love your site. i check it all the time. in prague now, so internet connection and language is tricky otherwise id attach tracks. Here are two "must haves" from the vault. 1: STAGGOLEE by Pacific Gas and Electric. Grab it off the DEATH PROOF soundtrack (i hate pulling off soundtracks but this one is too good) 2: WHAT'D I SAY by Pops Staples, Albert King and Steve Cropper off of JAMMED TOGETHER. Life changing. Thanks for everything.

Also, I don't know if you have seen this or heard it. I have only found it on youtube but this version of "It's Man's World" performed by James Brown and Luciano Pavarotti with a full string section from an orchestra backing them is amazing. Way better than I expected and not nearly as cheesy. Is there anyone with a more interesting sense of groove than James Brown?

Oh, I realize I only previewed my other comment.

Here is what it said. The other thing I have been loving lately is "Dreams of Freedom: Ambient Translations of Bob Marley in Dub" by Bill Laswell. Normally I am very skeptical of remix albums especially when they are remixes of great artists like Bob Marley but this one really won me over in a big way.

How about "I Just Can't Get You Out of My Mind" - a seldom played track by The Four Tops. Seldom played over here in the UK, anyway. Really good!

2nd the Darondo. "Didn't I" or "Legs" too. He's fantastic.

Also love the site. Been gone on all-star break vacation and am catching up on some old posts. This is both new and should tie in with your July 4th thread too.

Check out Michael McDermotts new song "The American in Me" great lyrics.............

Damn missed out on the great Al Green stuff at the bottom of the page. Any chance that stuff will come back up in the future?

thanks and keep up the good work.

Brenda & The Tabulations. Her cover of Beach Boys' God Only Knows is better than the original. It's off of her 1967 album, Dry Your Eyes.

Luther Ingram is HIGHLY underrated. I only have his best of, but its no wonder Dilla ssampled "To The Other Man'

I really am not that into the beach boys, but my man Bullion cut up Pet Sounds in a way thats damn sexy. You can pick up Pet Sounds In The Key of Dee at my site, internettal L's. thanks for tha wilson pikett

I've really been enjoying this Fraser & Debolt album, as posted and recommended by Grown So Ugly.

Also, Dave Evans' Elephantasia (from Time Has Told Me).

And thanks to the others for the Darondo recommendation.
