O.C. 'THE MIRACLE MAN' TOLBERT (11 releases)
 
First, let's straighten out this mysterious band "Damn Sam Miracle Man and The Soul congregation"?

The man is O.C. “Arthur Cleveland” Tolbert, also known like « The Miracle Man » or tolbert or damn sam the miracle man and the soul congregation or rev. o.c. tolbert and the blues congregation or king diamond or "The Tolbert Family Singers featuring Brother O C Tolbert" !!!
Don’t mistake O.C. Tolbert for other soul funk artists such as israel tolbert or « Joni Tolbert”, the female singer of CJ & Co.

The hereunder records hasn’t pretend to list the full discography of O.C. Tolbert. However, you could listen to different samples of his music ranging from the raw Gospel Funk to the Mellow Soul. Besides, if you have further information about this artist, feel free to give it us !

As marvin gaye, his father was a roving preacher and he went from church to church preaching the word in Alabama, and he always had our boy by his side. When O.C. was ten he was singer enough to lead the choirs at the churches where his father would preach.

O.C. had a natural talent for singing, but he found that, like his father, he had the talent of getting people to join in and participate in the festivities. He sang and played gospel music at a nursing home for a period of time in Selma, Alabama (where he was born) at the same time appearing on TV every Sunday. He developed the residents of the nursing home into such a good choir that they appeared on TV with him every other Sunday.

O.C. was a man determined to conquer all worlds, so, in 1966, he decided to start singing rhythm and blues. In 1967, he went to Detroit to find fame. He was told by a well known large record company to come for an audition a year later. He immediately disliked large record companies and went to a small one, and recorded, but...

Then he met a mover, who was very much like himself. The man? Jack Taylor, of course! Together they released many recordings on different label out of Detroit or NYC among which Jack’s labels such as « Tay-ster », « Rolyat Production », « Power house », « New Day » et « Rojac Records », and most likely other ones like Kent (UK), …

Regarding the OC Tolbert‘s discography, we can identify 2 main periods, on the one hand from the 70s with his raw funk sound like on his album damn sam the miracle man and the soul congregation and on the other hand, from the 80s with his pure modern soul singles on « Rojac Records» among which his ultra rare single « I’ve got it » that it has already sold at more than US$ 4,000 !!!
