I started on  this in February and meant to get it done by St. Patrick’s Day, but time wasn’t on my side.  When I finally got a chance to do this thigh, there were so many thoughts in my head that it took a while to get it perfected the way I wanted to; however, because of all that, I believe I have  enough tracks for two more, so  expect a couple more of them soon.

Loose Ends’ Hanging On A String is one of my favorite  tracks of all time, so I had t to  include it.  In fact, this track was released on the US side 33 years ago.  If  that is not considered old-school, then I don;t know what it is.  Welcome To The Club  by Blue Magic was inspired by the Unsung episode about the band.  I had just happened top hear  this version on one of the CDs I purchased which had a  lot of great tracks, this included.

I’m sure that the old school aficionados will love George Duke and Slave, in addition to Donna McGhee, which is a nice mellow groove with some very direct lyrics.   The instrumental Dreaming has an incredible bass line which makes me smile each time I listen to it, and the Joyce Sims track is a smooth track to end with, since it never gets old.   I could go on and on about the other tracks, but I am sure most will agree that this is a nice summertime mix to groove.

Drops from DJ Diva, Macedonia, and G-Dub. Much love to the geezers Wilson (no pressure!), AR Hamilton, Theresa, Alana, and DJ G Dub. Hope ou enjoy.
