OSW: Glide

It’s been a busy, hectic week, so I had to do this on the fly….

Old School Wednesday : Glide
(Problems with javascript/browser? Click here.)

[Podcast/mix available here. Click to play or right click-save as to download.]

01 – Aurra – Make Up Your Mind
02 – Jerry Knight – Overnight Sensation
03 – Fatback – Gotta Get My Hands On Some (Money)
04 – Tom Browne – Thighs High
05 – Bill Summers & Summers Heat – Call It What You Want To
06 – Pleasure – Glide
07 – Donald Byrd – Love Has Come Around
08 – Surface – Falling In Love
09 – Michael Wycoff – Looking Up To You
10 – Minnie Riperton – Adventures In Paradise
11 – Deon Estus – Spell
12 – Heatwave – Sho’nuff Must Be Luv
13 – Deniece Williams & Johnny Mathis – Too Much, Too Little, Too Late
14 – Michael Henderson – Take Me I’m Yours

I won’t lie…everytime I hear Make Up Your Mind, I start playin’ my air guitar. I haven’t heard Spell in quite a while so that made my night. I can’t say enough about Donald Byrd and that’s why Love Has Come Around is in the mix. It’s all about the head-nodder cut from Michael Wycoff– I’m sure you know who sampled from this song. If you’re wondering about the song Falling In Love, it is indeed by the trio Surface. This was one of their first singles ever released (in 1983), and was a U.K. hit. Special daps to Qamar, KB, and the requestors Ronn and Ms. Alex. Enjoy.

    Thanks for including “Love Has Come Around.” Haven’t heard that song since my school daze.

    Michael Henderson keeps poppin’ up in your radio blogs. I’m waiting to see if In The Night Time or Valentine Love will show up soon.

    Yo EJ- What the deal? Hope all is well. Hold it down in Philly, I was just there this past weekend and Jim’s was off the hook.

    EJ, another fantastic mix!
    Can’t get enough of Aurra, Henderson and Minnie. The Surface and Wycoff tracks are new to me… both wonderful.
    “Thighs High” still grooves! I think Janet sampled that for a sweet remix of “Young Love” (now I gotta go look for that cut).
    “Spell” remains a favourite. Thanks for including this one!

    I tell you. When I think I know you, you amaze me again. It’s been like that since what….’84 or ’85. Wonderful! Wonderful! You know that’s Zhane’s “Hey, Mr. DJ” that sampled Michael’s song. I’m gonna dig deeper into the 45’s and 33’s this week. Props to the Dean of Old School. Told ya those Wilder brothers were dangerous!!! Peace from Mob-Town!
