Super nice reissue on the fab Jazzman label of the complete recordings of Akron, Ohio’s Soul Toronados (sometimes spelled as Soul Tornados, Soul Tornadoes, Soul Toronadoes and even Sol Tournedos. That last one was a funny joke you can laugh about). These three singles are the only tunes they ever recorded (hence the title of the set) and they were all done in one session, but released on three different labels: Magic City, Burt and Westwood. What happened to the three kids James Smith, Charles Heller and Bobby Heller after that, I don’t know.
