This Just In: Sons Of Soul

Tony! Toni! Toné – Sons Of Soul 2LP
Listen: “If I Had No Loot”
Essential reissue of a landmark 90’s R&B album! There’s a reason you don’t readily find used vinyl copies of Tony! Toni! Toné’s Sons Of Soul even though the album sold in the millions – it’s something most people have kept in their collections since ’93. Now, nearly 25 years later it’s available on vinyl again, and this pressing will probably get scooped up fairly quickly. Considered their best album by critics and fans alike (although they didn’t make that many albums), what’s truly remarkable about Sons Of Soul is that the band made it exactly the way they wanted despite their preferences going against the grain of most other 90’s pop/R&B acts, both stylistically and logistically. None of their contemporaries were self-producing their own albums, let alone writing/arranging all the material and playing the principle instruments live and in the studio. While these choices may have proved to be hurdles for the group, their uncompromising vision was documented fully on their terms, and the album’s strength is undeniable. And the jams hold up! Come pick this one up before it’s gone again, and check out this week’s in-stock list below AND the immense new collection of previously-love jazz, world, funk and more hitting the shelves in the coming days! -MLE
