Welcome To The Soul-Patrol Newsletter

Soul-Patrol and American Idol

Last week one of the contestants on American Idol gave a "sout out" to Soul-Patrol at the end of their performance. Since that time I have gotten hundreds of emails about the incident. I don't know the person, and I don't know if they were talking specificly about us. However, what I do know is that it resulted in almost 2,000 brand new subcribers to the Soul-Patrol Newsletter. So I'd like to welcome all of those new subscribers aboard. Hopefully you will all enjoy the journey...

As Soul-Patrol continues it's celebration of Black History Month, we just keep rolling "from the ancient to the future".

We have a new Marvin Gaye DVD, a live appearance in Chicago with Erik Green the author of "Our Uncle Sam: The Sam Cooke Story from His Family's Perspective" @ V-103's Expo for Today's Black Woman, a profile of NYC Jazz-Soul artist Monet, an update from DESI as his new CD "Golden Lady" is getting more and more airplay across the country and a commentary on the ever changing music paradigm. Incidently, we will be continuing our celebration of Black History Month into March when we attend the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremonies to cover the induction of MR. MILES DEWEY DAVIS. (febuary is just too damn short).

A few concerts that if you live in these areas, I would like to consider attending:

- Harold Melvin's BlueNotes, Sharon Page, Blue Magic, Frankie Morales and Timothy Wilson @ New Jersey University!!....In March

Check out the sounds of Classic R&B and Salsa

- Leon Ware @ the Temple Bar in Los Angeles in March

Soul-Patrol Times: Calling All Concert Promoters and Venues

Some of you may have notices that in addition to the "small/inexpensive" ad's which appear on the Soul-Patrol Times, we have also started to include concert flyers as a part of the mailings. We plan on continuing to do so and if you are a concert promoter/venue interested in this, contact me via email(earthjuice@prodigy.net
). As you might have imagined, a number of concert promoters and venues from around the country have contacted us about providing this additonal service. It's easy to understand why, due to the serious decline of "soul music" on the radio, some venues and concert promoters have decided to take advantage of the targeted audience we have at Soul-Patrol in order to reach folks. And since so many of you write into me asking me when certain shows are coming to your area, this seems to be a good way to serve both needs. As a result you will begin to notice some design changes on the Soul-Patrol Times to accomidate these promoters and venues.

Marvin Gaye - The Real Thing In Performance 1964 - 1981: First Time On DVD 16 Vintage Marvin Gaye Performances

Marvin Gaye Reelin' In The Years Productions and Hip-O Records are proud to announce the April 4, 2006 release of Marvin Gaye - The Real Thing In Performance 1964 - 1981 on DVD. Featured for the first time on DVD are 16 classic full-length performances from American and European television appearances, spanning three decades. The DVD includes more than 70 minutes of performances by Marvin Gaye, one of Motown's greatest stars. Issued with the full cooperation of the Marvin Gaye estate, this is the first official DVD anthology of classic archival television performances by a Motown artist. The DVD includes a wealth of classic performances with re-mastered sound and video plus a host of bonus features.

Marvin Gaye - The Real Thing In Performance 1964 - 1981 begins with Gaye singing one of his earliest hits, "Hitch Hike" on American Bandstand in 1964; the DVD progresses through the artist's entire Motown career including vintage performances of "Pride And Joy," "Ain't That Peculiar," "Can I Get A Witness," "Let's Get It On" and a host of others. Further treasures include a beautiful 1967 duet performance of "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" with Tammi Terrell; a staggering live concert performance of "What's Going On" and "What's Happening Brother" from 1972, from the long-lost documentary film Save The Children; and an amazing live 1969 performance of "I Heard It Through The Grapevine" from Hollywood Palace recorded while the song was still number one on the charts. Interspersed between the songs, Gaye talks about his life and music in interview segments from various TV shows throughout his career.

For Marvin Gaye - The Real Thing In Performance 1964 - 1981 every effort has been made to locate the best possible sound and video; each of the performances, has been re-transferred and re-mastered from the best-quality, original masters (some resting in the television vaults for over 40 years). In the case of lip-sync performances, the original Motown stereo master recordings have been used, replacing the original mono broadcast sound and making for a much more enjoyable viewing and listening experience.

