Though he only recorded a handful of singles, Bessemer, Alabama-born and Montgomery, West Virginia-bred, and Detroit, Michigan's own Nelson Sanders is one of my all-time favorite soul singers. His heavy "Our Love Is Here To Stay" appears on "Souvenirs of the Soul Clap" Vol 4 is turning all the time around these parts! BUT.... my all-time favorite is unquestionably thee supreme screaming soul punch of this bad muthascratcher! "Mojo Man"sounds so huge that I spent years trying to locate an o.g. copy to knock you around the floor with. And here it is! Feel it!

You're listening to my daily addition to the New York Night Train Party Platter playlist. Each track here is recorded directly from the original 45 (no bootlegs, reproductions, etc) to give you an idea of what the real deal authentic vinyl sounds like. COME BACK EVERY DAY FOR A NEW FIX! Because the records pass so quickly at my dance parties, this channel is an attempt to stop and focus on one record at a time in hopes that it'll turn you on to the artists, tracks, labels, etc. I'm just hipping myself to a lot of these records for the first time as well - so you can view this as our journey to learning more about cool old records together! But mostly I hope this music moves you as much as it moves me.
Get your enjoys, Jonathan Toubin Soul Proprietor, New York Night Train
