– Soul Stirrers: Checker 10038

This morning I added scans and details for Checker LP 10038 by the Soul Stirrers. On this album, recorded in December 1967, the Souls Stirrers were accompanied by the Harold Smith Majestic Choir. The album features “Why Am I Treated So Bad”, written by Roebuck Staples, which probably is the highlight of the album. The Staple Singers recorded it for Epic in 1966 as “Why? (Am I Treated So Bad)”.

The Soul Stirrers recorded intensively for Checker from 1965 to 1970/71, this being their fourth album for the label.
