it's a soulful world

Thanks to those who have left comments. S'good to know there's folk out there.

Stax/Volt put out some of the best soul tunes in the 60's to the early 70's, featuring the Staple Singers, Isaac Hayes, Booker T and the MG's, Otis Redding, Sam and Dave, and tons more. Read about the label here.

One of my favorite groups of all time is the Staple Singers...a perfect blend of the gospel and secular.

Isaac Hayes is one bad....xmas fan.

Both of the following are taken from the outstanding Stax/Volt release It's Christmas Time Again.

Santa Claus wants some lovin'

Isaac Hayes: The Mistletoe and Me (mp3)
