Have you listened to the free download on Jdub's web site? A compilation of disco and funk

You can find the download here.Here's some info about the mix.
We are proud to present Soulico's new FREE mixtape titled Archeology: A Deep Dig Into Israeli Grooves

It's an hour full of Hasidic Disco, Spirutal Soul, Yamanite Funk, Turkish Acid Rock, Arabic Jazz & much more, all recorded & released in Israel by local musicians & artists in the 70's and early 80's. 95% of the tunes were never reissued on CD and were fairly obscure even when they originally came out. This is the result of a decade of digging in Tel-Aviv's record shops & Flea markets.
E. forwards a link to a bizarre discussion on Yeshiva World about the 'obligation' of a groom to pay his friend's transportation to his wedding. Unreal!

He also forwards a link to an article, "Controversy Surrounding Musical Career Daughter of Haredi Tycoon Joseph Gutnick."

J. forwards a copy of a poster advertising a concert an event and writes:
An evening of Chizuk indeed! Definitely not a concert Chas V'shalom!

PT emails a link to "some videos of a few of the blues tunes we did at Summerfest."
