The two groups The Brand New Heavies (with N’Dea Davenport) and The Young Disciples
(featuring vocals by Carleen Anderson) start off this set, followed by the duo Izit with Izit Everywhere. Soul Family Sensation’s wonderful track I Don’t Even Know If I Should Call You Baby leads up to one of my all-time favorite groups from England, D-Influence, with Journey.
A wonderful track from Repercussion’s Earth And Heaven follows, entitled Turn Your Card.
Light Of The World, the precursor to the group Incognito, follow with London Town. Since Light Of The World is in this mix, it stands to reason that they are followed up by Incognito’s I Love What You Do For Me.
Galliano’s Welcome To The Story and Digable Planet’s well known track Rebirth Of Slick (Cool Like That) is followed by Groove Collective’s Everybody (We The People). One of my favorite tracks from Donald Byrd, Love Has Come Around is followed by Swing Out Sister’s underrated Ordinary People and the entire set is capped off with the incomparable flautist Bobbi Humphrey’s Harlem River Drive.
This time I don’t have my voice included due time constraints and recording issues. I hope to fix these issues for the next ‘cast. Hope you enjoy. Special shoutouts go to J. Brotherlove, Mr. Fresh, and Chica for pushin’ it on through. Enjoy.
