More moody, sexy rockaballads and jazzy country and hammond groovers and Jackie testifying and Oscar Brown Jr singing the hell out of that one. Do with you you will, we'll see you on Saturday night x
This months mix features my favourite slow grinder from the new Jazz Party album that's not out for another couple weeks yet, an originally un-issued Little Bob & The Lollipops number you can find on their recent LP on Mississippi Records, the b-side of Jackie Shane's super rare final 45 you can get on the new box set of her complete recordings on Numero Records, some folk-blues from Odetta and a nod to the soon approaching spooky holiday via C.W. Stoneking's "The Zombie". Our midnight guest DJ Ladysoul brings some classic fingersnappers on her side, and side Pierre is all mid-sixties instrumentals! Enjoy x Richie1250
The passing of Charles Bradley made me reflect on how much I gotta cherish my favourite contemporary soul singers who are still alive and working, so my side this month is all recent-ish slow jams from people you can still look forward to seeing live if you lucky.
Plenty of the usual old gold on Side Shio Otani and Side Pierre Baroni too of course...
I accidentally deleted the links for the early mixes, but they are back up now. Download to your hearts content!
To celebrate 50 slow grind parties, we have employed the services of a vintage 1960 room-sized IBM super-computer (the RAM is a giant glass tube filled with mercury that electrons are shot through) to calculate each of our top 5 most played slow grind records. You can look forward to hearing these classics and plenty more freshly dug up sounds at SLOW GRIND FEVER #50 - BYO BACCHANAL AT RUSSIAN HOUSE, be sure to get a ticket before it sells out!
