SONG OF THE DAY The Soul Investigators – Bad Vibrations


The Soul Investigators (originally known as Calypso King and The Soul Investigators) are Timmion Records house band.  Not a stranger to the Listening Post Blog, they have featured on these pages many times – but not just as The Soul Investigators; as they are in today’s dazzling sugar drop of soul!

They came together in 1997 in Matinkylä, Espoo, Finland, just outside Helsinki and released their first single in 1998 on their own Jive (2) label.  This was then followed by their debut album, Soul Strike!, which was issued on New York’s Soul Fire label in 2001.  Members of the The Soul Investigators also founded Timmion Records in 2000 and have since accompanied an array of acclaimed soul artists, including Nicole WillisErnie Hawks and Bardo Martinez. They also continue to release instrumental recordings under their own name, as with today’s gloriously smooth offering! Released in 2015 as the b-side to their Vultures Prayer single, today’s song features Jimi Tenor on flute and, contrary to its title, these Bad Vibrations sound soooooooo damn good!!! Check it out above.
