The Story Of

A 17 track funk album (47m 19s) — released November 15th 2010 on Tramp Records

In the 1960s and '70s hundreds of teenage funk & soul bands across the USA independently recorded and released their music. Most of them achieved only local success with their recordings, almost none of them ever made it onto the charts. This meant small runs of funk 45s which have since become highly sought after, hard to find and super collectable. One of those many bands were the Soul Bros. Inc. out of Houston, Texas. They were likely one of the most important funk/soul groups in the city in the late 1960s until they broke up in the mid '70s. They were part of a much wider movement of African American protest via music in the era of civil rights. I had the pleasure of spending hours on the phone talking to Henry Boatwright. Boatwright played flute, saxophone and sang on many songs as well as composing many of the releases for the band's own S.B.I. Records label. (S.B.I. stands for Soul Brothers Inc.) Now it's time for me to pass on the world of Mr. Boatwright. He is eager to share the story of the Soul Bros. Inc. with you and in doing so hopes to preserve their legacy for generations to come.
