Sandra Phillips :: Too Many People In One Bed


SandraPhilips-TMPIOB-CoverIn 1970 nam Sandra Phillips onder leiding van de even gekke als geniale Swamp Dogg de LP Too Many People In One Bed op. Nadat er een handvol exemplaren verscheept waren ging de platenmaatschappij failliet en verdween de LP in en groot zwart gat. Tot nu, want Alive Natural Sound Records brengt alle Swamp Dogg-producties opnieuw uit. En dus kunnen we nu zeggen dat Too Many People In One Bed inderdaad zo goed is als de uitverkorenen die de plaat kenden, toen beweerden. Dit is deep Southern soul van de eerste orde. Een meesterwerk.

Producer Swamp Dogg hadn’t known Sandra Philips long, before he signed her to Canyon Records. Swamp Dogg was introduced to Sandra by her ex-husband. He let Swamp Dogg hear a single she cut for Epic. This was kismet. Not only was Sandra hugely talented, but she’d potential. She was desperate to forge a career in music. Her soulful, emotive voice could make lyrics come to life. This was just what Swamp Dodd needed. It would fill a void left by Doris Troy who Swamp Dogg had previously worked with.
