OSW: Post SXSW

Alright, I’m just getting back from vacation, and I’m trying to collect my thoughts. This was a phenomenal vacation, and I need to get my thoughts together and catch up in the workplace.

  1. OSW does it again! I was looking for Q’s the Dude CD this weekend! I can’t remember when was the last time I heard “Don’t Push It, Don’t Force it”, and George Benson’s “I Just Want to Hang Around You”..Classic! I’m starting my Wednesday morning off right!
    Oh, I believe the mastermind for “Save the Overtime” was Leon Sylvers. I think that’s from the “Visions” album

  2. ‘Can U Help Me’ was my jam! My boyf (now husband) & I loved his album (although almost no one else did). Our album is scratched and we can’t play it now, but I am hitting repeat on this one!! Thx.

  3. EJ…you done did it now!! LOL Thanks for taking me back with that Melba Moore song. *memories like the corner of my mind….*

  4. Welcome back, EJ. How come u didn’t swing by Houston on your way back – LOL
    I told u your blog is ‘edutainment’. I always thought/ assumed ‘Save the overtime’ was a Kashif production. Now I know better, thanks to the folks who constantly share their knowledge of music in general. I appreciate it. Oh, and it goes without saying that I enjoyed this week’s set as well.
    Peace

  5. Moni is the winna, winna, winna! Master-producer Leon Sylvers is the man behind the Gladys Knight track. A brilliant piece, if I say so myself.
    But I’m loving the Skyy, Quincy Jones, and Melba Moore tracks today.
    Well done, Eric. And welcome home.

  6. Welcome back EJ!
    Jesse Johnson, Faze-O (where did you find that!?!?), Benson, Skyy, and Gladys all conjure wonderful memories.
    “I Just Want To Hang Around You” is one of a handful of songs that always remind me of a very special lady. Damn, you got me reminiscing.
    Thanks for another excellent mix!

  7. “Can You Help Me” is one of my favorite tracks! Jesse can perform magic with a guitar! I honestly think that his skills kept Prince on point.
    Jesse and Alexander O’Neal are number one on my list of favorites. Thanks!

  8. Can You Help Me? The Dude? Oh my God…I have done nothing else this morning but listen to these two cuts. You know I ::heart:: you, EJ. Lovin’ this one!

  9. What’s sick about this is E knows i use to have a si ck obsession with Stacy Lattisaw back in the day!!!
    HA HA!! And there’s the ‘pink one’. Jesse Johnson. Man, you should’a rocked “I Want My Girl”, the stupidest love song ever. “Can You Help Me” was the ish, though!
    And Wifey’s gonna like the assist from George Benson.
    Bangin’!!

  10. Oh EJ! *bowin’ down, giving da dj EJ mad props* you got Ridin High on here! OH.MY.GAWD! That is one of my all-time favorite Roller Skating jams…sadly enough I never knew the artists’ name, but baby I can MOVE sumthin on a roller rink to this one!! Whew, I cannot sit still LOLOLOL
    Thanks for making my day, yet again 🙂

  11. And yanno what, I won’t even get started on Jesse Johnson. I had posters of that dude all over my walls growing up. Talk about real.men.wear.PINK!! LMAO This cut and Free World are my two Jesse Johnson Revue faves…
    Okay, done typing LOL LUV YA EJ 🙂

  12. “I’m the new fool in town and my beat’s laid down by…EJ” Thanks for hollarin’ back at me my brother! Loyal til I die! The cut that made me bang on the door to get into the community is definitely “Do It Any Way You Wanna.” If you know Cashmere, you are the REAL DEAL. Look for the Big Daddy folder on slipback.
