Hey Man! Records on Vinyl Voyage Radio

I love supporting independent artists. Our goal here at Vinyl Voyage Radio is to simply play the best music, both past and present. I recently met with Rick Vines from Hey Man! Records in Chicago. Last fall, we featured his new album for the month of September. It's a great album and one thing I can say: Chicago is full of artists like Rick who deserve to be heard.

That is why we feature new music and new artists every month. To give you, the listener, something different---something perhaps better than what you'll get from traditional streaming services.

This month, we are featuring artists exclusively from the Hey Man! Records family. We have over 120 tracks from recent Hey Man! releases in rotation, with extra doses on Thursdays throughout the month of May. Take a listen. You may love what you hear.

More information about the artists can be found at Hey Man! Records.

"Make It Easy on Yourself" by Jerry Butler

I love Jerry Butler. He is the "Iceman" and one of the most underrated soul artists of the 60s and 70s. Although he is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, he is there as a member of the Impressions, but not as a solo artist. This needs to be corrected.

The Song of the Week is one of his first hits on the pop charts, written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David: "Make It Easy on Yourself."  Scroll down to see him perform a live version of this song.

I am not sure when this version was recorded, but her is Jerry Butler performing the song live, along with several others.
