DJ Grizz- Billy Paul Mix

Apologies for its lateness (away on football duties last week) but i had to mark the passing of one of the great Soul voices of the 70's - Mr Billy Paul. Through his early jazz recordings to the collaborations with legendary writers/producers Gamble and Huff on the almighty Phillidelphia International label he was truly one of the icons of Soul and responsible for one the greatest love songs ever in Me and Mrs Jones.

My personal favorites are all here including Thanks For Saving My Life, the weekender anthem Bring The Family Back, a nod to his jazz roots in Billy Boy, another seduction standard in Lets Make a Baby and ending with his version of the wonderful This Is Your Life.

Back in a weeks time!
