Pride was a sub-label of MGM Records that launched in 1970. The label released some amazing music over the years including The Sylvers, Foster Sylvers, Jimmy Smith and Incredible Bongo Band amongst others.
Michael Viner was a driving force behind the label and involved in many of the stand-out releases on it; working alongside Leon Sylvers III, Keg Johnson and Jerry Butler to create a unique, rich, deep soul sound that has rarely been rivalled in our opinion.
