    The Soul Children are a vocal trio formed in 1968 by the indomitable writing/producing team of David Porter and Isaac Hayes. Stax Records brought them together, and except for a brief period when the label was out of business, the Soul Children have never recorded for anyone else. The Soul Children are Anita Louis, John “Blackfoot” Colbert, and Norman West (originally also included Shelbra Bennett). Together, they have done six albums (three of them with Porter), and had a solid string of soul hits, worked with almost all the other Stax artists, and came through it all with smiles on their faces and good will in their hearts: the essence of soul.
     
    Genesis is the group’s third studio album, released by Stax in 1972. It was arranged Dale Warren and produced by Jim Stewart and Al Jackson. The album included the hit songs “Hearsay,” written by West and Colbert, which peaked at #5 on the Billboard R&B chart and #44 on the Pop chart, and “Don’t Take My Kindness for Weakness,” which made it to #14 on the Billboard R&B chart.

    Lyrics:
    (Yes mama?) Time to get up!
    Hello I'm Queen Latifah how ya doing?
    I hope that you're with this I hope that you're willing
    I want to introduce you to a cut called
    Mama Gave Birth to the Soul Children
    Well here comes the goy
    The truth to the goy
    You know the one that ate up like boy
    Stepping with a step, keeping with a kept
    Making an appearance with a notty-head set
    Lunatics you lose cause the Plug 2's singing
    Peace to the negative, nah, you make the weigh-in
    Weigh-in, weigh-in, way out of order
    If you know you're better, you'd better that you caught a
    Waving mine a peace sign higher than a kite
    If you're feeling sick, it's alright it's fever night
    Don't do Do see do and dig in no potholes
    Cause if you do we calling in March Patrol
    It's no different from the verbal last heard
    Cayumbo is the ruler that's bond to the word
    He's moving more than three feet, jocking with the knee deep
    Dove is going to leave you with a tweet tweet tweet
    Next on the menu, we continue with the pasta
    Dipped in chocolate, served with lots a
    Twizzlers and honey, yum yum yummy
    Lyrics I'm flaunting is good for the tummy
    Tiptoeing in I proceed to the floors
    Selling much records like a pimp mover
    Excuse me mommy, Pos wins
    Cause I'm the A to the Plug W-O-N
    Brother freak it live for this tribe
    Now let's ride down the highway of vibes
    Pushing that we start cause the soul says please
    Cutting back with the raps and we don't get cheese
    Ducks and we sit need to get
    Cause preacher is the key to the casualty
    Polaroid flicks are back and you know
    That the soul is moving on up like the Jeffersons
    Go mommy!
    I'm back, a black queen upon the scene
    With a knack for funky tracks, know what I mean?
    Prince Paul produces this and it's a fly one
    It has a beat that weigh, he's one of my sons
    It's a family affair and then we're out of here
    There is no doubt here, cause this is our year
    So flex to a Queen Latifah/De La Soul sound
    (Go ahead mama get down)
    It's inevitable that this joint venture would be incredible
    We never put ourselves on any pedestal
    But the rhyme is so good it's practically edible (Say what?)
    So check the sounds of Mama Zulu
    As I relay the story untold
    And if you're wondering why I got kids so big
    They weren't born from the body, they were born from the soul

    Artist Biography by John Lowe


    A two-man, two-woman vocal group with a penchant for recording soap-opera ballads dealing with adultery, the Soul Children were signed to Stax Records in the late '60s and first clicked on the soul charts with the multi-part single The Sweeter He Is. Their biggest hit came in late 1974 with I'll Be the Other Woman, which dented the pop Top 40. After Stax closed its doors in 1975, the Soul Children recorded for Epic and later issued several up-tempo dance singles for Fantasy's reactivated Stax label. The group temporarily stopped issuing new music by the decade's end; however, they reconvened nearly 30 years later for the release of 2008's Still Standing.

    Learn more about the Soul Explosion celebration:

    When Isaac Hayes and David Porter lost their hottest act, Sam and Dave, in 1968, the songwriting-producing duo promptly put together another vocal combination–this time a mixed quartet–with which to apply a similar formula of steamy ballads and hard-sockin’ soul. Collectively known as the Soul Children, John Colbert (better known as J. Blackfoot), Norman West, Anita Louis, and Shelbra Bennett traded fervor-filled leads, taking the music, in Porter’s words, “all the way to church.”

    The Best of Two Worlds was Soul Children's second album. It was recorded at Muscle Shoals Sound Studios, and was released in 1971. The group released a total of six albums on the Stax label.
