Familia Souldies Vol 25 - Doing Our Thing With Pride


Well, Well - who'd have believed it; the Familia has joined the Quarter Century Club !

From humble beginnings - a love of the music, an enthusiastic crew and a lot of whipping - we've managed to produce 25 of these bad boys over the past few years. That's some achievement when there are quite a few people involved and deadlines to be met. Most of the Familia made it in this time round; my thanks to them for their great picks. The G MAN has been doing his cover thing with us all of the way - we're grateful for your greatness yet again, G MAN ! 

We hope you enjoy our latest opus - it sounds pretty darned good to my ears, but maybe I'm a bit biased.  Let us know; it helps us to keep that pride and enthusiasm fired up ! As usual, there are scans in the package.

PS I know how to spell GUINNESS, having drunk gallons of the stuff over the years; so don't blame me for the writers' spelling on track #1. RossyBoy
