As for this mix, anything with Change, Dynasty, and Rick to speed things up, and then giving you Cameo, Jermaine, and Stevie to slow you down has got to touch you in some way or another. Hope you enjoy these grooves. Take it light.

    I’m confident that at the end all this you are now going through you will end up unscathed and standing tall.
    Now, as for the music… I love the choice of “Paradise” by Change as the starting point for the mix. I had forgotten all about RJ’s “Big Time”, really enjoyed hearing that one again. Anything by George Duke is always OK with me, and Carrie’s version of Hello Stranger is nicely different (of course it helps that the song is one of my favorites no matter who’s singing it {smile}). Oh, and Cameo with “Hanging Downtown” is another group known more for their funk sound that could really break it down and get a mellow groove on when they wanted. BTW… get the idea that I’m a likin’ this week’s mix yet? ;->
    When some of the dust settles (or even before), holla at your boy.

  2. Yeah, man!!! Paradise by Change…This joint ROCKED!!!!
    Big Time one of my fav Rick James joints -BORN TO FUNK..WHAAAT?!?!
    Alicia Myers, boy oh boy could this lady sing…No crazy hysterics just good ole sangin’ and hitting the notes when the time was appropriate. Love Alicia Meyers and everything on this OSW Jam!
    Thanks EJ!
