The Words of Wisdom & Truth Revue - You Got Me Smiling - Cannonball

B/W - Just Another Face

Format: 7" Vinyl (new Release)

Another fantastic release from the Cannonball Label in 2021.


It all started when Herman “Butch” Slaughter at 12 years old asks his parents for a professional tape recording machine for Christmas. Butch’s technical training in music came from him being First Chair/First Chair Baritone in the the school choir. He started to write song poems and dreamed the day he would hear his songs on the radio. He had several attempts at putting a group together eventually leading to the creation of The Words of Wisdom with Karen Slaughter, Robert “Buck” Vaughn, Rosa Lunderman and Mabel Heart. They started earning some good popularity at the crossing of the seventies and eighties although experienced some quick lineup changes until they disbanded in 1982. Stable artists at the legendary Lamp - the so called “Naptown’s Motown” - these guys were part of the sparkling funk soul scene of Indianapolis alongside the likes of The Vanguards and The Fabulous Souls. Writer, producers, studio owners involved in these recordings all passed away except Herman Slaughter, founder member of the band and a blasting dj still active on his scene to these times. The recordings presented on this release went lost until 2 years ago.
