Smoothie Pie

G.E.D. Soul Records, the home of super heavy raw southern soul (or Murfreesboro, Tennessee, as it’s also known) say: “You like smooth? You like pie? Then you will love Smoothie Pie". Damn straight. They could equally have said: ‘You like Archie Bell and the Drells? Stevie Wonder? Al Green? Then you’ll love Sky Hi's debut single, Smoothie Pie.’

Turn it over and you’ve got Get Yourself Together, which sees Sky Hi turn up the funk and shows they’re no strangers to the early 70s vintage of Curtis Mayfield, Sly Stone and Marvin Gaye.
