Soul Serenade - Gary Bonds

Those of you who have been following along may have  noticed that there was no Soul Serenade column last week. It was the first time that the column didn’t appear in its weekly spot for nearly five years, but there was a very good reason for the absence. Popdose has had a makeover … new look, new host, the whole deal. My colleagues and I owe a great debt to our Leader-In-Chief Jeff Giles for all of his hard work in making this happen. If you’ve ever had to deal with website issues, you know how difficult and downright annoying it can be. Thanks Jeff! Now that we’ve got this new look, and by the way the site is much faster than it used to be too, I encourage you to check out the front page, and by all means read some of the other stories. We have some great writers here. Then return here every Thursday morning as usual for Soul Serenade.

It occurs to me that despite the fact that I love the music that comes out of New Orleans, I have featured precious little of it in this column. This week’s record isn’t going to do much to change that. It’s a great record, and it has the title, and the sound, but the record is not born of the Crescent City. Look for more of the real thing going forward.
