Familia Souldiez Vol 8 - The Trackz Of Our Tearz

You know how it is when a large family tries to get together. Something always gets in the way of the whole crowd managing to get to the party. Maybe work interferes; perhaps someone is away traveling. But, on the other hand, sometimes a prodigal son will turn up unexpectedly. Most of the regulars are here for our six-monthly offering. G Man has dropped another great cover. The autumn barbecue has hamburgers sizzling; there are cold beers and chilled wine. So let's just get this Familia party busting loose ! As always these are the Firmest tunes we can come up with. Let's hope there are new ones here for you and that you appreciate what the krew has brought to the table. I've put a bonus opener in to set the mood. Enjoy ! RossyBoy
