I have some interesting guests this time telling about their new product, and I'd like to emphasize that in each case the music is really, really good. Ronnie McNeir has released a new solo album, and inevitably we had a few words about Ronnie's past career and the Four Tops, too. Wendell B out of St. Louis surprised me with his thoroughly soulful and deep Southern soul CD.
Our recent acquaintance, Abraham "Smooth" Wilson, has dropped his "New York CD", and interestingly hot on the heels of his "West Coast CD." On top of that, there are as many as nineteen new Southern soul albums - some quite disappointing, but some remarkably impressive - nine recommended classic soul compilations, including the magnificent Fame box, and three books reviewed;
plus as a bonus my earlier interview with Larry Hamilton.
