The Gentle Soul was a folk band formed in 1966 by singer-songwriters Pamela Polland and Rick Stanley. The band's music contained spiritual influences and an emphasis on creative and elaborate vocal harmonies. Their eponymous album appeared on Epic Records, together with a number of non-LP singles.[1] Columbia Records released one record by the Gentle Soul, which was produced by Terry Melcher. The group consisted of Riley Wildflower, Pamela Polland, Rick Stanley and Sandy Konikoff.[2] For a short time, the group included Jackson Browne.[3] The Gentle Soul recordings have become a coveted classic, and the original vinyl album is now a pricey collector’s item.[citation needed]

In 2002, Sundazed Records re-mastered and released the entire Gentle Soul collection, (the album, the singles and some never-released demos).[4]
