Thanks to Fufu Stew, Fleamarket Funk, Funky 16 Corners, this is tomorrow, and Soul Brotha's Put the Needle in The Groove for inspiration.

Happy 4th. Be safe.

N.B. It appears that the divshare link above is AOK, but the zshare version of the file is shortened. I tried to reupload, but it continues to chop my file in half. There is a save option within Divshare. Sorry about the technical difficulties.

hate to say it, but your file is truncated... divshare player seems to work fine; i'll check it out later today...

I think that Divshare is ok, it seems that zshare truncated the file. I am in the process of re uploading.

Thanks for the heads up.

This is one SMOKIN' mix. Great selection of tracks. Bobby Bland's "Lovelight" is one of my all-time favs. Never heard the Ike and Tina version of "Mosquito's Tweeter" Very HIP! Keep groovin, Brutha!!
Peace and SOUL,

Thanks for the props, Dave. Funkier than a Mosquiters Tweeter is the flip to Ike & Tina's Proud Mary 45. Should be very easy to find. I agree it is a great track.
