Via Boingboing - "DJ BC has released a second album of "Beastles" (Beatles/Beastie Boys) mashups called Let It Beast. dj BC is one of my all time favorite mashup artists, not least because I love both the Beatles and the Beasties and the way that he mixes them together brings new life to both. He clearly loves his source material dearly, and his treatment of them is playful, artistic, and totally danceable. I'm halfway through the new album, and I'm already in love, especially with Electrified Kite, a remix of "Being for the Benefit of Mr Kite" and "Electrify."

and check this great MP3 blogpost on Esther Phillips....
"... Originally known as Little Esther, Ms. Phillips was a soul chanteuse of the highest order -- and one of the grand pioneering voices of soul music. Her career stretched over four decades, several record labels (including a stint on Atlantic during the soul years), various bands, and a 16 year battle with heroin addiction that nearly destroyed her. It was after leaving rehabilitation that she recorded "Home Is Where The Hatred Is" for the Kudu label in 1971. Its powerful, nearly autobiographical anthem, makes it one of the most painfully beautiful soul records ever made..." More here. I've got a couple of her albums on Kudu, excellent stuff - also worth checking her version of Use Me (Bill Withers).
