J Bluevibe is also known as Jason Fishwick, the man who threw the original NZ Soul All Dayer party a few years back. For this reason alone, it's a huge pleasure to have him play at the official re-launch of his event.

2. Jack McDuff - Oblighetto
3. The Holy Disciples - Trying To Make A Hundred
4. The Fugitives - Love Come Down

Ethan Powers is the man behind the vinyl at that institution of Chicago record stores Out Of The Past Records. They've been going since the '60s and you can probably still find stock from back then in their overflowing shelves. Definitely a sight to behold. Tell Ethan that Kris sent you. (Oh, and this Top 5 List is a heavily edited version - check issue #2 of the Soultearoa Shakedown 'zine for the full version.)
Issue #2 of the 'zine will be available for FREE at the next NZ Soul All Dayer event - also FREE, from midday til midnight, Saturday 17 August, at the Britomart Country Club.
