Oldtimer Souldies Series No. 11 - Chicago Sugar

The Veteranos are on the road again. The pensioners' bus has headed north to Chi-Town for some cruising round the Chicago soul scene. As ever, there are some classic favorites, but you may well find some harder-to-find tunes as we leave the main roads and tour the back streets. Give us the green light if you like what we came up with. Those are The Vibrations on the cover. Talking of vibrations, maybe this ramshackle old jalopy will hold itself together for some further mileage!

Borrowed Time Soul Classics Vol. 2

Mello returns with Volume Two of Borrowed Time Soul Classics. I wanna thank everyone for your responses on my volume one compilation. Unfortunately I had run into some computer issues after responding to over 100 & was not able to respond to some. I thank G-Man for seeing to it that your requests had been fulfilled by eventually posting the password. Once again his artistic skills are evident in the volume two cover, thanks man! Here we have some tracks that are seldom played on the radio or that have been completely overlooked. I sincerely hope you enjoy what may be new to you or enjoy a loved track or two that you haven't heard in some time. I somehow feel confident that I'll always have a surprise in store but let me know if I'm hitting on the right notes?  I'm not asking for much considering it takes longer to download than it does to say thanks......please leave a thank you message. So with that being said, there is definitely no shame in my game.  Mello
