.. and I of course speak about the first original company of Groove Merchant Records led by the Grammy-award winning music producer Sonny Lester. Too sad that the Mixcloud description is limited to less than 1,000 characters. That makes it kind of hard giving proper credit to musicians and producers ... enjoy the driving instrumentals and soulful tunes ... I really dug that label ... the lists below might give you an inspiration what to put next into your basket of your trusted record store ... the streaming doesn't really make it up to the records ...


what a great list, thanks
