredible live show as Jazzie, Caron, and the band, brought their 1989 debut Club Classics Vol.1 to live like never before.
The weekend was captured for the forthcoming release, Origins: The Roots Of Soul II Soul. OUT NOW on Metropolis Recordings, the boxset comes with double 12” vinyl, a USB stick with exclusive video content, with accompanying sleeve notes written by long term band aficionado and biographer, Lloyd Bradley.
This box set really is an up-close look at the musical brilliance that marks Soul II Soul as one of the greatest live bands in history.