Marvin Gaye - The Real Thing In Performance 1964 - 1981 also includes unique bonus content. For the first time anywhere, an audio only feature of six original a cappella (vocal only) performances of Gaye's classic hits discovered in the Motown vaults. In addition, viewers have the option to watch these performances while listening to only Marvin Gaye's original studio vocal master track. Fans will feel as if they're in the original Motown recording booth with Gaye. The DVD further includes a 24-page booklet with an extensive essay by Grammy Award®-winning writer, Rob Bowman, including rare photographs and memorabilia.

Commentary: And the Beat Goes On (Brotha Can You Spare a Paradigm Part 2)

Soul-Patrol NewsletterTrue enough, Soul-Patrol is big. It reaches a LOT of people, over the course of a month:

- 3,000,000 website visitors each month
- 80,000 internet radio listeners each month
- 34,000 Soul-Patrol Newsletter and Soul-Patrol Times subscribers

Those are some VERY high numbers for something that basically is operated from this worn out chair that I am currently sitting in and another equally worn out chair that my brother sits in over in New York.

However I have come to the conclusion that simply "reaching people" isn't really enough. "Reaching people" isn't really enough to foster meaningful change or activism. People may complain verbally, but they are rarely moved to change any of the things that they complain about. That tells me that they kinda like the way things are?

I predict that 2006 will be the biggest year ever for Soul-Patrol. Our traffic volumes are going to become astronomical. And the reason why is because we are going to lose many, many of OUR artists in 2006

"Pure Nostalgia" actually holds very little interest for me:

I am a person who is far more interested in the future, than in the past.
I have a copy of just about every song from the past that I want to have.
I don't have enough hours in the day to even listen to all of them.

This of course is the 64 dollar question, with the 64 billion dollar answer. As we have seen over the past month, "the old heads" are quickly slipping away from us. In the past month we have lost Richard Pryor, Lou Rawls and Wilson Pickett. It would seem that I can't write obituaries fast enough?

People by and large are upset when these folks pass and there is a great deal of outward concern accompanied by a flurry of internet activity about that person. And then a day or two after they are put into the ground, people forget all about them all over again. That is fine and I suppose that it's really just human nature to simply move on.

It still doesn't change the fundamental problem...
Simply having the information about great music no longer motivates people in the way that it once did.

I think that today's current music scene is something that people who are the fans of artists like LRichard Pryor, Lou Rawls, Wilson Pickett and whoever is going to pass away next week should actually be excited about. There a LOTS of great artists operating today that are worth checking out, that are more than capable of filling the artistic void left by those who pass.

Here are two real life examples, right here on Soul-Patrol in the past month or so....

1. The Persuaders new CD
2. Gordon Chambers new CD

We have featured both over the past month or so. In my opinion they are both excellent new CD's that I like and that probably most people here would like upon hearing them.

We sent email blasts out to all 34,000 Soul-Patrol Newsletter subscribers last week that featured history, CD reviews, and upcoming events and most importantly gave people the ability to listen to the CD's online.

I know for a fact that many thousands of people opened up those emails and clicked on the links contained to either go to the websites of these artists and/or to listen to the music from these new CD's. I can see that from the server logs. We track all of this data.

You could see from the survey that I published a few weeks ago that a whole bunch of folks listened to the two CD's via Soul-Patrol.Net .

15. THE PERSUADERS - "MADE TO BE LOVED"

LISTEN TO THE PERSUADERS NEW CD @ Soul-Patrol.Net Radio: MADE TO BE LOVED - A Woman Was Made To Be Loved, Never Stop Loving You, Don't Think I Won't Leave, Mama, The Wedding Song, She's Mine, Hypnotized

30. INTRODUCING GORDON CHAMBERS

SOUL-PATROL.NET RADIO - LISTEN TO: Introducing Gordon Chambers: Touch You There; Never Fall In Love; Slippin' Away; My Imagination; Be Happy; Still In Love; My Valentine; Ill Miss You Most; That's When You Fall; Always Be Proud; I Apologize; The Only One

(That ain't too shabby...)

I'm sure that both artists sold some CD's as a result of all of this activity. However I am also sure that they didn't sell nearly as many as they should have. And that is what bothers me. We can beat people over the head with this information. But in reality, either they want to buy it, or they don't based on whatever their priorities are. Simply having the information about good music, doesn't really seem to be enough in 2006 to motivate music fans to buy the music?

