SoulSistas And SoulBruthas! After a long dry spell digging for records I was able to hit a few of my favourite spots here in town and was lucky enough to stumble across some gems. I gotta give it up to my man DJ CAD aka http://www.mixcloud.com/chrisallwaysdiggin/ for inspiring me in his last mix to get my fingers dusty by hipping me to Lavell Hardy's "Don't Lose Your Groove." I was able to score a copy new skool style via ebay. All the other 45's were grabbed up, mostly from a dollar bin at the local, with the classic Winston's 45rpm with the HUGE "Amen, Brother" break coming from the .25 cent section. It's a bit poppy and has some crackles, but it's so cool to finally have it. I really dig the groove on "The Boogie Man." I'd never heard that one before. It's on the Casablanca label from 1974. Got a sort of late Funk, pre-Disco thing going on. Cool record.
It's always great sharing these discoveries with my Mixcloud peeps. Enjoy!
Peace and SOUL,
