Southside Story Limited Edition Platinum Vol 1

You know how it works by now. The G MAN comes up with these Big Ideas: "Let's involve La Raza to come up with suggestions of tunes for a new oldies series. I have to get out of the cold into my heated bedroom so I can look at some comics and watch TV - maybe you and Rose can do the work. Call me when it's finished and I'll say thank you to all the contributors and they'll think I'm a swell guy." So here we are - but I'm not quite as dumb as the G Man assumes I am. I've grabbed posting rights and I'm the one saying the big GRACIAS to the listeners for all their fine suggestions ! It's a hard job making the selections; getting the balance right between great but known songs and lesser known gems. I know that, for myself, any tune that I don't already have goes right to the top of the list if it's got the right tempo and sentiment for the mix. Some tunes may be excluded because they're a bit fast-paced for this kind of series. Others are sweet but appear on some common commercial or bootleg compilations and so are too well known already. But we can't write a justification for every single selection - ultimately "the decisions of the judges are FINAL !!!" So apologies to anyone who feels they missed out - we can only say "Keep Trying !". Sister DustyRose, of course, has impeccable taste and an ear for a good tune. So hopefully the ultimate picking and choosing will meet with your approval. There was such a great response that we will continue with further volumes of the series. Any of the final comments on Volume 1 will be carried forward for consideration next time. It's been great fun checking on the comments to see what pearls have come up in the day to day suggestions. There are label scans in the package, so now it's time to sit back and enjoy ! Don't turn up the volume too loud; you might wake up the G Man from his Velvet Dreamz and maybe he'll have some more BIG IDEAS .... oh no, let's get out of here, Rose....   RB

Midnite Soul Sounds

You know after being on the internet going on almost 16 years I have met quite a few Characters, some I really don't care to have met at all but most I have met through the music especially the people who have the same taste as I do, Like my crew member's & some blog members.
Some have went through heartache as I & some of the crew members did with losing loved ones, Friends and some who have passed on themselves, strangely it still hurts altho we have never met in person but you've known them long enough on line to feel their pain. I just learned one of my on line buds of 15 yrs passed away a couple yrs ago, she was so much fun to share music & chat with I'm gonna miss her. I'm dedicating one of her favorite songs to her on track 22.  RIP Doreen Vasquez aka Ufe2000

 David Scott aka Jazzman I met on line in 1999, I'm so glad we connected here again after losing touch for a few yrs, he had mailed me so much music & for that I'm grateful  :)  Mando aka Smooothgroooves I just met through here on SSS & has left many comments, he also has turned me on to some awesome tunes..It is my pleasure to have met you Mando!  Communication is a big deal here on SSS  it's how we make friends, well to me anyways. They both have left generous comments on everyone's comps for that WE also appreciate it very much...I had a plan to pick up some frequent commenter's to collaborate a few comps with me but this one here was Smooothgroooves idea (GMTA) so we went with it dragging along my bud Jazzman, Hopefully in the future I can do this again with other frequent commenter's!  Thanks to G-MAN for making our awesome cover & for contributing the last track on this comp!  Now I ask that you show some love by leaving a comment...
