The Super Soul Movement

Growing up in Moss Point, Mississippi, 12-year-old David "Lenny" Stallworth began rehearsing with his brother Doug and fellow neighborhood kids Sam Stanton, Leonard Walker, Phillip Williams, and Frank Rogers in their backyard in 1972. When their racket reached the ears of local boutique owner Jackie Wells, a management deal was tendered and the Super Soul Movement appellation was assigned. After a year of club owners balking over the group's minor status, Wells brought Super Soul Movement to Moss Point's APM Studios to record the single he hoped would push them to the next level. The Super Souls trekked to Los Angeles in 1974 to try their luck, but after two summers of Hollywood shuffling, the teens' energy and in-fighting led to the group's demise.
