Unreleased Prison Soul from 1979 - Symphonical Records

Unreleased Prison Soul from 1979 - Symphonical Records cover

Symphonical Records are open for business with our first release. Now Available!!

UPHEAVAL - 'COME ON WITH THE COME ON' / 'T.L.C' (Symphonical Records)

A double-sider comprising two previously unreleased tracks by the group 'Upheaval' which were recorded inside Waupun Correctional Institution.

The 9 piece Wisconsin outfit was formed whilst behind bars, cutting a series of live recordings over a few days in 1979. Several of the group members had no musical training before entering prison, however the band built up its reputation through concerts for inmates, the local public and radio.

Upheaval only had one release to their name, 'Paradise Lost' / 'Now That You're Gone', on their self-titled 'Love' label. Only 25 copies are thought to have been originally pressed, with even less surviving to the present day.

The two tracks on this 45 have not seen the light of day until now. They were recorded live using only 2 microphones and the only surviving 'masters' were in cassette form. Both sides are raw, powerful and soulful - a true upheaval from behind bars.

Price: £8

Hi There

I first heard these tracks way back in 2011 when they were sent to us (Soul Junction) by the late reverend Eddie L. Quinn. I always thought the harmonies were great even if the backing was quiet sparse. We later released a 45 on one of Eddie's other groups Fairplay which also included David Bursey of Noah and The Candi Bars on Candi-Stix fame in it's line up.

Good luck with the release   :thumbsup:
