Dick Griffey was the top black concert promoter and club owner of ‘Guys and Dolls ‘ . In 1974 Dick Griffey and Don Cornelius opened the ‘Soul Train Club’ with the hottest DJ’s, biggest soul stars and new up and coming talent. Don Cornelius was the charismatic Soul Train TV host and Dick Griffey was the biggest booking agent of soul stars. In 1975 Dick Griffey, Carrie Lucas (Mrs. Griffey) and Don Cornelius formed Soul Train Records as a spin off from the American TV show. From the very beginning Dick Griffey knew all about entertainment and pulling a crowd. The record label and TV show launched the soundtrack to the lives of people in the 70’s, 80’s and early 90’s.
In 1978 Dick Griffey purchased all rights to Soul Train Records from Don Cornelius. This is when Soul Train Records became Solar Records the Galaxy of Stars. Almost every radio station in the UK today will play a club classic from the Soul Train or Solar Records collection. Shalamar alone sold 25 million records worldwide and their label mates The Whispers and Midnight Star also sold in their millions on Soul Train and Solar Records. Soul Train and Solar Records was the ultimate soul funk sound of the 70’s, 80’s and early 90’s. The Soul Train Club in 2020 will be the only official night bringing you all the classics from our record labels.
