about

Pamela Polland formed the Gentle Soul with co-songwriter and singer Rick Stanley in 1966. Inspired by their mutual interest in meditation, metapysics and spiritual exploration, Pamela and Rick wrote, recorded and performed on the cutting edge of the Folk/Rock Era for the next three years. Although the Gentle Soul only released one album during that time, they surrounded themselves with the likes of Ry Cooder, Taj Mahal, Van Dyke Parks, Jack Neitzche, Larry Knechtel, Paul Horn and many other talented musicians. Produced by Terry Melcher (The Byrds, Paul Revere & The Raiders), the Gentle Soul recordings have become a coveted classic, and the original vinyl album is now a pricey collector's item.

In 2002, Sundazed Records re-mastered and released the entire Gentle Soul collection, (the album, the singles and some never-released demos), in one handsome compilation complete with wonderful photographs from Pamela's memerobilia and recent interviews with Pamela and Rick.
