  Welcome to Soul-Patrol Newsletter:As you all know, we are having some special chat sessions to celebrate Black History Month. However our celebration of Black History Month isn't limited to chat sessions. At this time we would like to spotlight a few of the organizations who we feel are doing good things on the internet and who have partnered with Soul-Patrol on many iniatives past, present and future!





The New Pittsburgh Courier :
is one of the oldest and most prestigious Black newspapers in the United States, with a rich and storied history. Pittsburgh attorney and journalist Robert L. Vann founded the Pittsburgh Courier in 1910. At a time when mainstream newspapers would not or could not solve the problems of the Black community or report news without bias, the Courier served as an alternative voice for Black Americans, focusing on issues that aroused awareness in a community just beginning to find its voice. The Courier, covering news around the world reached an all time high circulation of 450,000 with over 400 employees in 1948.

In 1966 John H. Sengstacke purchased the newspaper and renamed it the New Pittsburgh Courier. It became part of Sengstacke Newspapers (now Real Times, Inc.) - the largest and most influential Black newspaper chain in the country - which also includes the Chicago Daily Defender, Michigan Chronicle, Michigan Front Page and (Memphis) Tri-State Defender. Today the New Pittsburgh Courier continues to serve as a vehicle for Black expression, now publishing Award-Winning local editions twice a week on Wednesday and Saturday serving southwestern PA.





Black Rock Coalition:
The Black Rock Coalition (BRC) represents a united front of musically and politically progressive Black artists and supporters. The BRC was founded in the fall of 1985 in New York City with the purpose of creating an atmosphere conducive to the maximum development, exposure and acceptance of Black alternative music. The BRC seeks to foster cooperation among musicians and like organizations through networking and sharing resources. The BRC opposes those racist and reactionary forces within the American music industry, which undermine and purloin our musical legacy and deny Black artists the expressive freedom and economic rewards that our Caucasian counterparts enjoy as a matter of course.

Rock and roll--like practically every form of popular music across the globe--is Black music and we are its heirs. We, too, claim the right of creative freedom and access to American and International airwaves, audiences, markets, resources and compensations, irrespective of genre.

The BRC embraces the total spectrum of Black music. The BRC rejects the arcane perceptions and spurious demographics that claim our appeal is limited. The BRC further rejects the demand for Black artists to tailor their music to fit into the creative straightjackets the music industry has designed. We are individuals and will accept no less than full respect for our right to be conceptually independent.





SoulOfAmerica.com:
Soul Of America publishes information that addresses cultural travel, primarily in America and the Caribbean. We orient information to Black online travelers, an underserved market before we arrived. Drawing inspiration from our African American ancestors who invented Soul Music, we like to say ďSoulful Travel Begins Here.Ē

Our website, SoulOfAmerica.com, welcomes ALL visitors who wish to broaden their cultural travel options by exploring editorial and photographic treasures overlooked by mass media.





TheFunkStore.com:
Founded In The Fall Of 2000 By Musician/Entrepreneur Daryl Moon , The FunkStore Has Grown To Become The Internet's & The World's Foremost Authority On Independent Raw Funk Music.The Son Of Black Radio Pioneer 'The Late' Donald C. Mullins, Daryl Moon Has Formed An Alliance With The Leaders In The Raw Funk Community, As Well As Many Members Of The Parliament-Funkadelic AllStars. TheFunkStore Has Become The Premiere Outlet For CDs & Material From Them As Well Other Established & Up & Coming Funk & Rock Artist .





New England Informer News Magazine:
The Newsmagazines' mission is to disseminate information to empower Black Americans along the Eastern Sea Board and beyond. It's goal, is to become the premier information resource tool helping Black American's build better businesses and meet the growing demands of Black consumers. It will offer up to date information. Whether through training, educating, advertising or advice, it will promote economic self-determination, financial independence and economic literacy.

New England Informer's high-quality and thought-provoking format will make this Newsmagazine the most consistently sought after Black Owned publication in New England. We will employee within the Black Community whenever possible and we will work with Schools and Universities to offer Internships.

