Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Daryl Hall & John Oates and the Friday Music collector’s club present the first vinyl release of “Our Kind of Soul.”
This 2004 LP, which debuted in the top 5 on Billboard’s independent albums chart, features the legendary duo reinterpreting some of its favorite soul classics by Aretha Franklin, The O’Jays and Gladys Knight. Mastered for the first time for vinyl by Joe Reagoso (Todd Rundgren, Doobie Brothers) and Joe Gastwirt, this limited-edition deluxe-LP re-release also includes three original Daryl Hall and John Oates compositions: “Let Love Take Control,” “Soul Violins” and “Don’t Turn Your Back On Me.”

“ ‘Our Kind of Soul’ is one of my favorite recordings that I have made,” Hall said. “It’s the real essence of what I’m about musically. Through these songs, the listener can hear the core of what I am as a soul singer. It’s my real deal!”
“After a career of making our own hits, here’s a cool collection of classic music that has been influential and inspiring to our original music,” Oates said.
Daryl Hall & John Oates are gearing up for a 32-date North American tour this summer with Squeeze and KT Tunstall supporting. This Live Nation-produced tour kicks off in May at Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles and extends into September. The duo will preview the tour with select dates, including a Feb. 28 performance at NYC’s Madison Square Garden, which sold out months in advance. They will also host their annual HoagieNation Festival this May in their hometown of Philadelphia.
