A word on links: I don't want to over-run this site with links to other music but if you have a gem that you think others shouldn't miss out on then please let me know and i'll add a link. Here is a link to one of ion's friends; 'JC' who runs a label called Here & Now Recordings. Lots of great jazz and house artists seem to record for the label and he has a radio show that is definitely worth a listen. So here goes...enjoy
Also couldn't not mention the 'SoulPower' movie that I watched the other day. If you haven't seen it then look it up. A concert was put on prior to the Rumble in the Jungle between Ali and Foreman with acts like James Brown, B.B. King, Fania Allstars and a really powerful vocal display from Bill Withers. All original footage and some great moments in it. My personal favourite is watching a barechested Withers, poolside, calmly tucking into his breakfast while an entourage surround Ali to hear him wax lyrical. Gold.
have a good week all and in the words of the 'Mack' "easy does it"

Regards mp3 quality I concur with the previous post. A rate of 320kbps would be favourable.
Files can be uploaded to one of several sites for free and without having to sign up.
Or you could get a soundcloud.com account which will not only host the files but allow you to add tracklists and stream them as with mixcloud.
As you were.

Right on brother! Our man the Duke has spent quite some time and effort to set this all up for us. He has, of course, held my hand through the uploading-posting process. If you don't have a Duke of your own to help, then I'm sure just imagining him holding your hand will be enough to see you through. Get up, mix up and upload for the Duke!!!
