The World According To Jonesy – Radio Show #35

Jonesy continues the saga with a supremely rare selection of funk and soul tracks from the 60′s and 70′s. Kicking off the show with several mellow cuts from Black Ivory, Lawrence Hilton Jacobs, and Linda Lewis, Jonesy lights the set on fire with grooves from the Bionic Boogie and Coatimundi. It’s always an enlightening experience when you let Jonesy take you on a sonic journey deep into the forgotten sonic realms of our funk and soul forefathers.
