The Soul Mixtape's #Requestline - Selector Edition 2


DJ Grizz and I like to hand over the selecting reign's at soulnrnb.blogspot.com once in a while to those that know a good tune. Lorraine has pointed me in the direction of a track or two, so thought it might be cool for her to do the same for you.

Enjoy this Rare Groove, two step rarity extravaganza. Some of the tunes are so rare, they've got extra crackles!!! Thanks Lorraine for taking part!

If you think you've got the skills to deliver a playlist for a #Requestline mix, hit us up on the blog, on Twitter @SoulNRnB, or on Facebook. Social Media links are all on the sidebar.

And now.......for the music.

DJ Grizz - Soul to Reggae Mix

Reggae music going back to the 60's has a tradition of making a great job of covering Soul gems and here's 5 of my favourites side be side with their Soul originals ... its Soul to Reggae mix time!

We have 2 Reggae anthems to start in Country Living and Hurts So Good with their Soul counter-parts, next the Royalettes give us the first version of a tune spawned many covers including the Alton Ellis one featured, there's the peace anthem from Timmy Thomas and then Tinga, and we end with a soul club classic from William DeVaughn and the Cornel Campbell take on it.

Catch you in week but more good music is only days away.
