    Posted: Mar 26 2008 at 5:15am
   Carl Dixon, who was a long-standing member
of the Sixties Detroit forum, has assembled a
Large group of Stellar Detroit musicians for a session
featuring music that Carl has written.
     Most of the Funk Brothers,Dennis Coffey,Gil
Bridges,Spyder Turner, and others are featured
on this session. Dennis's wife, Millie is writing a
Blow-By-Blow discription of the session on the
Soulful Detroit Forum at this time.
     
This session was a dream come true for Carl.
He had told me of this dream session when I met him
at the Soulful Tale Of Two Cities project in Detroit.
     I wish Carl the best with his effort to keep
Detroit mucic alive.
   
I am sure that Ray Monette, and Spyder Turner
will let us know how the session went, and inform
us all the details. I am very proud of Carl for
making his dream come true.

This is an important project.
 
I'm wondering if more members would see this if it was under Music General???
 
Just a thought.  I found it but I think some folks look in MG primarily.
 
I'd love to hear progress and updates because I definitely want to purchase whatever is produced.
 
I second Mixey's emotion - would love to see Carl join the planet.  He's a worthy contributor to any forum!!

     I just finished a long e-mail to Carl, and invited him to join the forum.
  It may take him a while to respond, but I'm sure he will give us a good look.
     I urged him to inform other former members of Sixties to give us a look
also. Carl is a great guy, and I know he will want to communicate with
everyone here.
     "Hold on-He's Coming!"

I agree Carl will be a great addition. I met him in London when he came to Jimmy's show, he's a very nice man.

   I got a letter from Carl, and he is going to give our forum a look.
 He sounds very busy, and it may take him a while, but I think
when he sees our forum, he will join in on the fun here. Lets hope
he does!!!!! Maybe he will give us a preview of his session. That would be
very cool. Carl has a lot of fans here on the Planet !!

We can see SpyderMan laying down soulful notes with Pree McMurray & Spyder's daughter, Gayle Butts.  (Correct me if I'm wrong, Spyder.)
 
I can't wait to hear the results!!!!
