Squib Cakes does it every time!.....

The Soul Preacher

It really does! Squib Cakes and Oakland Stroke from the same album. ToP tunes so to speak (taken from LP, Back To Oakland, 1974 Warner Bros. BS 2749).

Love this tribute track to the Godfather by Ghetto reality, interesting!!!!

The Soul Preacher

Thanks much Kenneth! The piano and the kids don't hit all the notes but it really doesn't matter. I really LOVE this uncommon tribute that is so charming especially for the little mistakes. It's a pretty rare record by the way! Thanks for ALL YOUR support!

Kenneth U. Ononaiwu

Concur with your assement of that track, definitely unusual but endearing tribute track. Most welcome, digging alot of these mixes of yours.

The Soul Preacher

Thanks so much! Especially for even checking my back catalog. I thought I'd be the only one who still listens to these :) ... As much as you feel my compilations please let me suggest a book to you about the Godfather Of Soul. One that's much closer to the truth than the rather watered down movie "Get On Up“. Like no other book this one tells the significance of JB for the African American Culture without holding back the questionable ways of Mr. Brown. First of all it’s the first book written from a BLACK man’s perspective and the Grammy awarded author — James McBride — travelled thousands of miles for researching on James Brown’s roots. There’s no other reading that goes so deeply back into JB’s childhood. The book’s title "Kill ’Em And Leave“ sounds radical but in fact it’s the most sensitive and best researched story about James Brown the man who worked harder than anybody else in not letting other people know who he really was. This sounds like a fan’s point of view but after reading the book you will agree with Mr. McBride. It’s really an entertaining and informative read. Have a great week with SOUL!

Well with respect to checking your back catalog, good music, like a good book will always stand the test of time. I did read that James brown bio, along with RJ Smith entitled, "The Life and Music of james Brown, among others." Yes Mr. Mcbride's version definitely stood out, given the perspective he took so yes one definitely gets unique perspective that most other bio's did not provide, definitely more in depth on his bacground and personality. So definitely understand the recommendation. The one that has another unique perspective (albeit abridged) is the one by a James Sullivan entitled "The Hardest Working Man: How James Brown Saved the Soul of America," given the focus on James Brown role in the Civil Rights Movement, and the inner workings of various Civil Right luminaries. But Mr. Mcbride's version is deinitely the pick of the litter, irrespective of the title, which the author actually dealt with during the course of the book so its actually a fitting title. Peace.

The Soul Preacher

Thanks for being so thoughtful my good friend! And thanks for loving the music the way you do. PEACE & RESPECT to you!

Thank you very much, Max! This time the sources have been pretty diverse. 7 and 12 inch records, CDs and even an acetate. I enjoy it so much to have all these medias around me and I hope we soon will hear what you have chosen to play at the Southern Soul Festival!
