Soul Sides Sampler
It took a while, but another record has finally knocked Fox Confessor Brings The Flood from the heaviest rotation slot here at R&S Labs. Of course, I'm talking about "Soul Sides Volume 1." Far out and solid from start to finish.
And what an odd route to get here: Oliver "DJ O-Dub" Wang keeps a scholarly soul blog, issues a compilation album, said album gets added as a Rhapsody exclusive, shows up on the New Releases feature page, then cements itself in my Play tab.
Somewhere a snake is chewing on its own ass pondering the moral to this story. In the meantime, here's a sampler, but go ahead and listen to the whole shebang. And thank you to annotater Sam Chennault for pointing out that Clarence Reid is Blowfly. Next I'm moving on to the one Reid compilation in Rhapsody, which so far is more consistent and original than Blowfly's output (nothing against his vital classics, of course).
