I’m expanding on Michael Wycoff as we lead off with Do You Really Love Me. I had Sharon Redd on my mind for a little while so Can You Handle It was pulled out. Gladys, Stacy, and Michael lead the way to Manhattan Transfer’s Spice Of Life, which I hadn’t heard in more than 10 years. Michael Franks, Minnie Riperton, and George Benson led the way to Michael Henderson’s In The Nighttime, an honest to goodness classic. Rounding out the set are three tracks which were requested by Morena, Oh Honey, Sunshine, and This Must Be Heaven along with a track for Wayne called The Roulette Wheel Of Love. Those four tracks round the set out nicely.
Bonus points: 1) Who’s the producer of When You’re Far Away? 2) Who’s the producer of Jump Into My Life?
