Andre Harrell, the head of Uptown Records, is gone but definitely not forgotten. In his stead, he helped launch the careers of Guy, Mary J. Blige, Heavy D and The Boyz, amd Jodeci. However, these tracks hold a significance. If you can remember at least half of these tracks, then I am sure you can remember where you were when these tracks came out. FOr myself, I can remember being in Lincoln, Nebraska on a project, listening to Mary J. Blige’s “What’s THe 411” and hearing Love No Limit for the first time, causing me to walk around a neighborhood several times listening to track several times. And yes, there are definitely more examples.

I am very grateful for Theresa, T Grundy, Garfield, Eric, Jeffrey, and the onle and only Gene “Groove” Allen. Your feedback is always encouraged. Take it light.
