GGG Presents New Recipes Volume 01

Happy New Year my fellow soulies ... well almost!
So whilst spending the majority of my time searching, digging for and unearthing hidden gems from 40-60 years back it's easy to sometimes overlook the abundance of great soul/funk revivalists and survivalists keeping the faith alive and well today. Since the turn of this recent century there has been a revitalizing resurgence of 60/70s style soul and funk artists bombarding the airwaves, television and even the silver screen with heavy hitters like Lee Fields, the late Sharon Jones and Charles Bradley (RIP) leading the charge! Sticking to the same mixed bag Soul/Funk/R&B format you've come to expect, I've whipped up an old familiar favorite here but with the freshest of ingredients. I'll likely be doing more of these in the future with a focus on tracks in the traditional vein but released post-2000 but this introductory volume is primarily tracks released within the past year or two. so without further ado.... enjoy!
