      Very informative. I am a collector with a passion for this type of soul/jazz/funk so please know that your efforts here are valued and deeply appreciated.

      I listened carefully to the Smokey Robinson track and could have sworn the begining was sampled by Ice Cube on the track "Dead Homiez".
