Funk Soul Rare Groove


I recently invested in a large vinyl order from Luv n Haight records.   I also have been subscribing to the Numero Groups record subscription and have received some real cool records from them recently.  Both these label release very obscure and wonderful music.  Much of it in the funk, soul and rare groove vein.  I also recently watched an amazing documentary about Ahmet Ertegun called “The House That Ahmet Built”.  A very forward thinker, Ahmet built Atlantic Records by focusing on a vision of the future of music that was rock and roll, soul and funk.  He possessed great intelligence and insight in identifying and releasing great soul music.  With all of that inspiration, this week’s Twisted Groove features a bunch of rare groove, soul and funk from all the above sources among many others.  It is a super fun show. It is outta sight and dynomite.
