The well influential DJ Francis Grasso came to mind when mentioning the said book so after a bit of googling a live recording of Francis Grasso in 1971 by Luis Mario was unearthed on soundcloud.

From that Soundcloud mix an excellent tribute to Francis Grasso at The Sanctuary was found. It’s a mix of over an hour and a half by DJ Luis Mario (who recorded Francis Grasso at The Sanctuary) featuring tracks by Curtis Mayfield, Freda Payne, Booker T & the MG’s and Rufus Thomas and a lot lot more.
