Official reissue of Mr. Purdie’s classic Soul Is... Pretty Purdie (1972).

Vinyl, 1 LP – Gatefold jacket, Orchid colored vinyl exclusively for Rappcats, limited to 100 copies. 

Featuring an all-star line up of guest musicians, the album is a fantastic mix of Purdie’s own material and cover versions of classics by Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye & Bill Withers. The rhythm section, wah-wah guitars and growling horns constantly supply the funk, while a probing bass and Pretty Purdie’s trademark beat helps showcase his considerable talents on this career defining album. Purdie’s rasping, world-weary 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 that’s 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. Listen to the album.
