Diggin’ in the CRATES (No Turn Unstoned #224)

April 20, 2013 is one of my favorite days of the year, Record Store Day! For me and Questlove;), however, EVERY DAY is Record Store Day. I’m quite sure it is obvious that music is important to me, but a huge amount of my time has been and will continue to be spent in record stores. If you are in Philly, go support AKA music in Old City. If you are in the ATL, go support Moods Music and Criminal Records. If you are in NYC, go support Other Music and Academy Records. If you are in Chicago, go support Dusty Groove. If you are in Cali, go support Amoeba Records. Did I miss any?

This year’s theme is crate diggin’. Last Year’s was records and record stores:

It kind of goes without saying that I am a music addict!

Be EASY (No Turn Unstoned #222)

STOP THE PRESSES!! It has been 7 years since Alice Smith’s last album. It has been a very long wait, but well worth it. To celebrate the release of She, I am doing a mix based around my favorite song on the album, Be Easy.

Alice Smith is by far my favorite, living female vocalist. NO ONE has a voice like hers. What an amazing year of music so far with my favorite living, male vocalist, Bilal, also releasing a new album, A Love Surreal, (an amazing record, don’t sleep on it…) just a month ago! Both in the same year for me is like heaven. Not to mention Jamie Lidell and Alice Russell’s new releases as well;) Please support all of ‘em by buying their amazing music so they can all continue to make the magic happen.

SOUL for Don Cornelius Part 1 (No Turn Unstoned #183)

(September 27, 1936 – February 1, 2012)

This is the first mix of two in tribute to Don Cornelius. My childhood was filled with many hours of dutifully watching Soul Train, ironically, the soul train line being the centerpiece for me and not the guest artists. This week we are keeping it in the groove, and next week we’ll return to No Turn Unstoned’s usual eclectic format. It goes without saying that for both sets the theme is SOUL of course.

There are four soul train themes in this mix:

  • 1973-1975′s TSOP (The Sound of Philadelphia), composed by Gamble and Huff and recorded by Philadelphia soul studio group M.F.S.B. with vocals by the Three Degrees.
  • 1975-1976′s Soul Train ’75 by The Soul Train Gang
  • 1976-1978′s Soul Train ’76 (Get on Board), also by The Soul Train Gang
  • 1980-1983′s Up on Soul Train by The Whispers