New England Informer has the opportunity to become the leader in this Industry, setting the standards, today, tomorrow and for generations to come while bringing Black American issues, concerns and information into mainstream America whether through what is in the actual paper or on-line version or through the collaborations with other publications and resources throughout the country.





Urbanland Music:
and itís subsidiaries was founded in 1999 by Paul Kyser, a world known songwriter, arranger, conductor, producer and record company owner. Kyser worked and built relationships with just about all of the artists from the late 60s and 70s era. Kyser wrote over 30 hits in his career as a record producer. During the 90s Kyser decided to bring back the 70s Sweet Soul sound to the stage. Kyser bought back groups like Black Ivory who hadnít sung in years. Thatís when Urbanland was founded. To promote 70s music entertainment in a big way. Thatís why itís called The Big Show.

Other promoters would have 3-4 acts live on stage with a 5-piece band. Urbanland Musicís Big Show have over 9 acts on stage and a 25-30 piece back up orchestra to back up the artists. Urbanland wanted to capture the real 70s sweet soul sound with violins, violas, a large horn section, and great arrangements.


We think that these are entities that you should all suuport. Attend the Urbanland Music shows and purchase their DVD's. Buy subscriptions and advertise with the New England Informer and the New Pittsburgh Courier. Buy a membership in the Black Rock Coalition for your family. By travel services online from SoulofAmerica.com and buy a CD online from TheFunkstore.com.

We think that it is the absolute obligation of Soul-Patrol to keep Black owned entities as strong as possible and we think that Black History Month is a good time to remind all of our members to do so as well...

Let us know what YOU think???

1. Tyrone Davis R.I.P. 


Tyrone Davis

I got this message from the family of Tyrone Davis this morning. It's also posted up on our Tyrone Davis Chat Transcript page.
Soul-Patrol: Tyrone Davis Chat Transcript

I feel that Tyrone Davis is now in a better place and the suffering he was going through has now come to an end. I'm also glad that I got to know Tyrone Davis while he was still alive. I had a truly great 2 hour telephone conversation with him one saturday morning a few days prior to our chat session with him a few years ago that I will never forget. I'm also pleased and proud that to this day Soul-Patrol's Chat Transcript page remains the very best place on the internet to find out about the life and career of Tyrone Davis from HIS PERSPECTIVE...

Soul-Patrol: Tyrone Davis Chat Transcript

People ask why we do these chat sessions with artists as the hosts (such as this weeks session with Bo Diddley). Now you know why.... Please pass it along to your people here on the Internet. Thanks in advance...

2. Ossie Davis - R.I.P.


Ossie Davis I just got this letter earlier today and I thought that some of you might be interested in reading it...

Hello!

When I went to Soul-Patrol this very morning I got so f*cking angry...just because I happen to be white I don't want to be accuced for rascism et all...I don't want to get this message thrown up my face as soon as I open
Soul-Patrol....please remove me from Soul-Patrol newsletter

Johnny XXXX
Stockholm
Sweden
Johnny 'The Trammp' XXXX

Of course I will gladly remove this person.
However consider the following....

1. If you go to the front page of Soul-Patrol.com what you will hear is about 1 min from a speech by Malcolm X ("the price of freedom is death"), followed by a song called "More Than A Month" by Philly Soul-Patrollers Zahmu. This song has been used by the Philadelphia School System as a part of it's program to teach students about the meaning of Black History Month.

2. Every year I get at least one person who doesn't think that Soul-Patrol has the right to celebrate Black History Month with the dignity that we think that it deserves. As long as we restrict our content to "singin & dancin", I suppose its ok? As most of you know, this is not unusual. In the past I have had people from major Internet sites request that I remove our Black History Month content as a pre-condition for them linking to Soul-Patrol. And as you all know when this has occurred in the past, I have told these folks to remove their links to us because we certainly aren't going to allow them to dictate what our content is going to be (basically go f*ck yourself). Our mission and objectives aren't a secret, and we see no need to hide them or to be ashamed of them

3. Being INDEPENDENT carries with it many advantages. The most important of which is the ability to put up whatever we deem necessary without the interference of any corporate or governmental entities. It is for this reason; Soul-Patrol is never going to be a part of the "mainstream". That's not our purpose or intent. In fact the day that happens, that is when the entire purpose for Soul-Patrol to exist will go away and in fact the site should disappear.

