VA - Raining in My Soul (A Butterboy Compilation) CD1+CD2+CD3


VA - Raining in My Soul (A Butterboy Compilation) CD1+CD2+CD3

Rains songs are plentiful in rock, The are often songs about emotions but can also be just about rain. 

This set is part of a 10 Volume series that explores the RAIN in song. You may be surprised to hear that I have culled this down from over 20 volumes worth of material. 

This volume is given to some of the rain songs that I enjoy in the SOUL genre. 

Other volumes include rain song in Rock, Folk Rock, Folk, Powerpop, Psychedelic Rock, Sunshine pop, Blues, Soul and other themed categories.  Enjoy!

  1. Thanks Butterboy, lots of nice soul/R&B tracks here.

    1. Hi Bob Mac.
      On the surface it looks great. On listening it's even better. Enjoy!

  2. Rain and soul, magic combination. Thanks Butterboy for this set.

  3. Reupload this files "VA - Tribute Songs to Dead Musicians (A Butterboy Compilation) CD1+CD2+CD3".....please

    1. Hi Rockstalgia.
      The links are working fine.
      Please check again.
      I assume you are clicking on the link icon above the track list.

    2. I tried again but the Links doesnt exist

    3. Hi Rockstalgia.
      I am not sure what is going on but there have been hundreds of downloads and no mention of missing links. I hope you can figure it out. Actually, here is a link you can use.

    4. Brother.... I mean in this post
      VA - Tribute Songs to Dead Musicians (A Butterboy Compilation) CD1+CD2+CD3


      There I can't to comment

    5. Hi Rockstalgia.
      I updated the links but gave you the wrong connection link. Apologies.
      here is a link to the new links.

  4. Thanks Butterboy. Excellent selection on this theme. Just a small mistake on 37: Bobby Taylor's song is "I Can Feel The Pain" not Rain (see The Motown Anthology), song also covered by Ivy Jo Hunter.

    1. Hi USMAN47.
      That is embarrassing.
      Poorly tagged on my part although I see that Last Fm also lists the song as "I Can Feel The Rain"
      if you want to select a new track I will update the file accordingly.

    2. Thank you for the answer but whatever the title this version is excellent as well as that of Ivy Jo Hunter. I even have another unreleased by David Ruffin (1968).

    1. Thanks, lemonflag.
      Never thought of it that way, but it makes complete sense.
