I’ll drop more details when I can, but for now, the instrumentations of Mellow Mellow, Right on and Rescue Me should make you smile, since it’s they are used on other well-known old-school cuts.
In addition, Walter Egan and Ambrosia should make you reminisce on the other pop-oriented, well known tracks that were also played in your neighborhood. Hope you enjoy the vibe.

    EJ, you musta been reading my mind. I was listening to Here We Go just yesterday. Minnie and Peabo’s voice sounded so perfect together.
    My favorite line is, “Any second now, I’ll explode. Baby grab your hat now ’cause here we go….”

    Hi,EJ. Fisrt off, hope all gets sorted out with the family emergency.
    Thanks for this great mix. As always, I’m finding out how much good stuff I didn’t know.
    Loose Ends and Atlantic Starr bring back great memories. Breakwater is new to me but I like that song a lot.
