The Salsoul Orchestra was the backing band for acts on Salsoul Records. It was formed 1974 in New York., U.S. and disbanded in 1982. Their music featured elements of Philly Soul, Funk, Latin Music and disco. The Salsoul Orchestra included up to 50 members with instrumental section, arrangers and conductors. The Salsoul Orchestra was conducted by Vincent Montana Jr.(1975- 1978) Production duties came,from 1978 to 1983, by Tom Moulton, Stan Lucas, Patrick Adams & Bunny Sigler.
The personnel of the Salsoul orchestra and MFSB overlapped substantially.
Their song, "Love Break (Ooh I Love It)" has been sampled in rap songs such as 50 Cent's "Candyshop" and Eric B & Rakim's "Paid in Full", but most notably in Madonna's "Vogue".
I came across this record on a few blogs and managed to track down some audio from WFMU's site. I would love to hear more from this honky-tonkin' caterwaulin' queen. Listen to the tracks below and I think you will too!
