Northern soul, deep funk, and fine living in Pittsburgh. You are what you dance to.

Steamy Modern & Breezy Crossover

The return of the Friday Night Rhythm Riot! (Albeit on Thursday night...)

I made myself this mix for the singular purpose of outdoor grilling on warm summer evenings. Now I share it with yinz. But it comes with two warnings...

1) WARNING: This mix, of Steamy Modern & Breezy Crossover, contains some records which many amongst us (including myself) could truthfully think of as ... well ... DISCO. (Hey - cool with me! I love this stuff. But I thought some of you would wanna know.)

2) WARNING: This mix also contains some records - including the first one - which are not in mint condition ... so there WILL be scratchy noise and such. Again, I kinda like that. It's more real and lifelike. But some people are picky.

Anyway, here 'tis... Soulcialism presents...
45 minutes of late '60s, '70s, & even '80s soul!
