Show 543 - Disciples Of Soul Part 4: Soul Rocks

Air Date:

Monday, 27 August 2012

Hey baby, Little Steven here.

Tune in this week for the exciting conclusion of our four part series, Disciples Of Soul, as we examine, analyze, and ultimately celebrate the roots of Rock n’ Roll, and the cover songs that came from it.

This week we are turning the tables, and having the soul singers cover the Rock songs.

I guarantee we have some mind blowers in there for you.

Come join Neil Young, the Temptations, Van Morrison, the Beatles, and the Rolling Stones.

Brand new music from Charles Bradley & the Menahan Street Band, Suzi Chunk & the Groovy Uncle, the Connection, Free Energy, and Tom Jones has a new record, and let’s face it; you will only hear it here.

I will see you in the world’s only Rock n’ Roll dance party on the radio, and on the beach.

We are staying out of school as long as possible.

I’ll see you this weekend in the Underground Garage.

    Rock and roll has soul in it. Thank you Chuck Berry for creating rock and roll out of African American Music for a white audience.

    I learn something I didn't know about rock n roll every week in the Underground Garage. Thanks Stevie. Imagine Wilson Pickett covering The Archies. Amazing. Life is full of surprises.

  • david stoops

    Little Steven.Wilson Pickett's "Hey Jude" is a real gem. With Duane Allman on guitar.

  • gerrald stangret

    I was shocked that no one wanted a copy of Men Without Women, by Little Steven and The Disciples Of Soul.If you want a great album from vinyl for free, just pay shipping from toronto, call me at SKYPE,gerrald6. Or e mail gerrald6@yahoo.ca

  • Bob Cayia

    The Underground Garage is so darn refreshing... I just gotta say THANKS! I hear songs I haven't dug out on vinyl in years and say, "I loved that song" and then I'm hit with something new and equally exciting, all done in the same vein... 100% Rock N' Roll.
    Thank you!

  • Ron Lynch

    The covers are wicked good Stevie. Like the Neil Young cover, cool stuff.
    The Hey Jude was a wild arrangement for sure.
    Another piece from the Moncton show that was neat is that Bruce did If I should Fall Behind. My brother inlaw asked me if Bruce would do that song and I said most likely not, it would be rare.( but it was requested up front & Bruce did it).
    It meant alot to him because his mother died a few years ago, then his father died of a broken heart about a week later. At the funeral a girl went up to the mic and said she wanted to recite a song, it was that song.

    Thanks Stevie Keep Rockin
