Daddy Vegas kicks off what will hopefully be a monthly series of
podcasts, with a diverse mix of soul and funk from the four corners
of the globe. Highlights include Betty Chung's take on "Bang Bang",
some Guadaloupe jazz and mod-ish RnB, before things round out with
some tough minor key blues.
More a mixtape than a podcast, I put this together in winter of
2006/7 as a kind of "driving home for Christmas" CD for friends.
There's very little funk on it, more big southern country rock than
anything else, featuring some lesser known Dylan, Buffy Saint
Marie, Gram Parsons, then some Miriam Makeba, Bo Diddley, John Lee
Hooker and the mighty Garnett Mimms.
