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.
