Master AUD recording

**mp3 samples provided (as always) in the Comments section**

If you like Motown or Philly soul/R&B mixed with some other funky stuff like KC and the Sunshine Band, then The Sensational Soul Cruisers are EXACTLY what you need! These guys have been a mainstay in the NJ/PA/NY area for well over 20 years and they are top-notch performers. Do yourself a favor and check them out live (if you can)...and buy their CDs, too. I own them all!

On the web:

The International Flavour Festival was held in Red Bank's municipal parking lot along White Street. I would say there were easily a few thousand people in attendance on this sunny April afternoon. It was extremely crowded near the stage area so recording conditions weren't exactly optimal. However, I still managed to get a nice-sounding recording. I changed positions during "Blame It On The Boogie" (track 08); the first part of the recording (until that point) is ever-so-slightly bass-heavy but after that the recording has more high end. In any event, it's all good...

If you like this torrent, won't you please take a moment to post a comment on the board? It only takes a moment, and believe me, it takes A LOT longer to prepare/upload a show for others to enjoy than it does to download and run.
