For a long time I struggled to categorize the music of Norma Tanega. Particularly while I was doing my soul radio show. Can I get away with playing this on my show? She was really a one of a kind artist who didn't really fit into a specific category. Her lyrics and vocals really lean more towards early 60s folk, but clearly the instrumentation of some of her records qualify as soul or at least gospel-influenced. Also she was on Bob Crewe's record label and he was sometimes soul, but sometimes not. So I waffled a little bit with that one for a while. Ultimately I decided to follow my heart and play whatever I want. I like pushing boundaries.
The Record of the Day sounds like a folk song making sweet sweet love to a soul song. Enjoy the intermingling!

I'm excited to highlight some of my favorite records in a variety of genres (soul, R&B, classic country, rockabilly, oldies, garage rock, etc). These won't all necessarily be "dance" records per se. They will all be records that I believe deserve a special listen. I simply love good music, rare or not. Hopefully you will spend some time here and love music right along with me! Lets give this a shot!
