Vincent The Soul Chef

I love music... any kind of music... as long as it's groovy.

After a decade of trial and error, here is the official website where I attempt to chronicle my forty year obsession with all things vinyl. I dedicate this endeavour lovingly and respectfully to each and every single cratedigger the world over who has offered me education and inspiration either directly or indirectly. Without you, this site, much less my record collection, would cease to exist. Thank you and enjoy.

In The Beginning... (formerly known as Dateline: 1973)

After over forty years of hunting, I finally have my hands on the 45s my mother and uncles gave me when I was a child. This is just one of  the mixes I made recently with those old friends. Over two hours of 45s, 45 of them in fact, and a whole lot of memories. Enjoy.
