SoulSistas And SoulBruthas! About 5yrs ago while desperately looking for an obscure SOUL song that was out of print and had never been issued on CD, I ran across Larry Grogan's blog, Funky 16 Corners. To my delighted surprise, there the song was along with a label scan and detailed history. Right then I thought, this is fantastic, I'm starting a blog of my own. I'm gonna seriously get out there and dig for records. I'm gonna be just like this guy. Well, no one is like Larry Grogan!!! He's one of the premier Soul/Funk archivists in the world. Whatever it is that I do is a pale imitation of what he is the master of.
To keep Funky 16 Corners the amazing resource it is, Larry invites some of the best diggers in the world over for a "mix" pledge drive to support the site . If you're a lover of Soul and vinyl, please pop over and donate a few dollars for this fantastic archive. http://www.funky16corners.com/?p=2869
Here's Larry's ace FUNK 45rpm mix for the event!
Peace and SOUL...
