We observe the passing of Issac Hayes by playing some of the great songs he composed (with David Porter), as well as a set of swim, run, ride and jump songs in honor of the Olympics. Also, new music from Steve Cropper Felix Cavilierre, Johnny Rawls and Eddie Floyd, and a shout out to our own New Orleans soul singer hero, Willie West.
Music from Sweden…more particularly, live traditional dance music from Alingsås, Västergötland as played by Pelle and Inger Johansson with Uno Eliasson. Recorded in 1983. Also a live concert from 2003 at the Good Templar Hall in Mpls featuring Cajsa Ekstav and Bosse Larsson.
Habib Koite Lucky Dube kick off an Afrikan set leading into an Isaac Hayes tribute – followed by Arrested Development Ozomatli… always a lot more. Ending in a choral polyphonic male chorus from the former Soviet republic of Georgia.
Another great mix of old and new, from the yard to the club… Brand new tracks just in from Madtone:http://www.myspace.com/onedeckmadtone, Sista M:http://www.myspace.com/sistamparis, the Soul Merchants, Tom Drexl, Natacha Atlas, and even Paul Weller (yup, the modfather himself). Also in the mix, part 2 the “Roots Rock Reggae” guest mix from DJ Cojo of the Bushwackers Soundsystem, and a birthday mix for my daughter. A real fun summer show…
