I’ve had a real blast the past couple of weeks doing posts for This Is Tomorrow and Got The Fever. This weeks guest post is just as special, and is sure to put the icing on the cake. Be sure to join me over at Souled On Music this weekend for what I consider to be my best recipe yet. I have to give a huge round of thanks to the Scholar for the open invitation, and I certainly intend to take him up on the offer with posts featuring some of my all time favourite Hip Hop classics, as well as more of those wonderful Funk and Soul 45s. Stay tuned for updates as they become available.
I want to also extend an invitation to all of you to join me this weekend in celebration of the 130th anniversary of the phonograph. This celebration is brought to you through the hard work and dedication of Mr. J.A. Bartlett, owner and operator of The Hits Just Keep On Coming. Below is just a partial list of those who will be participating. Now I have no idea what these folks intend to post, but I can assure you of one thing. The love for the vinyl record that consumes us all will certainly be on display in one form or another. If you are a blogger and you are not a part of the list, the more the merrier so by all means, hop on board.
