Darondo // Big Pimpin’


William Pulliam, who performed in the 1970s under the name Darondo, was a funk and soul singer that often drew comparisons to Al Green and Sly Stone. He wasn’t well known by anyone except serious soul enthusiasts and he was rumored to be a pimp. However, he denies this claim.

A native of the Bay Area, Darondo released three singles in the early 70s that were a perfect mix of low-rider soul with blues and r’n’b. Music had always been a hobby for Darondo, soon after the release of his three 45s he stopped recording. Darondo took himself out of the spotlight 27 years ago, but he wasn’t forgotten. In 2008, his song “Such A Night” was included on Ubiquity Record’s compilation Super Cool California Soul 2. There are some gems on both of his albums, Let My People Go and Legs.
