Familia Souldiez Vol 10 - Tricks Of The Trade

It's three months since our last outing of Familia Souldiez. Volume 9 yet again proved to be a winner with hundreds of downloads. But for some of our keen familia, three months waiting is just too long ! Let's hope you all feel the same ! Because we are gonna try to produce one of these bad boy volumes ONCE A MONTH from now on. A bit of a logistical nightmare, but hopefully our great family spirit can pull us through. The G MAN has come up with another masterful cover for "Tricks Of The Trade"; he will continue to be our regular cover artist. Regarding the theme, some of our brothers used their smarts to find titles with words from the theme in them; Guy, being a working man himself, concentrated on songs about trades or professions. But as the Wise Old Owl, Mello, pointed out, although the words "Trick" or "Trade" may not be in a song title or in the lyrics, a trick of the trade is also to come up with something new. So the rest of us just used this as an excuse to bring you some fine favorites or squirrelled-away rarities that we have been saving for just such an occasion as this. Let us know how we are doing with the series; it will help our motivation to keep producing the goods into the future. Enjoy the tunes ! RB
