I’m still reeling over the passing over Jay Dee, and while I thought about placing him into a radio blog rotating his tunes, I looked around and saw that Todd Kelley had already done it (and a damn good job he had done too), and Jay Smooth had links to others, so there was no need to redo something that had been done so perfectly.
Well, less than 24 hours later, I had received word that Lynden David Hall had died from cancer. He was 31. Todd and Anitra gave me a little inspiration to perhaps focus on England while giving my respects to Lynden. I was more than happy to do so. Presenting:
01 – Lynden David Hall – Stay Faithful. From his current album In Between Jobs.
02 – Omar – I Guess. This is from the album Best By Far and is the introducing track. The horn section accentuates this track perfectly.
03 – Shola Ama – All Mine. Written and produced by the members of D-Influence. From Much Love.
04 – Loose Ends – Time Is Ticking. From Look How Long. Lead vocals by Linda Carriere, formerly from Dynasty.
05 – Craig David – Fill Me In. Remember this one? From Born To Do It.
06 – The Sunburst Band – Far Beyond. Joey Negro does it again with this track from Until The End Of Time, one of my favorite cuts.
07 – Lewis Taylor – My Aching Heart. The blue eyed soulster does it as he always does. From Lewis II.
08 – Incognito – Show Me Love. Lead vocals? Why, Carleen Anderson of course. Off of the new album, Eleven.
09 – D’Influence – Magic. One of my favorite cuts from D’Influence is this track. From London.
10 – Jamiroquai – Everyday. Mellow cut from Travelling Without Moving.
11 – Don-E – Me Oh My. From Unbreakable.
12 – Lynden David Hall – Do I Qualify? My favorite track from Medicine 4 My Pain.
13 – Seal – Walk On By (Babyface Remix). I had not realized that Seal remade this song, which has been remade so many times I’ve stopped trying to keep count. From the EP Walk On By.
14 – Magic Number – Suddenly. From one of the greatest abums of 2004, That Day.
15 – Santessa – Irresistible. From Delirium, produced by Stuart Matthewman, the Sade, Sweetback, and Maxwell wunderkind.
May Lynden David Hall rest in peace. Enjoy.
