This mix is a tribute to the truly legendary record producer Joel Dorn (Atlantic Records etc). I had the pleasure of knowing Joel, and he was a prince (among thieves). He left us too soon but remains with me always. These are just a few of the funkier sides he produced--it doesn't even begin to cover the range, heights, or heft of his career. I've done some minimal mixing in parts--mostly bringing music under some spoken segments to keep it "moving". I think it's all pretty moving regardless.
