70s stars The Pockets return to "Work It Out"

(May 12, 2021) SoulTrackers no doubt remember the funky Baltimore-based band The Pockets. Helped by Earth Wind & Fire, the eight-piece band was signed by Columbia Records in the mid-70s and issued a Verdine White-produced album that yielded the top 20 hit “Come Go With Me” in 1977.

After two more strong albums, The Pockets disbanded, but were remembered by fans of 70s soul and funk. A reconstituted version of the group, led by brothers Greg and Gary Grainger,  emerged five years ago, and has begun performing around the world.

Now, we’re excited that The Pockets are back on record. Working with mixmaster Dave Lee, the group has issued “Work It Out,” a dance number that finds the band sounding fantastic, delivering a number that is getting our seats moving, along with a positive message about working through problems when times get tough.

Check out “Work It Out” below, and join us in welcoming back The Pockets!
