Charlie explains 'This has always been a theme in our songs inspired very much by our collaboration with Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff of Philadelphia International Records whose songs like "Love Train" and "Love Is The Message" had a positive and spiritually uplifting message.'

In 1967, Charlie Ingui formed the band The Soul Survivors. They scored a hit record with Gamble and Huff' It was Gamble and Huff’s first major hit with the song "Express Way To Your Heart” It Reached number 3 on the R&B chart, spent 15 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 and sold over one million copies! Charlie and Richie grew up in the Lower East Side of New York and were the same scene in NY with The Rascals, Joey Dee and the Starlighters, The Vanilla Fudge, and many other Blue Eyed Soul Bands that paved the way for folks like Hall and Oates.

Originally, they were a trio and had a third singer, Kenny Jeramiah, who went on to have success in Atlantic City.

They went on to make several other great records including “Mama Soul” which was also included on the 1969 album with Muscle Shoals producer. Rick Hall called. “Take Another Look” The Swampers with Duane Allman played on that album. In 1974, Gamble and Huff got a custom CBS label – Philadelphia International Music and signed the Soul Survivors once again. They made a fantastic record with their amazing band, Charlie and Richie Ingui, John "Beedo"Dzubak & The amazing Fred Beckmeier on bass. He was a major influence.

“Wake Up Old World” is the first side of an upcoming limited edition 45 vinyl on LRK Records.

'Movin' In Love's Direction' is the next single and the flip side of the limited edition 45 vinyl which is coming soon. It is set for a 22/3/24 release. It had long been part of The Soul Survivors live show, but never appeared on a record until now. Lyrically, it is about positivity, and the desire to create a better world.
