  1. EJ, Hope everything is OK. Here we go is one of my all time favorites from Minnie. Chante Moore & Kenny Latimore did an excellent remake of that one. Really feelin this vibe today!! Well needed for an early Wednsday morning.
    Good Lookin out.

  2. ~ Hope all is well with the family.
    ~ I’m so tickled…as a kid, my boyf picked the song “Magnet & Steel” as “our song **heehee**
    ~ And next to Prince, Rick James was my next fave. Thanks so much and keep him coming too!

  3. 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….”

  4. 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.
