Do whatcha wanna do!
Straight outta Compton!
Tina belts out tells about her old hometown Nutbush, TN over the fuzzed out guitar rifts and spacey synths laid down by Ike. Although they aint got “N0 Whiskey For Sale” in Nutbush, off of Highway Nineteen they know how to cook up one Extra Saucy and Soulful Diva.
Wendy Rene almost hopped on the same plane that took Otis Redding’s life along with several members from the Bar-Kays in 1967. But some time before that, let’s say, back in 1964 this little piece of soul…food came off the grill and is still delicious to hear today.
Dance Party for the Soul
Grab some Chicken & booze and Lets Boogaloo!!!
Scored this gem from my good friends at Juno.co.uk. Every house hold should have at least one copy just in case of an emergency boogaloo. And as always in the event of an emergency boogaloo situation remember to Keep Calm and Boogaloo Along.
Were always on the hunt for a new groove and Raphael Saadiq never disappoints, this Neo-Soul movement is full of amazing acts like Sharon Jones, Black Joes Lewis and many others and always keep in mind those trail blazers that are still laying it down today like Roy Head, Archie Bell, and Lee Fields.
Talk a Walk with Rapael Saadiq and those troubles of the day just melt away.
Next REVERBERATION Dance Party, Fri May 27th @ Boondocks-1417 Westheimer
Dont forget your Boo-ga-loo shoes!
Soulful rocker that I believe was originally written for Elvis’ & Nancy Sinatra’s musical Speedway and was also included in Elvis’ 1968′ Comeback Special but never aired because it was pulled by the sponsors who thought it was little too risqué. See for your self, too bad this never beamed over the american airwaves those cute little pink dresses definitely piqued my fashion interests.
Funky lil track by one of the groovest backing bands of modern day the Dap-kings who also happen to back the amazing funk/soul singer Sharon Jones. These guys are taking it back to the days when things were done right, with real instruments in a pure analog studio. You’ll defiantly want to keep an eye out for anything Daptone these are the same cats who discovered and helped Amy Winehouse develop her sound.
Been trying to get hands my on this groovin soul duet for sometime its one of two collaborations recorded between Etta James and Sugar Pie De Santo who coincidentally were also old childhood friends.
