It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of another member of the Numero Group family. Central to Eccentric Soul: Mighty Mike Lenaburg, this pioneering figure in the Arizona music departed January 15th. Beginning in 1962, Lenaburg began issuing singles by a Who’s That? of Phoenix artists, including Sheila Jack, Michael Liggins, Small Paul, Ronnie Whitehead, Lon Rogers, We The People, the Newlyweds, and the soul trifecta of Super Souls, Soulsations, and Soul Blenders. Over the next 50 years, Lenaburg engaged Phoenix scenesters via multiple record stores, record labels, and radio shows, and was even inducted into the Arizona Blues Hall Of Fame in 2013. It is the Numero way to remember people through their music. Likewise, we encourage you to check out (or revisit) the soul music oasis afforded to us by the Mighty Mike Lenaburg.

Eccentric Soul: Mighty Mike Lenaburg is available on CD/2LP at our webstore.
