  2. just listening to this now. and thank you. i sometimes go in to look for 45s and i never know what i'm looking for. by definition, a lot of the good stuff is obscure hence...i waste a lot of money on poor quality vinyl. so it's great to have this introduction to lost soul classics. now i'll be better equipped, and the mission to keep soul music alive is well served. by teh way, is there any chance you can list the breakpoints in your mix. the reason is that people can use this to create .cue files and split the tracks out. here's an example from a great blog.
