Smiling Faces: The Best Of Undisputed Truth

Smiling Faces: The Best Of Undisputed Truth by The Undisputed Truth
Released: Jun 2003
Label: Motown
This album is strong from front to back, full of gorgeous psych soul, but the obvious standout is "Smiling Faces Sometimes." Maracas rattle over a bed of lush instrumentation as Joe Harris' smoky vocals warn of "smiling faces that show no traces of the evil that lurks within." The song was recorded in 1971 -- as the idealism of the '60s was giving way to the grim realities of the '70s -- and is the perfect bridge between the sugary vapidity of Motown's prime and the politically-charged auteur funk that was becoming increasingly prevalent.
