Welcome To My Blog

Thanks for checking the blog out... Hope it offers something a bit different every now & again. Though I come from a pseudo - Mod background (Soul & Ska in particular), I have a diverse taste in music & hope my varied posts will reflect this.

Cheers Skamanc .... I'm not after your undying gratitude, but please leave your thoughts, comments & opinions on the posts & content. I regularly up- & download material, plus buy and trade items. As such, if I have inadvertently "trodden on anyone's toes" in posting anything then please let me know & accept my apologies. Also please support the artists involved & remember that the blog is merely a pointer toward these various downloads, which are stored elsewhere. Legally, any downloads should not be retained for more than a week. So now I've told you the legal bit !

Feel free to give me a shout : waltjabsco@hotmail.com

THIS IS SOUL !! (Atlantic 1968)

The excellent "This Is Soul!" compilation was originallly issued in 1968 as a 12 track LP as an introduction to the Atlantic label / roster. It was re-issued in 2007 on CD format by the Rhino label, with no less than 17 bonus tracks, not only maintaining but greatly embellishing the already killer track listing. If you only want or need one soul compilation, then it just has to be this one.... Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin, Carla Thomas, Sam & Dave, Solomon Burke... the list goes on ! http://rapidshare.com/files/358743389/Various_Artists_-_This_Is_Soul.rar
