Soul Clouds And Showers

The end of summer is near and to be honest there are a few dark clouds in my personal life as well these days. When I look outside rain is heavily falling on the streets. People are rushing home with their umbrellas as weapons against nature. Rain and the threat of rain are the main themes of these soul songs. The picture is done by Cuba Gallery. Enjoy!

A great selection Eddy! I was listening tonight as I was driving home in the pouring-rain and I almost didn't want to get home!
Many highlights especially Silvetti, Dee Dee Brigewater & George Benson - I've never heard his version of "Rainy night in Georgia" before, it's wonderful! I love Randy Crawford's version and have been meaning to play it on my show for ages!
