That awesome title comes from 70s Philly soul act First Choice. The title good. The song not so much.

MP3: Avec Plaisir- Oasis Dub (Jacques Bonhomme Re-edit)

If you’ve read this site more than once you know John Holt is one of my favorite Jamaicans. “Up Park Camp” is the name of a military base, so I assume he’s saying he doesn’t want to be sent to boot camp.

MP3: John Holt- Up Park Camp

Gotta stay on the soul tip. Best know for the more upbeatGrazing in the Grass, this is From the same 1969 LP Grazin’:

MP3: The Friends of Distinction- Going In Circles

MP3: United 8- Getting Uptown (To Get Down)

I’m sure you haven’t heard unless you listen to Philly urban radio, but the West Oak Lane Jazz & Arts Festival is coming again in June. Every year the lineup is stellar- heavy on jazz and New Orleans brass bands and it usually features some of the biggest names in soul, all for free. I’ve never been but this year I might have to head up there.
