there's a light

shirley ann lee

No idea how Numero Group continues to dig up this kind of gold on such a consistent basis, but the upcoming Downriver Revival comp -- the first installment in the label's new "Local Customs" series -- is one of their deepest and best hauls yet. The record features some of the sounds that were coming out of the basement of Ecorse, Michigan's Felton Williams between 1967 and 1981. Read about the history of Williams' various labels while you take a listen to one of four powerful Shirley Ann Lee joints from the record, the starkly soulful "There's a Light." From the comp's amazingly detailed and exhaustive liner notes:
"The strongest of Lee's three Revival singles finds her at a crossroad of genres. Co-written with her truck-driving husband James after a haul through southern Michigan at dawn, "There's a Light" straddles gospel and rockabilly..."

Downriver Revival is out March 3, and includes an incredible DVD with over 200 archival sound recordings. Read more/buy here. Also recommended: this short and sweet clip documents Shirley Ann Lee's first listen to her own recordings in nearly 40 years. Here's a home recording from Ms. Lee that doesn't appear on the comp, via the Numero Group blog:

Even it got me crazy enough to buy Guild Wars Prophecies with some my own GuildWars Gold and Nightfall and Eye of the North. It is expensive to buy gw gold all parts. If you lack the GuildWars money, but it is worth it and no monthly costs and the game gets updated weekly at least. Once again, if anyone wants to play Guild Wars sometime add me to friends here Guild Wars Gold. And realize how much cheap gw gold I bought in the last couple of weeks, months, years. So I found this Guild Wars Factions and installed it.

You need to go through long distances sometimes, making you buy a lot of Teleport scrolls with your Rose zuly just to go to the cities. The quests are OK and have a good storyline so far, and you will gain a good amount of experience by grinding and rose zulie too. Something I liked in this game was the nice design of the clothes can have from rose online zuly. There also armor also can gain from rose online zulie sets that can be wore by any class. Another nice thing that I would like to talk about, is that you can have nice Arua ROSE zuly in ROSE Online.
