I'm rather pleased with today's mix. It starts off on a groovy trip. Then there's some contemporary soul from Anthony Hamilton, one of the few modern R&B singers whose voice doesn't make me hit the stop button immediately. After that is a sizeable slice of real R&B and the session ends with a northern soul classic. Something there for everyone who has the soul inside of them.
The last five tracks are ripped from some very old vinyl discs and come complete with authentic scratches and hiss. A bit like Grandmère Mimi.
