SoulSistas And SoulBruthas! Got a mix for you I really dig. I did this mix for one of my favourite bloggers, Scholar over at "Souled On." It's inspired by my Pops and his briefcase of 8 Track cartridges. Back when I was 8-10, Pops used to take me to run errands and he'd always leave me in the car. You could do that back then. Luckily, he'd always leave the keys and I knew Pops was a talker so a five minute stop for him was always 30 mins. I'd grab the case and pop in some music, lean back and do some serious chillin'. I thought I was The Mack! I distinctly recall how much I was mesmirized by that amazing Bob James cut. And Marvin's "Trouble Man" soundtrack was fantastic, among so many others. I discovered so much great music this way.
So, I do hope you enjoy. Not too much in this one except superb music and a little mid-set ode to my favourite cop show, "Starsky and Hutch." Always imagined myself as Starsky back then.
Peace and SOUL,
