Profile S.S. Fools is a short lived outfit from California formed in 1975 and their one and only album released in 1976. Three members of the 3 Dog Night rhythm section quit the band (Schernie left in 1974, Allsup and Snead in 1975). They joined with Bobby Kimball (2 years before he joined Toto) and two others to form S.S. Fools. The name of the band was derived from the “Seven Separate Fools” 1973 album by 3 Dog Night.

The album features two Kimball compositions along with one by David Paich. A Boz Scaggs song from his Steve Miller Band tenure is also included. Stephen Stills was recording in the next studio when this album was being recorded. He co-wrote the lead off track with Schermie. 3 Dog Night producer Richard Podolor was behind the glass for this project.

The album did not have a very good popularity, although the band’s singer Bobby Kimball , after the dissolution of the band (the same happened in 1976 during the tour to promote the album) will be contacted by Toto , with which he would become famous.