4. As I said when he passed, I think that it is no small coincidence that Ossie Davis passed away during Black History Month. If there was ever a person who lived their life according to what the very idea of what Black History Month represented, it was Ossie Davis. His stance of always saying what needed to be said, even in the face of potentially being blacklisted by Hollywood is something that is both courageous and inspirational. Of course Ossie Davis delivered the eulogy at the funeral of Malcolm X. I suspect that he would be pretty proud of Soul-Patrol...

5. Last night I attended a show in Philly, featuring the Chi-Lites. While I was backstage I was showing our own Marshall Thompson (of the Chi-Lites) the info sheet...
Soul-Patrol 1 page info sheet that I usually carry with me when I attend these type of events. When Marshall saw the numbers, he was amazed at the reach that Soul-Patrol had attained over the past few years. He started yelling and screaming the numbers to everyone backstage and urging me to pass out the info sheet to everyone backstage. I explained to him that it is all made possible by Sponsors like him who are willing to make sure that we have the money we need to keep the site operational. And that is what gives us the ability to do what we do.

6. The site itself was down for a few hours this morning. Nothing major, it happens more times than yall would even suspect. It was down as a result of a faulty power supply, which Mike quickly corrected. And as we wore working on it, I told Mike about this letter and said...

"I guess he got his wish, he needs to be removed ASAP before he see the next issue of the Soul-Patrol Newsletter which is going to include a tribute to Black owned businesses on the internet..."
:)

3. Jimmy Smith - R.I.P.


Jimmy Smith As one who loves/has loved hearing the best musicians in the business, in this genre, play some slammin' Hammond B-3, past and present, especially since childhood and, particularly, Jimmy Smith, I am very saddened by this news of his passing :(... When *I* was growing up in the '60's, Jimmy Smith was my father's main man, for some grooving
jazz music. My daddy would ROCK Jimmy Smith's records, quite loudly on the hi-fi in the basement of our family home, when he was in "party mode", God(dess) bless him, and rest his soul :)... Can y'all say, "Organ Grinder's Swing"?...LOL! Eventually, though, Jimmy Smith became one of my OWN "main men" in this respect, especially in middle-age when I suddenly BECAME my daddy/my mama, along with myself, for REAL, in terms of my (more serious) musical tastes...LOL!


IMHO, there are a few folks, out there now - remaining amongst the living, that can handle a B-3. But, hey, to ME, Jimmy Smith will always be the one that set the standard, raised the "bar", when t came to the B-3. May he rest in peace...

4. Book Review - A House on Fire: The Rise and Fall of Philadelphia Soul


A House on Fire: The Rise and Fall of Philadelphia SoulA House on Fire: The Rise and Fall of Philadelphia Soul By John A. Jackson
OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS; 338 PAGES

"Give me a nickel, brother can you spare a dime. Money can drive some people out of their minds. For the love of money. Got to have it - I really need it. For the love of money. Give it up, give it up, give it up - yeah. For the love of money. Got to have it - some people really need it. For the love of money. Give me, give me, give me - cash money For the love of money. I need - I need For the love of money. Keep me, keep me, keep me - happy

--For the Love Of Money
(written by Gamble & Huff)


I just wanted to let everyone here know that this is a GREAT book. I finished reading it over the course of a weekend. Everyone here who is concerned about "connecting the dots" with respect to the history of Soul music should read it and if you are a person who doesn't care, buy a copy for a friend who does.

