Sunday Monday Soul, I bring to you Michael Orr; NO. Not the football player but the 70’s soul singer. The record I present is off of his “Spread Love” LP which was originally released in 1976 on the Detroit based Sunstar label. Largely ignored when it was first issued, which made this a true gem. Inspired by the musical vision of Quincy Jones, Michael Orr and bass player Carey Harris assembled a cast of musicians and vocalists to create a timeless masterpiece.
What else is there? Well you’ll just have to see after the break.

High Society – I Can’t Believe
One of the last records issued by this highly collectable Windy City label, located on Record Row. Which was called that because of the large amount of record labels based there in their same neighborhood.
Sample heads can you do anything with this?
