This has been on heavy rotation in the Lab office ever since we got the promo. It's one of those albums you can put on and know that every song is gonna be awesome, no fillers or skippers... basically, it rules. Soul Cal compiles the best releases from the Soul Cal label, which means you get the best rare soul and funky disco cuts circa 1971 to 1982. You can bet that each and every song on here is dripping with that vintage soul goodness - the kind that puts a smile on your face and makes it seem like the sun is shining on you (even when the weather sucks outside). Check out some of the office favorites like Record Player's "Free Your Mind," Rhthym Machine's "Put A Smile On Time," Mixed Feeling's "Sha La La," Luther Davis' "You Can Be A Star," or just click on any of the samples - they're all that good! Essential purchase for the soul enthusiast. Highly Recommended.
