In celebration of my 35th, I decided to share a present with ya’ll: a digitized copy of my first funk/soul/jazz mix-CD, Soul Symphony. I originally put this out back in the ’90s (at this point, I can’t even remember when) and have never brought it back into rotation. It was a concept mix of a sort and rather appropriate with Soul Sides itself since all the music on here was inspired by Sole Sides, the Bay Area indie hip-hop label whose name obviously inspired mine. Sample hounds will enjoy this but it’s also got some great songs regardless of how it’s been used by later producers. Unfortunately, I don’t have a tracklisting available – ya’ll will just have to piece it together yourselves ;).
