“SoulTracks” – A Musical Hub Where R&B Music Thrives… write up by Author, G. D. Grace

If you love R&B Music from yesteryear and today, then you’ll love SoulTracks.  I stumbled upon this wonderful website while searching for music one afternoon back in 2008.  For a music lover like me, it was like striking gold in the golden hills of California again.  SoulTracks offers music lovers the option of purchasing hard to find music and the artist archive is absolutely mind-boggling.

You can find music from every period in R&B music, from The Temptations and The Four tops, to Donna Summer and Gloria Gayner, to The Debarges and The Deele, to Faith Evans and Mary J Blige, to Hall & Oats and George Micahel, to Luther Vandross and Will Downing.  I only scratched the surface of what is available on this magnificent website.

In addition to well-known artists, SoulTracks also introduces you to other talented artists who are on the rise — it’s the place where I first heard of Heston Frances and his “Story Teller” CD and Darien with his “If These Walls Could Talk” CD.  The prices are surprisingly competitive and sometimes even lower than what you would find at non-online retailers, and the quality of the product is very good.

The added treat on this website is that it provides bios and up-to-dates statuses on many of the artists featured. If you know about SoulTracks, then you know what I’m talking about already; if you don’t, go on ahead and indulge in this musical smorgasbord.  Trust me, it will satisfy your musical appetite.

About G. D. Grace of California

After the release of his fifth self-published novel, “Ripped & Ready (season 3)” GD ramped up for a new endeavor in radio, and on September 2, 2010 his first #BlogTalkRadio show premiered. His first two guest were two literary colleagues from two different sides of the tracks — one a former prison inmate-hustler, single father, turned author — the other, an accredited teacher and single father first time author. The intense on-air climate of cultural differences on the show, at one point, became thick enough to slice with a butter knife, however, it was a very successful event. Despite the clash over marketing approaches both authors remained professional and the outcome was a highly entertaining and interesting show. The seasons that followed incorporated talent from all walks of creativity, so in addition to the authors, GD’s guest lineup included poets and recovering addicts, motivational speakers and entrepreneurs, filmmakers and professionals in sports training and health, and also established artists from highly successful television shows, as well as, NAACP & Grammy Winners. Many shows gave us an inside glimpse inside the lives of legends from Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Smokey Robinson, Ray Goodman & Brown, Bruce A. Hawes (extraordinary writer for the Sounds of Philadelphia), Gerald Alston of The Manhattans, The Delphonics, Howard Hewett, and Chris Jasper of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame recognized Isley Brothers. Legends of literary Stanley Bennett Clay and James Earl Hardy also brought their distinct creative prowess to the show, as did professionals from the Broadway stage. GD’s show eventually caught the attention of World Media and through this friendship many of the legends mentioned above were tapped to be guests on the show. His friend, and often times, mentor, Wayne Barros became an influential part of the legacy that he was creating one show at time. His friendship, love, and direction helped enforce an inner-confidence in GD which allowed him to stretch his producing skills so the show would have an entertaining variety for the live listener and archive listeners. Between the two audience variations the show has been listened to by over 40,000 people. It has been successful beyond GD’s wildest dreams, and as Season 6 approaches, the adrenalin within him increases. He begins assembling the guest list next month in April 2015, and…
