RossyBoy's Begged, Borrowed & Stolen

Here we go again ! There have been a few good examples of songs using Stevie Wonder's fabulous riff from "Hey Love". I was listening to Roc Marciano's modern X-rated rap recently and, while that kind of tune wouldn't make the cut for this kind of comp, it did remind me of the classic De La Soul version from 1991. I've also included an old favorite of mine from the Anglos; this particular mp3 is a bit better than my own scratchy rip from vinyl which  is almost completely played out now since it was purchased in the mid-Sixties. Enjoy ! RossyBoy

RossyBoy's Still Coming On Strong

I hope you find this comp uplifting - just like that big ol' hyena is about to be 
uplifted. This one maybe came a little bit quicker than you might have been expecting, 
but what else is there to do when it's cold and wet outdoors ? No more counting of 
the volumes or weekly deadlines; comps will just come when the mood dictates. I've 
been raiding the All-Sorts Drawer for this one. So, just like old times, there are a 
few (only a few!) covers and a few reggae tracks too. But then, I always believed 
reggae got soul ! There are a couple of really modern ones. What I love about retro 
soul is that you can hardly hear the join between today and yesteryear. There's 
blue-eyed soul; there's brown-eyed soul; there's probably even cross-eyed soul ! 
Track #4 is a modern U.K. version of a great song by Donny Hathaway.
The Len Barry penultimate track is the original of Dean Courtney's Northern Soul monster
(Len actually helped pen it); it only got an E.P. release in 2007. But hey, this is 2014, 
you've got to keep moving on ... and on ! I hope you enjoy this latest comp - it's 
really difficult when there is so little feedback. I'm always grateful to those who say 
thank you, but usually that's just out of politeness before they even hear the comp. 

In the end, it's probably the download numbers that are the only partial indicator of 

interest. To be  truthful, I only do this kind of thing for myself anyway. In twenty 
years time, if a nice tune gets remembered, in part because I loved it and shared it 
on a compilation, then my efforts will not have been in vain. Yours, in Soul,
