Yeah right so we all know Soundcloud is cracking down some, but here’s a free edit i put together of this absolute soul gem by the one and only AL GREEN – FULL OF FIRE. DJ Friendly and all that jazz >> Download here
Here’s the original version on youtube – Straight soul goodness.
mix at the bottom 🙂
I made this vintage soul mix late last year and wasn’t completely happy with a few of the transitions so i did what i normally do and i just scrapped it. I found it again a few days ago and gave it another listen on my way to work and really dugg it. I guess as a DJ you always want to put out your best stuff and make your sound as ‘perfect’ as you can; there’s always that fine line between what you choose is acceptable for public listening and what isn’t. Sometimes i have to remind myself that this is soul music – the music wasn’t created to be perfect, it is what is is flaws and all, and that’s what gives the music it’s character.
o here it is, taken from a forgotten pile -single take, unpolished, and unforgiving.
It features a number of my favourite soul tracks (with a bitta funk for some added flavour) from artists such as Keith Mansfield Orchestra, Marlena Shaw, Dionne Warwick, Temptations, Oddisee, Detriot Emeralds, West Coast Revival, Esther Phillips, Discoettes, LTD, The J.B;s, The Flamingos. Chaka Khan and more. Thanks for listening.
