For me, Memorial Day is a day to remember loved ones we have lost. On May 15,2014 I lost my brother Rudolph Raymond Aversa so I am dedicating this volume to Rudy.

Though my heart is sad I know that my brother would want me to carry as if he were still here because he is still here in spirit. I have added three songs to the end of this volume in his memory.

GET SOUL - Old School Soul Sampler


It doesn't matter whether you call it "Soul Music", "Old School" or "Urban" (a title I never could figure out) - To me, it's all related to Gospel & Blues and, as such remains a true black american art form. Throughout the years it has been synthesized, homogenized, proselytized, criticized, idolized, & analyzed. It's also been widely imitated -- without it, there would've been no Elvis & there would be no Rolling Stones & countless other bands who've felt it's influence. It has brought people of all races & religions together in song & dance, serving as a universal antidote for bigotry & ignorance - indeed a lofty achievement for an art form.

As you can see, this compilation was intended for DJ's/radio stations, etc. & was not for sale.
