Once again supporting my long-harbored theory that Philadelphia is the coolest city in the US. Fantastic post, thanks so much.

Damn, I'm only on #2 and already feel like this is where humanity peaked. How can it get better than slide steel funk?

It's like I've just been HANDED the playlist for my pirate radio station. Thanks, man!

(Oh, ummm . . . if anyone comes up in a white van, uhhh . . . I was just kidding about the whole . . . "pirate radio" thing. Heh. No, really. It was a joke. I swear.)

This stuff's all gold ... like having a quiet, laid-back neighbor that, you find out one day, has an immaculate ear and a tonna soul. Thanks for turn-on, inquilab!

Favorited. Great to hear some of the jazz-funk things that I haven't checked out since those days. The James Moody and Diz ones especially. They just don't do it like that anymore.
