Thanks man. I guess Hedonist was just doling his own take on that great label. Tapscott was definitely the fulcrum around which the label turned, but as you, I and Hedonist knows, there was other exceptional talent on it too! Appreciate your support - check out my other mixes too, I'm sure there's vibes on there you will dig!! One love.

Indeed you are right about the talent, no argument there many of which never got recorded sadly. I came up as a kid around Leimert Park and those cats used to play all the time in our local church and around the park. It was an amazing time sadly gone now... Lino's Pad on the white Lobero is one of my most treasured recordings ever. I intend to check em all out my man. You have great taste and a breadth of knowledge by my skimming through your posts; Indeed you truly are a musical warrior!