As I have stated in the past, I am of the belief that we are witnessing a PARADIGM SHIFT. Recorded music is quickly becoming a commodity that people aren't willing to pay for in the same way that they used to. The iPod phenomenon is a part of it, but it goes way beyond that...

Recently I had a conversation with Derek Sievers, the owner of CD Baby. CD Baby is the biggest seller of independent music on the internet. Most artists on Soul-Patrol sell their music through CD Baby (including some very big names). Derek gave me some statistics about CD Baby that blew me away.

- 118,976 artists sell their CD at CD Baby.
- 2,063,824 CDs sold online to customers.
- An average of 17 CD's sold per artist
- Most artists never sell a single CD!

Now this isn't proprietary information, it's posted right on their site.

Now to be fair CD Baby has created a great platform and is a great enableler of online commerce for independent artists. However, as Derek told me, "it is then the responsibility of the artist to do the marketing in order to get potential customers to their CD Baby page". I have no doubt that the traffic volumes at CD Baby are huge and that the artists do a good job by and large of getting people to go to their CD Baby sites. In fact I know for a fact that CD Baby has some of the highest traffic volumes on the entire internet. That's to be expected since it's got 118,000 people (the artists) who are driving traffic there.

However the data shows that people are not buying the product in the numbers that one might expect. This is not a criticism of CD Baby. This is just an observation about the behavior of music fans.

Incidentally BOTH the Persuaders and Gordon Chambers have pages on CD Baby:

- Persuaders
http://cdbaby.com/cd/persuaders

- Gordon Chambers
http://cdbaby.com/cd/gordonchambers

Now it could very well be that people still aren't ready to buy consumer goods online. But I don't think that's true. We know that most stores as well as manufacturers of consumer goods today have a SERIOUS online presence and that online sales make up a HUGE percentage of all sales for consumer items.

I think that there has been a PARADIGM SHIFT. I think that people still want recorded music. I just don't think that they are willing to buy recorded music anymore. They think it's supposed to be "free".

Now that's all well and good for the consumer....

But it isn't good for the artist, especially when the trend for physical record stores (remember those places???) to GO OUT OF BUSINESS???? Just last week I had a conversation with the manager of an independent Soul music retailer down south in Atlanta. I have never been there, but apparently it's similar to Bondys (NYC) and Sound of Market (Philly). It's located in downtown Atlanta and specializes in Soul Music. He told me that sales in the store are way down and that he was in the process of trying to move the bulk of his operations online. He wants to partner with Soul-Patrol to that end. I'm sure that we will end up doing something with him, however I did tell him that online sales is no panacea.

How is the artists supposed to earn enough money to continue justifying their own investment of time/money in the creation of recorded music? I think that despite the fact that the costs involved in creating recorded music have been dramatically reduced over the next couple of years we are going to witness a great number of those 118,976 artists leave the music business. They will leave simply because they will have to get a full time job somewhere, in order to feed their families. They will leave the music business, because people think that recorded music is supposed to be "free".

I used to think that the average person didn't realize that to an artist, making recorded music isn't just a hobby or something that they do for fun. I used to think that people didn't understand that for the artist, the selling of music is their LIVELYHOOD and their LIFE. I used to think that people didn't understand that if they didn't buy the music and buy it DIRECTLY from the artist that the artist would have to "retire" from the music business and find another line of work.

I now think that most people do in fact understand this.
I suspect that they actually don't care.

All of this information is great. It's fun. It's personally fulfilling. And I get to meet lots of great people and it provides a LOT of exposure for the music and the artists.

I'm not sure that it's effective in fostering change. I'm not sure any more than a handful of people actually want anything to change. I think that most people prefer to be manipulated by the media as opposed to making up their minds for themselves. That is what I'd like to see changed

The big companies are still raking in big dollars, off of fewer and fewer artists each year in order to maintain their stock valuations.

- Jamie Foxx had a music TV special featuring his current hit song containing a sample from a song made famous by New Birth, 30 years ago that New Birth isn't getting compensated for (yet).

- In the meantime, New Birth has a CD of new music that they are struggling to sell, that most people who have heard, seem to like when they hear it, but aren't buying in the numbers that they should be...

I THINK THERE IS SOMETHING TERRIBLY WRONG
(and I am currently at a loss for an answer)
