Our dear friend Brent Hosier, the guy behind the outstanding "Ol' Viginia Soul" series and head honcho of Plut Records has done it again! Hot off the presses comes a previously unreleased gem from the First Lady of Virginia Soul, Norfolk's own Barbara Stant! More powerful than a locomotive, "Superman" is heroic Sister Funk from 1972 written and produced by Lenis Guess. MS. Stant is at the top of her game on this one, with super-human backing from Raw Soul, who also contribute the aptly titled flip, "Just Walk Funky". How these two tracks remained in the vaults for some 37 years is beyond us, but now's your chance to get them both on one killer 45!
Another high quality release mastered from the original reels, for optimal sonic impact. As always, quantities are limited, so grab 'em while you can, and support a great Virginia label! And remember "It ain't a boot...if it's on Plut!"
$5.00 each (Shipping $3 in the US and $6 for the rest of the world). Listen to the sound samples below!
