Doing it to Death: Stone Cold Soul

Posted in music post with tags , , , on February 7, 2009 by Wes

I read Peter Guralnick’s book, Sweet Soul Music, The Southern Dream of Freedom a few months ago. It is a fantastic book that I would recommend to anyone interested in learning more about southern soul. After finishing it I was inspired to make a mix CD of some of the best soul songs that I have. A lot of this is from the Stax/Volt and Atlantic catalogue.
I’ve given out a few so far. If you got one and you found out that there is no track listing I’m sorry. Here it is if you want to fill it in yourself. Also if you think this looks good and you want one just ask me. Some of these are classics and some are a little more obscure. A few of them are pretty well known samples too.
