Soul - You Can't Buy It ! And Sandra proves exactly this with her mixtape this week. Always about selection, flow, a spontaneous Bee Gees tune placed between a KPM record and a PPU joint, showing and playing just what you like to play. Thanks a lot Sandra Leidecker ! check her nice graphics and catch her playin' somewhere on this planet, or in Berlin ?
And me? A bit of Amerika, where are you headed, plus more of that amazing record by Carleen Anderson and 25 years back in time. Masterpieces. Plus Tenderlonius deep flute excursions, Hector Plimmer's rolling groove, ATCQ, Danny Brown . . . and Eddie Kendricks for a bit of Body Talk .
Modernization is messing up our minds (Sons Of The Kingdom 1980 (!)).
Walk tall and enjoy the music. x

The mix was great espically hearing a song in which I myself played percussion ca 40 years ago....the song "CALYPSO MUSIC" by Just Fab Deltones from Trinidad & Tobago....ich bin der Ade und ich wohne in Frankfurt/M. Great stuff. I always listen to Soulsearching.
