Another Thanksgiving Funk 45 mix!!!


Yes yes, this time by Brad Hales – founder/owner of Peoples Records store in Detroit. In this case though, the ONLY way you can get a copy at this moment is if you go to his record store and ask him for a copy. It’s a free CD-R, but he would like to hand it to you himself. Let me tell you though… it’s worth your time. Boy, is it!!!

Brad Hales is known worldwide for his record shop and the constant flow of quality music artifacts from the days of Motown. He DJs at the ever-popular Funk Nights in Detroit and at the Ann Arbor Soul Club. Actually, maybe you can get a copy of his mix if you attend one of his parties. Anything’s possible.

It should be posted publicly on a homey site soon, but I’d go today to the store if you can. I will tease you with a couple heaters from it:

Sorry if this does not show up for you, DivShare is being finicky today. Just click the link above.

My jam of the three is the Johnny Morrissette “I’m Hungry” track. I love irreverence and the lyrics definitely give me my fill of it. You can’t beat horn-driven funk with proper due to the drummer, so I know folks will love the Eddy Jacobs Exchange. The Hot Stuff record had a world feel to it, which intrigued me. I didn’t find much information on any of these, so if you have any – PLEASE SHARE!

I know this isn’t enough, especially for those that live nowhere near Detroit. Well, tough poop. You have to go to Brad’s shop at 3161 Woodward Ave; buy some records while you’re at it. They are all 20% off until the end of the year.

*sigh* Fine, leech! Brad also has a podcast. He archives raer Northern Soul that he sells and sometimes he throws up the occasional mix. Make sure you support your local record store.
