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:
The Untitled Mix Will’s Birthday Mix.
01 – Gary Taylor – Compassion. From the eponymous debut
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
07 – Curtis Mayfield – Give Me Your Love [Love Song]. Everyone’s theme
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.
