SOULERCOASTER Funk 45 Mix



Hey Everybody, I did a guest mix for 45live.net:

SOULERCOASTER:
A Thrill Ride of Body-Shaking Funk 45s 
It's got twists, turns, and death-drops of glorious gospel and fuzzy psych, covers of The Ohio Players, Chicago, and Frank Sinatra, and selections from Mexico and Thailand!

Enjoy!

    That London Fog has been a long time favourite of mine.

    Everything about that song is cool. I want to visit her.  Just to hang. 


  • Thanks man! I'd never heard the Della Reese, that's a really cool track.
    And Mr. Slowly of course

    The drums on that Della Reese were ahead of their time (1966)!

    My mind was blown when I heard the original version of Mr. Slowly ("sing a mean tune, kid" by Chicago). I had only known it because AKO posted it up here 10 years ago as "unknown Thai funk".

    Excellent mix. I like how it switches up between genres and still stays cohesive.

    Thanks man! I was going for a certain "mood flow".

    Yeah, excellent mix. Really enjoyed that. The Sampson and Delilah tune was a nice surprise for me as I have a few of their records but hadn't heard this one. Thanks for sharing.

    RIP Della Reese

    She wrote a chorus for her version of "it was a very good year":

    "I can recall like it was yesterday 

    Everything seems so clear

    Memories of things time cannot wash away 

    These are my cherished years"

    She had some very good years....
