Only 1 left in stock

Cousins Mel Hardin and Tim McPherson, both from Holly Springs, Mississippi, were discovered by Gene Chandler in Chicago. Mel’s mother, Yolanda Hardin, signed them to her label “Bamboo” records in 1969. Their first single, “Backfield in Motion”, went gold in 1969 with over one million sales. In 1971, they were signed by Barry Beckett at Muscle Shoals sound studio and recorded “Starting All Over Again”, which master was bought by “Stax” records, starting a string of Stax hits and filling the gap left by Sam & Dave after the split with “Atlantic” records in 1968. Sadly¬† Tim McPherson died in 1986. Thia disc from 1969 is in EXCELLENT condition, worth checking the flip too!!
