Professor Eddy’s Road To Philadelphia (Tribute to Teddy and Philly part 2)

My tribute to Teddy and Philly was featured on Mixcloud and a huge success, so why not think like Sylvester Stallone and make a follow-up? And here it is: another road to Philadelphia. There are two or three tracks that are technically no exponents of the so-called Philly soul, but they sound just the same. One of them is Kai Warner’s ‘On the road to Philadelphia’. He’s the brother of German conductor James Last and the song is the title track from his homage to the Philly sound. I saved the best for last: I know nothing about the singer, but the Dianne Steinberg track is really the bomb! I hope you’ll enjoy this new mix as much as part 1. Picture by PaPeR.cLiP

Am I being dense or is there no way to download your sets from Mixcloud? These tracklistings look soooo good but I have no way to listen at work unless I can download and put on my ipod. :(
