Sittin’ Tight EP2016
Released June 5, 2016.
Destiny always surprises us and most of the time it’s in a greater way than we can imagine ourselves. Here’s a story for you, which resulted in this brand new never before heard music. Back in September 13, 2004 Al Campos took his band “Sittin’ Tight” (now known as “SoulHarmonic”) into the recording studio for a one day session. The band was able to record 5 songs to be used for booking and promotional purposes. This is a rare recording where Al is singing cover tunes by great artists whom have inspired him all his life, Bill Withers, Marvin Gaye, Sly & The Family Stone and Roy Ayers.
As destiny would have it, 12 years later these recordings would be found in the archives of positiveSOUL Productions. After a listen, the songs sounded great with a very “live in the studio” quality to them. The songs are honest, no frills, direct to tape, energetic and a testimony to 5 guys loving the music and sound they have when playing together.
