Talent doesn’t get much more local than Sterling Harrison, a soul man who worked L.A. chitlin’ circuit his whole life. For years he wowed ’em at M&M Soul Food at Manchester and Western, and it was well worth the trip to go and see the show.
Sterling died two years ago, and during his life he didn’t get much recognition outside of South Central, but I’m hoping that’s all going to change soon, with the release of his first album (August 21st), coming just in time for a whole new group of fans to discover him.
Chris Morris says more and better than I ever could here, so go and read that.
Otherwise, just get yourself a copy of South of the Snooty Fox and prepare to spend an evening with a soul legend.
