SoulSistas And SoulBruthas! Got a chance to stop my little secret digging spot, the local Salvation Army Thrift Store and had some great luck. All these records were in a box together. It looks like they more than likely came from the same person. I was particularly happy to finally get Joe Cocker's out of print LP with "Woman To Woman" on it. Loads of mugs have sampled that one. The Ike & Tina record is a scorcher. Tom Jones puts his spin on Sam & Dave's classic Stax hit. There's an absolutely amazing cover of Al Green's "Love And Happiness" by a group out of Philadelphia called, First Choice. Man, I totally dig that one! Bobby Bryant does a stunning cover of The Beatles', "Happiness Is A Warm Gun," one of the best I've ever heard. And the mix title cut comes from a strange little 45 on the Dore' label. You just gotta hear it!
Sometimes my little spot really delivers! I do hope you dig and I'll catch you on the FLIP!
Peace and SOUL,
