SoulSistas and SoulBruthas! What's the word, my friends? Hope all is groovy in your world. Been feeling quite nostalgic lately and was thinking about back in the day, going on errands with my Pops when I was around 10-12 years old and, it sounds weird, but he would leave me in the car while he went inside his many stops to conduct his "business." Sometimes I'd be left in the ride for almost an hour by myself as Dad was a real talker, aka bullshitter. What was cool about it? I had the old man's box of 8-tracks and could sort of program my own little jam session while I was hanging in the ride. Can't tell you how much of my musical education began and flourished on those late 70's trips with the old man. Fella had GREAT taste in music. So, this is a mix that means a lot to me. I love all these tunes like mad!!!

I hope you DIG!!!

Peace and SOUL,
HSB DaveB.

I love the inspiration for this episode, Brutha. The best radio really cultivates a particular mood, serves or tells a story, and/or transports us in time. Keep the tunes coming.

And for anyone who digs this show, please consider checking out my latest episode. It's a similarly themed 70's chillout show that is meant to be listened to late at night and mixes classic 70's FM late night songs with clips from classic 70's late night television. ...It's an odd, but strangely comforting mix: https://www.mixcloud.com/DJEJP/ln-001-late-night-with-djejp/

Great selection of classic soul gems. Ain't nothing like a musical teacher showing you the goods. I'm really happy to have three young souls to teach at home.

Very comforting listen! And when I did listen I wondered if Al Green's ARE YOU LONELY FOR ME BABY (1971) could have been an inspiration for FINALLY GOT MYSELF TOGETHER (1974) by The Impressions. Probably just a coincidence but the groove is amazingly similar (and beautiful). Great set, HSB! Thanks much!
