The Funky Cuts
I started off with 76 tracks that had originally appeared officially on CDs and I'v whittled that number down to 28 of which I'll probably manage to play twenty in this week's edition of the Funky Cuts. Some of them have had official releases on 45 whilst others have been bootlegged. Most of them are from Johnny Otis's Dig label from the era before R&B LPs. Records were 10" in circumference and played at 78 RPM. Studio sessions aimed to get three songs down and pick two of them for a release. Some were never released until the ays of CDs and the vaults were opened up big time.
This afternoon I'm featuring Fifties R&B and sixties soul with recordings by Eddie Holman, Big Maybelle, Diana Ross and a number of singers with even more ludicrous made up names. Dessa Ray for instance. Tune in and enjoy the music.13:00 - 14:00
