  1. Really enjoying this great selection Moos – I can hear the influence of Louis Jordan on at least a couple of these tracks – Champion Jack Dupree and Ray Charles. Big thanks from MamboPete

  2. Great to see a track by Jerry Butler – he is so underrated. Just about my favourite soul artist. He’s a legend in the USA, but in the UK hardly anybody even knows his name.
