93 Spotisfaction Monday – 2nd August 2010 – Kev Atkinson

Morning all. Didya miss me? Today is a shock to the system, fo sho – first day back in the day job after two weeks off, and I”™m very much not with it yet. This weekend saw the wedding of two good friends of mine and therefore I”™m in a very good mood today. So, in celebration of this rarity, I”™ve picked Kev”™s soul playlist for today”™s aural consumption.

Congratulations to Dr Dave and Sarah Monks, with love from Spotisfaction.

Inspired slightly by the Right Reverend Lavelle”™s playlist on 30th April I thought I”™d bring a bit more Soul to the party. I am not a big fan of modern soul and R&B so what we have here is a collection of classic Soul, many of which (if not all) I am sure you”™ll recognise. Haven”™t got much to say about the tracks to be honest as they are all classics but any cricket fans out there will know why I included Soul Limbo by Booker T. & The MG”™s.

Keep it real, or at least not entirely fake
