Welcome!!

This is my first blogsite and I'm hoping it can be a happy place for both myself and visitors. I'm not quite ready to post yet but when I am, here's what to expect ... 


Gusto's Groovy Gumbo: 
An open ended series of makeshift compilations primarily from my collection of Northern and Southern Soul, Deep Soul, Funk, Gospel Soul, Group Soul, R'n'B, Popcorn, with a dash of Souljazz, Motown, Modern Soul and DooWop for good measure.

I have been collecting from various contributors for quite a while now and am very grateful for their efforts. However, there are very few dedicated soul blogs (that I know of) and if there is one thing that irks me about the vast amounts of available soul/funk/r'n'b compilations out there, is the segregation based on specific genre, label or location of artists featured. I would like to throw all the fore mentioned genres (by both classic and obscure artists) all together and churn out some tasty treats to groove with. Download links provided. Correctly tagged MP3 files with the best bitrate possible is my medium of choice ... you dig!?
