So nice, I had to do it twice. For this one, I try to ensure that the I cover all of the bases, and comcemtrate on tracks that have special meanings to some of the peoeple that I know who were serious fans of Uptown.

I believe I could have used Father MC’s “Lisa Baby”, but I didn’t have enough room, and I had to drop the classic “I’ll Do For U” with Mary J. Blige. Heavy D and The Boyz’ “More Bounce” was a request from Theresa which I had never listened to. It’s a great track and compliments the tracks around it well, case in point Finesse and Synquis’ “Soul Sista” which keeps the momentum going.

I always enjoy instrumentls, and “Teddys Jam 2” is classic. It’s followed by what I onsider two of the most forgotten hip hop/new jack swing track, “Whee Were You” and “I’ll Be There” which Special thanks to Sharon and Grroove who taught me about Groove B Chill. THe last tracks slow ou down a but and end with Jodeci’s rendition of the Stevie Wonder classic, “Lately”.

Special, special, special thanks to Theresa, T Grundy, Gene “Groove” Allen, KB, Grnt Love, Chris Christopher, Nikki, Macedonia, and Arnold. Your feedback is always encouraged. Take it light.
