I’m a New Orleans junkie…I simply cannot get enough of the city. I make at least one trip a year, and have tried (several times) to convince Mrs. Satisfied to move there. She claims we would turn into alchoholic sloths spending our nights (and days) in dank music halls. Sign me up, says I. Alas, it’s not to be, at least not now. So to make due I scout out obscure NOLA funk, r&b, and soul around town in record stores and online.
If you too have a New Orleans’ jones that needs itchin’, you are going to want to check out Dan Phillips’ Home Of The Groove. His MP3 blog hosts some great and hard to find cuts available for download with a brief history of the significance of each pick. Laissez les bon temps roulez.
