On January 10th, Angela Bofill suffered a stroke and is now convalescing in Santa Rosa, California, which is why she’s the impetus for this playlist:
I originally started out with one song from Angela, but because of this news, I thought it would be great to expand and drop some of the greatest songs Angela has graced us with.
01 – Angela Bofill – Too Tough
02 – Fred Wesley – House Party
03 – Steely Dan – Do It Again
04 – Angela Bofill – Something About You
05 – Jermaine Jackson – I Think It’s Love
06 – Caron Wheeler – Blue (Is The Colour Of Pain)
07 – Angela Bofill – Guess You Didn’t Know
08 – First Love – Things Are Not The Same (Without You)
09 – Inner Life & Jocelyn Brown – Feel What I’m Feeling
10 – Angela Bofill – Under The Moon And Over The Sky
11 – The Jones Girls – We’re a Melody
12 – Angela Bofill – This Time I’ll Be Sweeter
13 – Rufus – Hollywood
14 – Angela Bofill – I Try
I’ll never forgot I Try which was one of the cuts I played endlessly in high school after a breakup. Talk about a powerful song! Under The Moon and Over The Sky and Bet You Didn’t Know are two other tracks that are rarely played.
With The Jones Girls, Rufus, and Inner Life & Jocelyn Brown on this playlist, some strong songs (from Steely Dan and Jermaine Jackson) as well as some other unforgotten cuts (from First Love, Fred Wesley, and Caron Wheeler), there’s good stuff here.
Much thanks to Thierno and the one and only PhillyKat for the inspirations. Enjoy.
