Mississippi Records Tape Series: Vol. 37 - Ghost Dance

Portland's finest record shop Mississippi Records has an ongoing Tape Series that serves as a treasure trove of forgotten gems for music enthusiasts. Over the past two years the RootStrata blog has been collecting these cassette tapes and digitizing them for folks. I highly recommend downloading shop owner and Mississippi label head Eric Isaacson's wonderfully curated collections while the good times last. Just type "Mississippi" into the blog's search bar and you'll be inundated with choices, from early blues and soul music to themed selection's like "Satan Is Real." Personally, I've fallen head over heels for "Ghost Dance: Early years of Americana and Jamaican soul music." And if you live in Portland, go pick up a cassette yourself!
