What it is.

Soultreats is Soulville U-A´s music blog. It´s updated several times a week with a new soulful record. It is our chance to spotlight the artists and record labels that made the music but rarely the charts.
It´s a celebration!

The legacy.
If you are, know or have any information about the artists, labels or musicians etc. that are mentioned in these pages, please share it with us by sending an email to:

Do not use the comment button for this since there is no way for me, for now, to know which additions have been commented on. Help us be as detailed as we possibly can in our description of this wonderful music.

Thanks in advance.



Jan Jones-Independent Woman-Day-Wood

80s SoulPosted by Martin Fri, February 06, 2009 17:02:03
Ok, last track before the weekend. Soultreats! is back on monday again.

Long before Beyonce and Destinys Child, Jan Jones were singing and celebrating independent women. Released on the Small Day-Wood label, which I think was out of Detroit, she wrote the track herself and also the B-side to the release which is a part 2. I haven´t found any other releases by her which is really a shame since this record is a wonderful cut of modern soul.

Any chance of hearing the B-side?
