A New Cratedigger Mix -- Down and Dirty

This time around in cratedigger labs, I mixed it up a bit and there is a mixture of soul, funk and more jazz grooves than I have thrown down in the past.

I have been working on the new gear to get the best sound, so I hope that I was successful. I think I made all the fades...

I call it "Down and Dirty," Dig It!

Here is the track list:
01 Intro Christopher Recordings
02 Here Come The Judge Shorty Long Soul
03 Sho Nuff Jimmy McGriff Sunset
04 A Funky Space Reincarnation Part II Marvin Gaye Tamla
05 Cloud Nine Temptations Gordy
06 Huracan Cal Tjader Crystal Clear
07 Hey Big Brother Rare Earth Rare Earth
08 Party Freaks Pt 2 Miami Drive
09 Hey Mr. DJ Bobby Moore Checker
10 Kufanya Mapenzi (Makin Love) Ramsey Lewis Columbia
11 Got Pleasure Ohio Players Westbound
12 Stop Her On Sight (SOS) Edwin Starr Ric-Tic

This mix was compiled from all original vinyl sources, most of them being the 7 inch 45 variety. The records themselves were found in the bottom of dusty crates in and around Chicago and the northern IL area.

Also, please leave a comment, literally 100s of folks are downloading my mixes, but I am getting hardly any feedback.

RB...I've been looking forward to hearing a new mix with the upgraded eqip. I've only got one belt drive turntable and have been thinking about getting a couple of new direct drives. Will give this mix a listen tomorrow. I know what you mean about the lack of feedback. But, I keep seeing loads of downloads and the visitor counter keeps rolling so that helps me think I'm not wasting my time. I suppose if no one was getting the mixes that it would be bit discouraging. Anyway, I'll show a little love and say I totally dig what you do and this is definitely one of my favorite spots. All the best and keep doin' your thing!

Peace and SOUL,
Dave...

...and you know I am always down.

I agree, eBay is the DEVIL! I'd much rather rummage through the boxes at the Guru's and El Suprimo's. Craig's Records By Mail is cool when I can afford the prices.

Keep the hits comin'. I'll keep comin' back.

Peace and blessings.

Cool mix of genres in this. I am a crate digger myself, going to garage sales is my special thing to do. Bless you for sharing.
