It was a lot of fun and I'm glad that Tim let me step out of the cyber world to lay out some real-life soul evangelism :) It was also great to meet some new friends who came from Macon to check it all out. There was a crazy lady there, too, who was trying to get too close to me on the dance floor, but that's a different story for another time (haha).
Today's selection was played late in the first set. R&B legend Bobby Marchan laid down a lot of good but under-appreciated dancers in the '60s on Dial, Cameo and Gamble that are worth checking out. "Shake Your Tambourine" was released on Cameo and features a great groove and fun vocals from Marchan.
