Hi, my name is Greg. This project is the result of my ever-growing passion for soul music.
I grew up in Winnipeg, Canada, and during the 1960’s played saxophone in a number of bands there. Back then, the only soul songs to make it into the city were the records that managed to hit the pop music charts. But, as soon as I heard the likes of Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, Sam and Dave, Wilson Pickett and a few others, I was hooked.
Later, the introduction of CDs enabled me to listen to much of the main body of great soul music as more and more real classics were re-issued. After many decades of experiencing this brilliant music, my search for soul gems still continues, and each new discovery yields its own special reward.
