Star Material "Give Me Some Play / I Need You" (Sprite)

In the 70's, the Commonwealth was well represented on the charts and radio dials with such acts as Mass Production, Poison, Trussle, Ujima (Later Anglo Saxon Brown and Silk) and smaller groups like Standing Room Only, Starfire, and Star Material. Star Material was a Richmond group produced by Tyrone Thomas of Virginia powerhouse The Whole Darn Family and Richmond record mogul supreme August Moon. This lone single on the Sprite label is not rare by any means, but is a good representation of the Virginia sound during the late 70's. Members of the band continue to perform, including vocalist Jimmy "Slim" Smith who is part of the Richmond's NYCE
