Here’s a biggin’ that you sho’ nuff’ will be diggin’ from friend to GFM DJ Polished Solid a tribute to the one and only Don Cornelius!
From the show notes…
(September 27, 1936 – February 1, 2012)
This is the first mix of two in tribute to Don Cornelius. My childhood was filled with many hours of dutifully watching Soul Train, ironically, the soul train line being the centerpiece for me and not the guest artists. This week we are keeping it in the groove, and next week we’ll return to No Turn Unstoned’s usual eclectic format. It goes without saying that for both sets the theme is SOUL of course.
There are four soul train themes in this mix:
1973-1975′s TSOP (The Sound of Philadelphia), composed by Gamble and Huff and recorded by
Philadelphia soul studio group M.F.S.B. with vocals by the Three Degrees.
1975-1976′s Soul Train ’75 by The Soul Train Gang
1976-1978′s Soul Train ’76 (Get on Board), also by The Soul Train Gang
1980-1983′s Up on Soul Train by The Whispers
