If you’re a fan of music in all its varied size and scope, it doesn’t take long before you realize how powerful soul music can be. I find myself endlessly fascinated by the depth of soul music, and that around every corner you can hear your new favorite thing, sometimes several times in a single song. So it’s always nice to dig through a bunch of cool songs and throw together a show that just cooks.
This show is also a tribute to Don Cornelius. While I can’t say that I watched a lot of Soul Train, I do remember it fondly. The show was an important part of getting soul music out to a larger audience, and his influence is undeniable. Given that DJ JustanotherDJ paid tribute to a few other’s that passed in hour one, it seemed appropriate.
Today’s show would not exist without Isosceles Diego, a man who is my Soul Connection. He was the one that introduced me to Detroit Soul From The Vaults, Shrine, and The Northern Side Of Philly Soul, all albums that I used (among other things) to piece together this show. Isosceles has been an influence on my musical taste from when I was a wee pup, and it is always good to give him a shout out. I can only hope that he can have a chance to tune in and rock out.
Don’t forget to go to the show on February 10th at Food For Thought! It’s gonna rule.
See ya in seven.
