Friday 45: Lee Jones & The Sounds of Soul

Beautiful bit of flipside soul from Lee Jones & The Sounds Of Soul today.

Released in 1968 on Amy Records, this is the only release you can find for the group and that is because it is actually The Masqueraders, who had a prolific career throughout the 60s and 70s. To avoid contractual problems, they released this song under another alias.

Heavy piano and haunting vocals make this a favourite deep soul 7″.

Guest Mix: Çerikunda & Grup Ses (Turkish Gems, Beats & Edits)

Today, I am excited to share with you a really special guest mix from Çerikunda & Grup Ses.

Together they present the annual “Turkish Diggin’ Report”, a series of mixes of rare and obscure Turkish Folk, Psych, Funk and Rock from the 60s, 70s and 80s. And on 2016s “Alliance” album, Grup Ses twisted snippets of obscure Turkish music into something unique and new.

For this mix, they blend a selection of rare Turkish gems together with new edits and unreleased beats. A serious treat to behold.
