Greetings all.
Just a short wrap up of last night’s Asbury Park 45 Sessions.
We were working with a truncated crew, resulting in an extra long set by yours truly (I almost ran out of records?!?).
There were lots of old favorites and a grip of new acquisitions (Many of which are waiting in the on deck circle to be blogged herein). I even got to spin a bunch of Hammond sides and hot little Prestige soul jazz mini-set toward the end.
The crowd was dancing (some of them anyway) and it was a great way to kick off the summer season.
Remember that this Monday my guest set will be dropping over at DJ Prestige’s Fleamarket Funk.
I’ll leave you with a repost of the Soul Brothers Six classic. See you on Monday.

    I always love your set lists – I just wish I could get to the gigs, but it’s long way from the UK to Asbury Park. I guess the podcasts are the next best thing to being there.
