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.

Stax is high (Including Fufu Stew No. 16: Eclectic Sweat)

Hello, kiddies.

The time has finally come to get the juices flowing and get this train rolling once again. My absence this time is due to an extended stay in several vinyl appreciation groups on Facebook. After having spent the last year with this fine group of people from virtually every corner of the earth, I've been compelled to change the scenery a little bit. From now on, I will attempt to play every record I own... well, the really good ones at the very least. Having made the transition from being a semi-retired DJ to that of a full blown record junkie was easy, reigning in the abundance of newly acquired records and crafting mixtapes from them is a bit more of a challenge to say the least... this is the first of what I hope will be many as I get back into the swing of things. With all that said, I present the latest batch of Fufu Stew. Grab your spoon and dig in. It's been way too long, and the "stax is high"...

Thanks to John and Paul from the Crate Diggers Union for the inspiration... Join us over on Facebook by clicking the link here -------->
