This is a tumblelog of some of my favorite soul and funk 45s.
Ask me anything
Soul Destroyers -
Blow Your Top Pt 1
Funky version of “Mellow Down Easy” with slightly different lyrics. A CLASSIC, but recent, funk 45.
Willie Cobbs -
You Don't Love
The original Willie Cobbs version of this often covered classic.
Sugar Boy Williams -
First learned of this from a compilation at the radio station, so I had to track down an original 45 of it. Amazing R&B.
Paula Lamont -
A Beatle Meets A Ladybug
Here is an odd one. At first I thought it was novelty, but its actually quite haunting and amazing, almost sister funk even.
Joyce Williams -
I Don't Want Your Love
Fantastic soulful side by the same Joyce Williams that did ‘The First Thing I Do In The Morning’.
The Olympics -
I'll Do A Little Bit More
One of my favorite northern-ish records. Goes over well to just about any audience too.
Chris Clark -
Whisper You Love Me Boy
My favorite from Chris Clark, and probably my favorite version of this motown classic.
Maggie Thrett -
Another Soulelujah classic. I’ll be DJing there tonight…don’t miss it, if you are in the Boston/Cambridge area.
Bobby Byrd -
Signed Sealed Delivered
Another for the infamous new covers mix?
Marc Aryan -
A Soulelujah CLASSIC!
My name is PJ. I do the Galactic Fractures radio show.
