Seconds – The Salsoul Orchestra featuring Loleatta Holloway

No words are necessary with this post because there ARE no words that can describe, relate or capture the many aspects of this classic Loleatta track.

This is the Salsoul Orchestra original extended 12″ mix and is the highest quality mp3.

 

If You Wanna Ride,

ride the white pony.

Laid Back was a Danish duo – Tim Stahl and John Guldberg – this is the extended version of the B-side of their single, Sunshine Reggae. Sometimes the B-sides are better.

Dyin’ To Be Dancin’ – Empress

Now, this one really was my jam. Empress. Get into her. Sister Dimension owned this track. This was the sound of Whisper’s ( Sunday night at Pyramid. ) The levels on this rare 12″ mix are all over the place – so be ready for some ear bleed. It’s worth it though – the “rap” is hilarious but then again, this was 1981. Any lyric that starts off with a desperately shreeking, “Somebody help me!” is good for me. I hear you babe… I’m dying to be dancing.

Prelude Records made it happen. -Written and performed by Crown Heights Affair.  – Produced my William Anderson and Raymond Reid.

Vocals are by Gail Smith.

Crank it.

Join Me At The Monster NYC for Disco Classics

I’ll be there tonight from 6 to 10 PM filling in for Bunny. The last time I did this the staff freaked out and the dance floor was full from 6:30 onward. I’m not the type to boast so I won’t tell you I received a very gracious and surprising round of applause after my set! I do it all for the dancers.

Come and dance – I’ll be doing it all for you.

The legendary MONSTER NYC – 80 Grove Street – ( Gay Ground Zero  )-  from 6PM till after dark.

It’s their 32nd Year on the Square , Sheridan Square.

I’ll be there next Sunday too but it might be very crowded after tonight!

2 Essential Michael Tracks for Your Massive Library

free_music_online

So young and so perfect.

That’s Quincy Jones’ masterful touch you’re hearing. The track was co-produced by Michael and Quincy. I consider it to be perfect. There is no fat, it’s trimmed down and reduced to a sonic crystalline structure that can exist as pop. ( ? )

Mastah Q do more with less.

(Funky grasshopper learn big lesson on dance floor.)

Funky grasshopper think lyric have Buddhist flair. Also same message that Jesus spread…”You’re just another part of me.”

The Medicine Song

Go on and take it. This song will only ever be “Susan’s Favorite.”

Good times. Further proof that the music in the ’80s was better, but take note: Stephanie’s voice is just as good today if not better . TOLD.

This video is one of my faves – now I remember why. Green screen leotards and Stephie in nurse drag? A little magic involving a ring and a handsome doctor? No wonder! Stephie made it through in style. Love me my Stephanie Mills. What a talent…I have pics from her show last night  at B. B. King’s. I’ll be posting those tomorrow. I won’t be posting the heartburn from the BBQ platter. God Bless.
