The Soulful Strings were without a doubt the hippest project ever to emerge from the '60s with the word ''Strings'' in it's name. Brainchild of producer/arranger/bassist/songwriter (and genius) Richard Evans, the group was a far cry from the interchangeable outfits that flourished during the ''beautiful music'' era; instead, The Soulful Strings were actually composed of members of the Chess/Cadet label house band, including flautist Lennie Druss, guitarist Phil Upchurch, bassist/cellist Cleveland Eaton and harpist Dorothy Ashby, who laid down a tasty electric groove into which Evans stirred lush strings and unusual instrumentation like the kalimba and sitar.
The result was a sound that resided at the crossroads of easy listening, jazz, R&B and exotica-and, as one might expect from that description, every Soulful Strings release (they made seven albums) is treasured by cratediggers worldwide. This 1968 release was their highest-charting record at #35 on the charts. The soundtrack to many a swingin' '60s Christmas party.
