Samuel Moore and David Prater spent their childhood singing in church in the South. Their chance meeting took place in Miami at the at the "King of Hearts Club" in Miami in 1961. Their chance meeting lead to many highs and lows. The highs were the creation of some incredibly soulful songs. The lows, were creative indifferences, drug use and David's untimely death.
Their best years, albeit short occurred between 1966 and 1968. They released such greats as "Hold On! I'm Comin", "Soul Man" and "I Thank You". It's a shame that two guys who produced such quality work hated each other behind the scenes.
Enjoy this one off their "Soul Man" album. The drums and horns keep this one funky.
