Stop by The Junction Wednesday night. Got a set of rare Sabu Martinez lined up, recorded in Sweden after he relocated there in the early 70s. Plus, spiritual percussion from Mosahiko Togashi, more electric piano grooves from that great Emphasis reissue, and California soul from HP Riot. Dig it!

Funkiness looms Wednesday night on Soul Junction, as we debut an album from Mickey Murray that was so scarcely distributed in the early 70s that we may as well call it brand new! Plus, we'll of course pay respect to Johnny Otis, Jimmy Castor, and Etta James, three recently departed soul legends, and get into some more fuzzy blues from Albert Collins and Freddie King.
