I’d offer a late pass, but I don’t think it needs to be invoked when most of the music compiled is three decades old. House Shoes, ambassador of all things Detroit, drops a mix full of Motor City soul legend Dennis Coffey. A MoTown session man extraordinaire, the tape blends original material and the rap songs that sampled him. All in the name of Coffey’s new album on Strut. Totally awesome decisions, all around.
