Oh hell yeah

One of the great things about soul music is that there's so damn much of it, that you can go through life and constantly find new stuff that just knocks you out. Sometimes, those tracks are hiding in plain sight, and when you come across them, it's such a great feeling. It's kind of like when you search ebay for all the alternate misspellings of "Vespa" and find some crazy rarity for super cheap that nobody else knows about.

That's where this next track I'm diggin' on came from. It showed up as the lead track on episode #2 of soul_stepfather's awesome podcast and it just knocked me right in half. This is the second Otis Redding to do such a thing to me by the way.

The track is Loving by the Pound by Otis Redding, and I'll be looking for an mp3 of it to share. In the meantime, it's on Rhapsody, so if you go over to www.rhapsody.com and create yourself a free account, you can then stream the track in your browser, for free. Our link generator isn't working right now, so I can't link you direct to it, but if you do a search on Otis Redding, get to the Remember Me album, and it's like the second or third track.

All I can say is... damn.
