about

The third in our series of Miami soul overviews gathers 15 tracks from Frank Williams’ exceptional Saadia label. As Willie Clarke and Johnny Pearsall’s Deep City label was folding, the house band at Criteria studios were just getting started.

Together with his arranger Willie “Little Beaver” Hale, Williams produced just 10 singles, but all are peerless examples of the original Miami sound.
