COSMIK SOUL: MALE VOICES OF OLD MIXX!
I used to do a series of mixes I called, "Cosmik Soul" back in the day, so I decided to bring them back starting with this one! My homegirls Sharnise a.k.a Shar Jones and Akua know what I am talking about!
Soul music has definitely changed over the last 30 years. I've had the luxury of being old enough to appreciate the old stuff, but still young enough to enjoy the new and sometimes innovative changes in the soul music of today. For me, nothing brings a smile to my face like some old school soul though! I don't care where I am, or what I am doing, when certain songs come on it just brings a smile to my face. Usually, it takes me back to a place in my mind when things were fun and free. The times before I had to work for my money, buy my own food and wash my own clothes! Maybe one of those times when I was a youngster outside at night playing my favorite game, "Catch A Girl, Get A Girl!" What fun that was!! Remember that Bernard???
Anyway, since Easter this weekend, I thought I would post a mix of a few of my favorite old school soul cuts sang by men. These katz are the ones I play when I want to here some good ole' soul music! They never let me down either. I may not be in the mood for rap, jazz, reggae, house or neo, but I am always in the mood this type of old school! There is a soulful richness that will never be duplicated again in my opinion. Folks a like Anthony Hamilton and Van Hunt bring the fire by today's standards, but they are really immulating these artists in their own way. I will provide a tracklist at a later date, but here are some of the artists that are represented in this mix: Al Green, Teddy Pendergrass, The O'Jays, The Isley Brothers, Stevie Wonder, The Spinners, The Whispers, etc. Some of the songs I chose for this mix are not the most popular ones by them, but they are definitely classics in my ears!
Check it out and let me know what you think about these songs!
