Easy Scholar,

Lovely drop again my friend, and the video action this time around is tight. YouTube on a Sunday afternoon... doesn't get much better!

Keep up the good work and I hope that things are cool with you.



Travis said...

One of my favorite features on Souled On, good stuff and thanks for the Gene Harris track.

Satchmo said...

may the lord be with you. and also, i hate to say it, but zshare is a piece of shit. What happened to divshare??? RAAAR

Tony said...

thanks for the shout out scholar. you the man brother, keep up the good work

paul said...

brilliant again.
i had to get "What it is" off a fufustew mix as well, i couldn't find it anywhere.
apparently that temptations album is hard to come by.

Zilla Rocca said...

I'm pretty sure the MF Doom/Dangermouse remix of Zero 7's "Somersault" was the 100 millionith download on iTunes a few years ago.

Scholar said...

Dan---Hey Mr. Love. I think that's the most videos I ever put in a single post. I was worried it was overkill, so I'm glad you appreciated it. Couldn't resist the last one---nothing's better than Soul Train and big hair.

Travis---The Gene Harris was absolutely, 100% for you. Wasn't sure if you had that track or not, but you've been talking about him lately, so...

Satch---Thank you for asking the Lord to be with me, cousin. I feel blessed.

As far as Z-Share goes, I know---it's shitty. When I used divShare, I got a complaint about that. I'm too cheap to pay for anything. Now what?

Anyway, hope all's well at the couch. Holla @ me.

Tony---I haven't figured out the answer to your question yet---a shout in your honor was the least I could do.

Paul---Wow. The internet can be such a small world despite its enormity. I read Fufu all of the time---Vincent is like family 'round here. However, I actually got that track from a Canadian reader who I swapped some mp3s with a few weeks ago. He's a Temps fan and I specifically asked him for that joint because I have never owned the Solid Rock LP. I could tell it came from a mix, but I didn't realize it was Vincent's. Thanks for the props and info. Paul---and gratitude for the joint V if that was from a Fufu mix.

By the way Vincent(if you happen to read this)---I'm working on that project for you. Should have it for you in a few days.

Zilla---No shit? I like that joint a lot, but truthfully, I'm not crazy about that woman's voice. It annoys and compels me at the same time. Thought a few people might want to pick it up, though. I was sure you were going to hate on that Mo Green remix...haha.

Satchmo said... sharebee even? Every time an ad on zshare comes on and freezes my firefox i feel a little bit like mike gundy.

paul said...

Hey Scholar,

4 Brothers have just uploaded The Temptations - Solid Rock if you are interested - very hard to come by.



Scholar said...

Satch---I'll put that in my blunt my blunt and smoke it. Maybe I'll switch things up around here pretty soon. You know you can e-mail me if you want something that's causing you problems, nephew.

Paul---Thank you just doesn't seem good enough. Much, much, much appreciated.

The Gosub Routine said...
