New episode of The Western Reserve is ALL-Colemine Records this time. We curate an hour or so from the catalog of this Loveland, Ohio based label featuring music from Ohio and elsewhere. From the label’s website: “Colemine Records was founded in late 2007 with the simple idea of putting out raw, authentic SOUL music on vinyl. Since then we’ve been lucky enough to grow and work with some very talented artists and bands over the years, and in 2015 we opened up a brick and mortar record store, Plaid Room Records, so that we could continue to expand our little soul label. It’s operated primarily by two guys, Terry Cole and Bob Cole, but the strength of the label is quality
music produced by our artists.”
