OSW: Autumnal Equinox, Volume 2

I keep saying I’m going to get into the swing of things, but I’m mostly just relaxing these days. I’m behind on my reading, and need more sleep, but I’ve got time for the music. Here we go…..

School Wednesday: Autumnal Equinox, Volume 2.

01 – Confunkshun – Straight From The Heart
02 – Anita Baker – Will You Be Mine?
03 – The Isley Brothers – Groove With You
04 – Chante Moore – Wey U
05 – Angel Grant – Kisses Luv Lips
06 – Bill Withers – Lovely Day
07 – Marvin Gaye – Heavy Love Affair
08 – Donald Byrd – Wind Parade
09 – The Main Ingredient – Happiness Is Just Around the Bend
10 – Boz Scaggs – Lowdown
11 – Slave – Wait For Me
12 – Aurra – Who Are You?
13 – Leo’s Sunshipp – Give Me The Sunshine
14 – Stevie Wonder – Superwoman (Where Were You When I Needed You)

While I personally think the whole selection is great, I’ve definitely been into Leo’s Sunshipp’s track, Give Me The Sunshine, which you can get from Midnight Soul, Volume 2, as well as We Need Each Other, which is what I picked up last weekend.
Wind Parade is from Mizell, which is a Mizell Brothers compilation which I’ve constantly been rotating. If you’re a fan of Donand Byrd and Bobbi Humphrey, I’d advise you to pick the CD up. Qamar got me into Slave, so I’ve been rotating Show Time/Visions Of The Lite this week. Then there’s Aurra’s Who Are You, which Fresh! got me into, and…well, as you can tell, I could go on and on about this music.

Hope you enjoy it.

    Will You Be Mine… One of my favorite songs of all time, boy!!!
    Donald Byrd, b!tches…
    That Angel Grant cut is evil. I have to sample that…
    Boz Scaggs? Always…
    I’ve never been a big fan of “Superwoman” by Stevie, but “Where Were You When I Needed You” tagged at the end of the song is incredible.

    @Berry: LOL! Never thought about it that way! Glad you like it!
    @Todd: I had to actually go back and look at the Angel Grant CD and it turns out that doesn’t fit the technical definition of old school. Still good stuff though, especially considering Terry Lewis is on bass.

    EJ, What can I say man, Your collection impresses me week to week. I thought I dug pretty deep.
    Me, you & Todd need to get together to do the Ultimate samples session.
    …I had that Donald Byrd joint on my next “Sampled Originals” Playlist… You beat me to it man!!
    …I thought I was the only one who was up on Leo’s Sunshipp..Their instrumentals are incredible.
    …Aurra, Nice pick…Salsoul’s roster was incredibly underated, Salsoul Orchestra, Double Exposure, Anthony White, Aurra, Eddie Holman, Love Commitee, Whew!!! I’m gonna have to do that as a playlist….Holla!!
    Peace & Love

    Hi EJ. Another Good set from u. Without asking u 2 divulge inside info, what are the criteria for ‘old skool’?
    That Chant� Moore track is one of BabyFace’s best compositions. And Angel Grant was such an underrated act.

    Loving this one!
    Slave (always a favorite!), Aurra, the very under-appreciated Chante Moore, Stevie!
    Thanks again, EJ.

    dang EJ you did it this time…Anita Baker, Chante Moore…Marvin Gaye *swoon*
    lol!! Have a great week and weekend!

    Bro, how do you do it? What a great compilation. Thanks as always.

    @Grant, all I wanna do when I grow up is be like you. Thanks, man.
    @Thierno – in 10 words or less, old school Wednesday is anything 10 years old or older. I broke that rule with Angel, but the flow was already there and it would have required me to change the radio blog, and I wasn’t willing to do that. You will see that VERY rarely.
    *pulls candles away from Nikki…LOL*
    @Qamar – I try to do it every week. You keep me on my toes each and every time.
    @ceecee – you know how we do.
    @J – it’s definitely a labor of love.

    hey, if you want soul have a listen to Felton Pilate’s new album “Nothing but love spoken here”, it’s filled with soft smooth ballads. Maybe you already knew, but Felton used to be a member of ConFunkShun (and still is?)! There are a lot of good songs on his new solo album, “Be my baby” is my personal favorite. Check out his website to find out more about him: http://www.feltonpilate.com
