Hand picked records important to the history of Soul Strut.
Jazz and R&B diva Byrdie Green never got the praise she deserved, even 10 years after her death. Green hopped around labels like Roulette and Twentieth Century Fox cutting singles, but it was her album work on the Prestige label that garnered all the attention thanks to her collaboration with organist Johnny "Hammond" Smith. Her last album on the label 1968's Sister Byrdie! is a forgotten gem of soul, blues, and gospel pinned down with Smith's patented organ grooves. The track "Return Of The Prodigal Son" enjoyed an underground DJ following eventually demanding a legitimate 45 reissue by famed rare groove label Jazzman.
