We are back with the first Top 10 mix of 2015 and it's so sweet it might give you a toothache.
Don't be put off by the name or genre, this is definitely another one for all you diggers out there!
Jazzman Gerald explains:
Overlooked by collectors who think they hear saccharine instead of soul, and instantly dismissed by DJs due to their non-dancefloor appeal, soul ballad 45s are often nonchalantly cast into the general category of 'sweet soul'.
However, there is a collecting fraternity of this music, which I feel is entirely valid, and I would like to contribute this mix as a means to find a few more sympathetic ears to this music which can at times be moving, rugged & raw.
Coming in at just over 30 minutes, this mix certainly is short but sweet!
So check it out and let us know what you think!
