Diamonds in the Raw is a the 7th studio album of The S.O.S. Band, released by Tabu Records in 1989. This album marked the absence of lead singer Mary Davis, who left in 1987 to pursue a solo career. Chandra Currelly became the lead singer. Tragedy struck the band due to the untimely death of saxophonist Billy Ellis shortly before the album's completion.
The S.O.S. Band had their last fling with chart success on this 1986 album, which was the swan song for Mary Davis. "The Finest" hearkened back to the glory years, with its jaunty arrangements, collective vocals, and catchy production. Everything else was efficiently sung and assembled, as Jam and Lewis wrung the last commercial drop out of the formula.
III is the third album released by the R&B band The S.O.S. Band on the Tabu label in October 1982. It was produced by Ricky Sylvers and Gene Dozier.

The difference with this album and Rare Earth's previous release in 1978 is that the Grand Slam LP featured a Barry Gibb and Albhy Galuten tune with no input from those two individuals. The addition of Barry Gibb, Maurice Gibb, and Robin Gibb on "Warm Ride" off this quick follow-up features the Bee Gees singing, and it's that extra attention which made this the last of Rare Earth's half-a-dozen 1970s hits. What was really needed, though, was production from Barry, Robin, Maurice, and their partners in crime, Karl Richardson and Albhy Galuten, skills which might've brought the single "Warm Ride" further up the charts…
