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.

Hear Her Roar...

Hello, kiddies.

For the first time in almost ten years, the first installment of the now storied AntiDivas saga is once again available for your consumption... suffice it to say, this one is quite sentimental to me because it was this collection that put the Fufu Stew brand on the map for all intents and purposes. The amount of love that this mix received was humbling, so as a treat to myself, I revisited the original playing order, albeit with a little bit of a gentle push from a good friend... I've since found better sources for most of the tunes so the sound quality is decidedly much better of course. Enjoy. NOTE: this mix contains non-vinyl sources. Big thanks to Mr. Fine Wine for the Shirley Karol and Ramona Jones tracks which were featured on his epic Cabernet Soulvignon premium CD... the best $75 donation I ever made, without question...
