Between celebrating today's Thanksgiving holiday with loved ones I take a break to give thanks to all the great music in my life; for if it were not for that music my life to date would be a whole lot emptier. Come think of it my home would be a hell of a lot emptier too since it is packed (literally) with a life filled with record, tape, and CD collecting. But regardless of the square footage my physical music collection may take up I am so grateful to have had all this music in my life that has helped get through the bad times, and enhanced the good times. And so for this Thanksgiving blog I want to play a few loosely themed give thanks to music songs/videos - all on the classic soul/funk tip - below and all available at Amoeba. See you tomorrow, Saturday, or Sunday at one of the three Amoeba stores - Hollywood, Berkeley, San Francisco - for this special Thanksgiving Record Store Day / Black Friday Weekend @ Amoeba 11/23 - 11/25. Thank-you!
