OSW: Out Of Thin Air, Volume 10


Spring is almost here and I’ve been extremely lazy, so I had to put NJS on hold this week. Not to worry though. I’m sure you’ll like:


Old School Wednesday: Out Of Thin Air, Volume X.

01 – Colors – Am I Gonna Be The One
02 – Unlimited Touch – Searching To Find The One
03 – Change – Searching (LP Version)
04 – Lisa Stansfield – Live Together
05 – Teena Marie – 365
06 – Alexander O’Neal – You Were Meant to Be My Lady (Not My Girl)
07 – Oleta Adams – Rhythm of life
08 – Minnie Riperton – Perfect Angel
09 – Incognito – Change
10 – Quincy Jones – If I Ever Lose This Heaven
11 – Stevie Wonder – You’ve Got It Bad Girl
12 – Maze Feat. Frankie Beverly – Never Let You Down
13 – Anita Baker – Sometimes

The track Am I Gonna Be The One is a great tune for me, from the group Changes which didn’t have many releases. I’m sure you’re familiar with Unlimited Touch, Change, and Lisa Stansfield’s cuts, which are the staple of the definition ‘old school soul.’ Teena’s wonderful track 365 is from It Must Be Magic, while Alex’s track is from his Alexander O’Neal LP.

After those tracks, I have the triple female threat for you: Oleta, Minnie, and Incognito (with vocals by Maysa). Then there’s the triple male threat: Quincy Jones (with vocals by Minnie) follows, with Stevie Wonder and Maze. Anita Baker’s Sometimes finishes up the mix with it’s understated groove.

Hope you enjoy these grooves. Take it light.

    EJ: Hey, I’m out of town on business with very limited Internet access :-( but you know I just had to find a way to check out my favorite Wednesday morning “radio” broadcast! I don’t have the time to listen to the mix right now, but the lineup looks great (as always). And you dropped Stevie’s “I Got It Bad Girl” as we were talking about last week (I just knew you would!) Can’t wait to hear this one.

    You did it again!
    Unlimited Touch – Searching To Find The One..WOW!!!!
    This was from back in the day and my family would hang out with family/friends in Bayshore, Long Island. We started going out there around late 70’s (77)
    Born and raised to that point in an apartment in Brooklyn it was so cool to be at a house with a pool, dogs, bikes, fishing and when someone had a house party for a birthday or just a block party in general it was just mad refreshing. Pure joy, no stress. r optimism and positivity all around. Just like this cool spot on the internet called EJflavors.com
    Keep it going man. You’re doing past and present music justice.
    ..and keeping all of us listners happy!
    Best!
