Just in time to open the holiday season, the krew of Familia Souldiez have come together and share another set of awesome tracks.

What makes this series so unique is that the collaborators are from the four corners of this country and abroad with diverse musical tastes and a great thirst & knowledge when it comes to the genre of soul.

Familia Souldiez Volume 11 entitled "Love Is For Fools" takes soul through all of it's paces - Northern Soul, Sweet Soul, Funk & Group Harmony. As with previous volumes in this series, the krew has come up with a set of tunes worthy of any major release.

Many thanks go out to RossyBoy for passing me the baton and allowing me to head-up this project and to GMAN for providing the inspiration and the dynamite cover.

Special thanks to Mello, DustyRose, MzO, BillyMac, Chi-Town & BrownBoy for their contributions & taking the time out of their busy lives to make this happen.

Give it a spin & let us know what you think. No turkeys here. LOL!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!
