Guru - Boston-Brooklyn Junction

If you've been following me on Twitter, you know I've got some comprehensive compilations lined up in honor of the life and music of Guru, upon the one year anniversary of his passing. Boston-Brooklyn Junction is a loose compilation that includes artists from the two respective regions. This selection is somewhat of a leftovers mix from the two larger releases I've got on the way. Stay tuned for that. In the meantime, bump this while the Celtics and Knicks prepare for battle. Funny how things work out like that. The cover art to Boston-Brooklyn Junction was inspired by Thad Jones's 1956 LP Detroit-New York Junction (Blue Note Records). Check that out as well if you're so inclined. Bottom line: Enjoy... and turn it up!! Guru, rest in peace.
