If you're a true soul music fan, which I assume you are if you're reading this blog, you need to get with it and get on board the soul train at This site is the brainchild and labor of love of Bob Davis, soul music expert based in New Jersey and an outstanding supporter of the Soulsville Foundation/Stax Museum. You'll see more about that if you keep scrolling down.

Bob is THE MAN when it comes to soul music - classic, neo, nu, funk, you name it. He constantly reviews albums and concerts, conducts interviews with hundreds of soul music folks and posts them on line, and works tirelessly on his newsletter, which is read by thousands of people around the world. He has an online radio show, online LP compilations, and is one of the most respected people in the world of soul music. If the man ever sleeps, your guess is as good as mine as to when that would be!

So go to his site, sign up for the newsletter, and enjoy!

As for his thoughts on the Soulsville Foundation and Stax Museum, here are some words from his newsletter today:

As you may or may not know, the Soulsville Foundation is the name of the non-profit organization that operates the Stax Museum of American Soul Music, the Stax Music Academy, and The Soulsville Charter School. They have a mission of celebrating soul music's rich legacy and mentoring the at-risk youth in our community.

As music fans we often complain about this that or the other. We complain about EVIL record labels, EVIL radio networks, EVIL technology companies and all other EVIL doers that we think are out to destroy our culture in exchange for EVIL corporate profits. Well here is something that you can personally become involved with that isn't EVIL. It's certainly Black music based. It's directly connected to our musical legacy. It aims to correct EVIL in our society( and you don't even have to leave the comfort of your own home in order to do so.....)

And even if you are a completely self centered person and don't care about correcting EVIL. Think about it this way...(it will make YOU a better person....)

Thanks in advance...--Bob Davis

Remembered the first time I played the game and bought Lineage 2 gold , it is about two years. Since the first day I bought Lineage gold , we should know that the day will come sooner or later. And I will not leave my Lineage money . My friends forever, even though I will leave you one day, I will remember you forever. At that time, I was a naive; I must used money to have Lineage 2 money , as that I would not depend on myself. But I was not regret to buy it. It is just a way bring me to the success.