Philadelphia Soul really was an "update" to Motown for the 1970's. There are many parallels to the Motown story here, from a music, business and social perspective. One parallel is that the story of Philadelphia Soul, like the story of Motown is a story that can't be told from a singular perspective. Thus the book has many different voices telling the story, because that is the only way that it could be told.

That is not exactly a shocking revelation, but I had to read the entire book in order to understand the detail of why that was true, because what I learned by reading this book was exactly how little I truly knew about the evolution, the connections and disconnections of Philadelphia Soul.

Many members of Soul-Patrol are mentioned in the book, so it was good to see their names in print. Billy Paul, Keith Benson, Vince Montana, Barbara Mason, Will Hart, Jean Carn, Jerry Butler, the O'Jays and more...

(btw, the author of the book John Jackson is also a Soul-Patrol member and he is to be commended for both the research that he did)

Of course the "central character" of the story is Kenny Gamble, and much like Berry Gordy he is both "villain & hero" at the same time. Also like Berry Gordy did with the many books that have been written about Motown, Kenny Gamble refused to talk with the author of this book....lol

The book A House on Fire The Rise and Fall of Philadelphia Soul isn't really the story of the Philadelphia International Record Company (although that is certainly a key subplot). It's really the story of how Philadelphia based Black popular music in the mid to late 1960's evolved into a MONSTER crossover hit making machine for a relatively short period of time in the 1970's and then died a painful death in the 1980's.

Most importantly it's the story of how a group of young Philadelphia based musical visionaries (Kenny Gamble, Leon Huff, Thom Bell, etc.), converged with talented Philadelphia based artists (Mcfadden & Whitehead, Delfonics, Intruders, Barbara Mason, MFSB, First Choice, Harold Melvin's Blue Notes, Stylistics, Dexter Wansel, Billy Paul, Three Degrees, etc) and talented artists from other parts of the United States who came to Philly hoping that some of the magic would rub off (Manhattans, Lou Rawls, O'Jays, Dusty Springfield, etc) all set against the backdrop of the declining years of the racist hit making machine that they replaced, Cameo-Parkway Records.

The magic of that rise is contrasted with the decline, which is a tale of greed, backstabbing, lawsuits, rip-offs, payola, bloated self importance and finally capitulation to the very same white dominated corporate structure that spawned it.

It's a fascinating case study which once again illustrates the point that sometimes...."black people are their own worst enemies..."

In a "perfect world", the story could have had a happy ending. (but it didn't)

And since it doesn't have a "happy ending", the story of Philadelphia Soul reads to me like yet another chapter in the larger story of the generation of Black Americans who overcame through sheer talent and determination during the 1970's and then squandered it. The O'jay's great song "For The Love of Money" (Ironically currently the theme song to Donald Trump's TV show),could have easily been the subtitle of this book.

One thing is for sure, I shall never walk past the Philadelphia International Records building on Broad Street in Philadelphia in and look at it in quite the same way anymore...

John Jackson does a great job of threading these multiple perspectives together to create a book that many of you should enjoy.

If you are a fan of this music, this book is an essential one for you to read.

5. Sonny Boy (hope for the future)


Sonny Boy


This past week we have seen quite a bit of death within our community of music/culture. While it's been a sad week, we should remember that there is a new generation of artists on the horizon that needs our support going forward....One of those artists, Sheldon Riser (of Sonny Boy) dropped me this line and I don't think that he would mind me sharing this with you. Good to know that he's busy working on something new for usÖ

Thanks Bob for the support of Urban Misfit, Its good to know that people still like that peace of art. Thank you and your listeners.

I'm pretty much a hermit these days working on the New CD, so I only go out for food and water and haven't talk to many of my friends. I work without knowing what day it is or if its night or day, this helps me work better and focus on the music.

The new CD is (I think) my best work because of the many turning point in my life that lead up to it, so it is very much an emotional CD. I wish all the listeners well, that go to your web page to here the Urban Misfit radio show. It is love, I know that and I will return it with even more quality music.

Peace and Love Shel.

PS thanks Bob Illl talk to you soon.
