Happy Birthday Paula grooveparlortv

Happy Birthday Paula 'Grooveparlor TV' Harris!!!!

47 tracks by legendary Chicago artists or labels or connections in under an hour. Yes I probably could have played all the tracks a lot longer / done a 10 hour epic / saved some for the next 3 years etc, but I kind of like this one.
