Friday Night Rhythm Riot!

So, before I go out on a Friday, I'll often crank out a few 'chunes of the rougher variety to get in that soulful mussed-up mood.

In honor of the Soulcialist spirit, and to give a taste of some of the R&B side of things that I'll be poppin' off at Soulcialism next Friday night, I'm going to start recording short mixes of some o' that stuff for y'all to download and - hopefully - get yr whiskey on to.

Click THE LINK to listen (or right-click to download, of course!) to...

Rough-lover R&B, hard-edged Northern Soul, Friday-night gospel, and black rock ’n’ roll straight off of scratched 45’s to get your energy pumped for the drinking to begin!

The Sheppards – Give a Hug to Me – Constellation
Della Reese – 99 and ½ Won’t Do – RCA Victor
