OSW: Will’s Birthday Mix

After such an adventurous weekend and a busy week, I’m all tapped out. No theme
here, just good tracks. My imagination is gone. Any takers for an official title? Looks like we’ve got a winner:

Old
School Wednesday: The Untitled Mix Will’s Birthday Mix.


01 – Gary Taylor – Compassion. From the eponymous debut
album.
02 – Zhane – Sending My Love.
From Pronounced Ja-Nay.

03 – Slam/Slam Feat. Dee C. Lee – Giving It Up.
While I was in Philly,
my friends let me into their basement. It was all over. I think I spent at least
6 hours in there. Makes me want to pull out The Style Council.
04 – Mr. Fingers – What About This Love?
More Larry Heard.
05 – Patrice Rushen – Number One [Instrumental].
Grammy nominated cut
from Straight From The Heart.
06 – Patti Austin – Gettin’ Away With Murder.
From the album of the same
name.
07 – Curtis Mayfield – Give Me Your Love [Love Song].
Everyone’s theme
song.
08 – Mary J. Blige – Love No Limit.
Since Mary (read: Sean Puffy Combs)
sampled Curtis Mayfield on her second album, it made me pull this track out. From What’s The 411?
09 – D’Influence – Good 4 We.
From their debut album, which made me spend
most of my college money on cassettes from Great Britain.
10 – Shanice – The Way You Love Me.
From Discovery.
11 – Michael Franks – Now I Know Why [They Call It Falling].
Back when
funk was ever-present in 1985, I bough three copies of this cassette tape and
played this cut endlessly. From Skin Dive.
12 – Stevie Wonder – With Each Beat of My Heart.
From Characters.
13 – Maysa – More Than You Know.
From Maysa.
14 – Earth, Wind & Fire – Fantasy.
From All N’ All.

Happy birthday, Will!

  1. Ahem… I have a suggestion. Let’s name this the HAPPY BIRTHDAY WILL OSW. Dammit. LOL
    Great as always mayne!!!

  2. can i get a b-day mix too – to post on my site for people to hear? – this is a special request of course, today is my bday.

  3. Slam Slam! What a find. There’s about three songs on there that should have been Style Council songs, had their label not dropped them. In fact, “Round and Round” shows up on Paul Weller’s first solo CD. Shame Paul and D.C. split up, but that’s how things go.

  4. What does Will have that I don’t??? *rethinking that question and rephrasing* Umm… more importantly… whycome he got a birthday mix and I didn’t??? *sniffle* *kicking rock*
    Cool mix by the way. =)

  5. woah,
    d-influence. a lot of people always said sarah anne webb sounded like sade, but this whole album was excellent. “good 4 we” is my favourite off this album after “i’m the one”.
    btw, happy belated birthday lynne.
