5 SOUL JAMS I FORGOT ABOUT

This weekend was the Renegade Craft Fair in San Francisco and I had the pleasure of serving up many many hours of artisanal wild-crafted soul records from the mezzanine DJ booth.  Three days, 7 hours a day, no rap (family event).  It’d been months since I last did a set like this and I found myself laying eyes and fingers on records I hadn’t even thought about since I moved out of Oklahoma.  Here are 5 choice cuts that I had completely forgotten existed but are newly resurrected in my musical mind after this DJ marathon.

Joe Tex – I Gotcha

Stevie Wonder – Purple Raindrops

B.B. King – The B.B. Jones

Baby Ray – Just Because

Funkadelic – I Bet You
