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 !

CAROLINA FUNK 1968 - 1977

Yeah... the blog is 3 years old today...Thanks to everyone who has helped out technically, logged in, downloaded, left a comment / message, befriended me & sent in material. You all know who you are...

Love Skamanc

PS...The freeloaders out there can all fuck off.....

Great collection of soul / funk from the States of North & South Carolina, dated 1968 - 1977. Some excellent material on here - nobody is what you might call a household name, though these guys were no doubt massive on the College & support circuits back in the day. One is unreleased and the rest is made up of old master tapes and some rare vinyl. Occasionally parts grate on you...James Brown & Aretha "steals" like "Do right..." and "Take it to the bridge..." but a top collection of period soul / funk all the same that is well worth the download...

Thanks & luv to Steve & Cheryl - both have been 110% rocks during a difficult period...
