I’m reminiscing and remembering the day a few years ago when I received the news from David Nathan at Soul Music, that the first (9) volumes of the official SOUL TRAIN DVDs had become now available from Time Life! As many of you, who like me, grew up watching these fantastic series will also know, Mr Nathan has been a shining star on the soul music scene for the past couple of decades and he wrote the liner notes for each of the DVDs, featuring enduring performances by the legends of soul music – including Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Barry White, The Jacksons, Stevie Wonder, Teddy Pendergrass and many more! These should still be available via the usual online outlets – and David created a link at The Soul Music Store, so you can probably still order your complete set – or individual volumes here
