I’m sure that most people are familiar with the Patrice Rushen, Shalamar, and Chaka tracks. but may not have had much exposure to Jaki Graham, previously a vocalist for Kiss The Sky, and her track Round and Around. Slave’s Dreamin’ is a great track from Stone Jam that was never released as a single, followed up by a duet from Madonna called Love Song. SOS Band and Leon Sylvers III pave the way for Star Steppin’, a classic steppers tine. DeBarge is followed up with a track I had never heard before, Something New. The tracks from The Doobie Brothers, Raydio, and D-Train round out the set nicely.
Much props to Xquizzyt1 for the last mix, Yvonne for helping me track down the Keni Burke track, Pil Hil for helping me out with the intro track, and Macedonia for providing the impetus of unearthing this duet between Madonna and a well known (some would say iconic) artist, Love Song.
