get on the roll
the city was good enough for him

Fighting Back

And, when you least expected it ... I'm back and I brought something especially for you. Well, ok, just the usual 2 hours of rhodes soul, wah wah pop, baroque schlock, deep rock and devestating funk. I'm off until 9/17, so all stops were pulled out for this one. What's in it for you? Try clicking on the La'Shell 45 below to check in, check it out, and check yourself, but good.
And if you aren't sure where things are headed, just check that full playlist a little further down - hoo boy, that's good typin'!

MP3 & Playlist for Lost & Found, 08/13/07

a dash of pepper
an ice-filled highball

Hot & Cold

Hmm. I can't really claim "summer vacation," since I've only
posted 4 playlists all year. I can promise to start posting them all
on schedule, but it would only sound hollow. All I can do is offer this one in hopes that you will just take it and smile.

Now all you gotta do is click on the denim trousers that move in metronomic fashion* below, and the show will be underway (well, 3 minutes into the sound file) ... and when you're feeling stumped and need a lifeline, just check out the nicely formatted playlist further down, made especially for you! Go forth and listen!

not even silk

Riders on the Storm

See, I told you I was back! Running through camera batteries as I snap away at these records for your viewing pleasure - but it's all worth it, as only Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye can bring you a dossier of this depth, right?
Eh, who wants to look at music - it's meant to be heard, so click on the confectionary soul band below and take a 2-hour trip through sounds both bombastic and decidedly mellow. Guitar-laced soul, conga-led girl pop, epic rock soundscapes and deep deep roots await. It is all chronicled in print below, in case you need to keep track ... and I am back on track, you know.

hip-huggers only, please
should never have untied her
Let Me Take the Wheel

Wow, we're back - 4 months and yet it could easily have been a week! Thanks to everyone who got in touch looking for updates, hopefully things are back on track for the time being. Let's get you right into action. Hop into the backseat and strap in, things are going to move fast, and this road can get rough at times.

Just a click on the Knack 45 below will start the engine, and soon you'll be cruising to 2 hours of distorted funk, smooth soul, dreamy pop and all manner of sounds in-between. Just keep your ears on the road and your eyes on that map of destinations below, just in case you lose your way.

whatever happened to men named Dink?

The Name of the Game

Ok, pal - just keep looking at that menu and don't say a word. I've asked you here because I'm told you're the kind of guy that likes to "find" things ... well, it just so happens I know a few things that were "lost" and need finding, heh ... hey - just keep looking down, like we're not even talking ... now, you seem to know your way around locks and I've been told you can crack a chest of goodies with the only sound being a tiny click. If that's so, why don't you show me, by clicking on those 2 heavy Soul LP's down below ... it should lead you to just the "lost" items you were looking for - and I've even supplied the blueprint, only a little further down, to help you get around. We'll meet again in two weeks, to lay the goods on the fence - and then we're home free. Now, get clicking.
