In the early 1970s, Baltimore was a wellspring of soulful sound, and The Softones were at the forefront. Marvin Brown, Elton Lynch, and Steve Jackson started singing in their early teens as The Softones. With Brown as their lead singer, The Softones’ first recording was a local effort called “Any Street,” which outsold the Jackson 5’s “ABC” in the Baltimore-Washington area. This got the attention of AVCO Embassy Records, which signed The Softones and released the single that became their first hit, “My Dream.” Brown, Lynch, and Jackson continue to perform in the inimitable style unique to vocalists who really love classic rhythm and blues music.
