Reading blogs can become time-consuming, so I have really been enjoying using the efficency of the newly discovered Google Reader. It’s so efficient, that I of course added more sites to read regularly. One of them is Its a fantastic blog if you are a fan of Soul, R&B, Jazz or Hip-Hop.

I found the site through an out-of-print compilation cd that the site put together.  Soul Sides Vol. 2 has fantastic version of I Want To Hold Your Hand by Al Green.  Listen to it if you haven’t yet heard it.

Also through the site, I found a Chicago “record company” called the Numero Group.  The company is a group of record collectors who re-release great songs that didn’t get the popularity they deserved.  A recent release is a book photos and LP called Light: On The South Side that focuses on the Chicago’s South Side night clubs between 1975-77. Take lisen to some of the samples they have there.
