Rebels Without A Pause

Today, the Nat Turner Rebellion, a Philadelphia soul band named after the slave rebellion of 1831 (but you knew that I'm sure). 

Active from 1969 to 1972, they made a few singles that were compiled with some previously unreleased material on an album called "Laugh To Keep From Crying" which came out in 2019. Think Norman Whitfield-era Temptations without the production budget.

"Plastic People" - The Nat Turner Rebellion

"Ruby Lee" - The Nat Turner Rebellion

Notorious smoothie-chops Major Harris was in the band for a while, but I don't know whether he features on those tracks. Here he is with his big hit.
