South Shore Commission’s claim to fame are the disco classics “Free Man,” “We’re on the Right Track,” and “Train Called Freedom.” All three were mid-’70s hits produced by Philly soul songwriter/singerBunny Sigler and included on South Shore Commission, an album released by Wand/Scepter in December 1975. The LP was mixed by Tom Moulton, the club DJ who did numerous remixes for Salsoul Records (Sigler’s “Let Me Party With You,” Instant Funk’s “No Stoppin That Rockin,” Loleatta Holloway’s “Love Sensation,” Eddie Holman’s “This Will Be a Night to Remember”). The group consisted of vocalists Frank McCurry, Sheryl Henry, guitarists Sidney Lennear and Eugene Rogers, bassist David Henderson, and drummer Warren Haygood. Formed in 1960 in Washington, D.C., they were originally known as the Exciters not to be confused with the ’60s NY vocal quartet who hit with “Tell Him” and “I Want You to Be My Boy.” By 1965, they were the backup band for the Five Dutones, who were signed to George Lerner’s One-derful label in Chicago. The group’s biggest hit was “Shake a Tail Feather,” which peaked at number 28 R&B in summer 1963.
