Steamy Soul Funk & Disco Part 2

When I finished this mix I realized there were a lot of trumpet players in it (Herb Alpert, Eddie Henderson, Tom Browne), which makes this 'steamy' mix, even more steamy! One of the most outstanding funky tracks on this second part of 'Steamy Soul Funk & Disco' is ‘Soul train’ from Little Richard. This is what Derek’s Daily 45s has to say about it:
"Even though Little Richard's career never recovered commercially after his abrupt departure from the music business in 1957, the man cut some of the hottest wax of his career during the 1966-1968 period (including the incredible "I Need Love").
The Chicago session features the Jackie Wilson/Brunswick records house band (that later became Syl Johnson's Pieces Of Peace) scorching away, Richard testifying (and laying out a fabulous signature WOO at the end), driven steadily by the bubbling bass of Bernard Reed, and produced by the great Carl Davis. What a team, what a record!"

If you like this 'trumpeters' mix, check out the saxophone part of 'Steamy Soul Funk & Disco' as well. Enjoy!
