    This is a very hot mix of music. I am playing now and I will definitely be playing it at work tomorrow. Nobody hardly plays the extended version of Randy Crawford’s “Streetlife” plus some folks think Lalah was the first to do it. Thanks for it including it and all the other great songs.

  2. Qamar says:

    Cool mix. Nice to hear Starleana Young featured on two tracks: Slave’s “Just a Touch of Love” and Aurra’s “Make Up Your Mind.” Plus Nu Shooz’s Valerie Day sounds like she was influenced by Miss Young on “I Can’t Wait.” But I’m getting a special kick out of “Let Me Be the One”… used to love that first album of theirs!

    ACCCKKK I love this mix. Love, love, love it. And I won’t post 3 comments this time. I LOOOOOOVE ANYTHING Steve Arrington related, so Slave… PERFECTION.
    Umm… I thought you didn’t love me anymore. *sniffle* so thank you for stopping in. CALL ME AT WORK (if you still have the number)!!! =)

    Hotdamn, you took me back to days of running through the dust in Louisiana with these. I can close my eyes and remember the tar bubbling on the street, as the sounds of “Don’t Stop the Music” stream outta the window.
    This gets heavy rotation today!

  5. KB says:

    You get props for no other reason than including the complete version of “Street Life!” That takes me back to hanging out with my cousin. We used to be playing, wildin out until his father threw on that song. We would just stop in our tracks and just listen. Man, Randy Crawford at her best…
    Also that Yarbrough & Peoples joint was the first 12″ single my little 10 year old butt ever purchased with my allowance!

  6. Godizus says:

    EJ strikes again!!Whoo…HOT mix, man! Thanks especially for the Streetlife…brings back some good ol’ memories…..this will HAVE to be a good day!

  7. Nikki says:

    Another winner!! Lawd, that was the only Five Star track that I liked.

  8. Will says:

  9. lynne says:

    thank you – anything that takes me away from Young Jeezy is a ‘ OK – especially since this music takes me back to my youth – got damn! Loose Ends – Slow Down.Change – The Glow Of Love. Chaka Khan – Clouds.

  10. Carla says:

    Dang EJ! I’m going to start calling you “My Human Ipod”. You keep me coming back for more.

  11. todd kelley says:

    yes! yeeeeeeeeeeeeees!!!

  12. EyeGetzRaw says:

    great mix…hearing Street Life just gave me a new perspective on Leela James, who I’d been comparing to Gwen McCrae (Funky Sensation)…definetely hear a little Randy Crawford in her as well.

  13. Bernie says:

    Any mix with D Train is definitely worth listening to.

  14. DJ Diva says:

    OK I’m burning a copy for the car…love the way you organized the list…I won’t even specify…but Streetlife? I see I’m not the only one who can listen to it for more than 6 minutes LOL

  15. **RPM** says:

    Chaka Khan.
    *RPM collapses on floor*
    Her song, “Love Me Still.” (I have a secret to tell you about this song – but will preserve it for IM – hollerate)

  16. Cheryl says:

    Oh no…you dug waaaaaay back to Yarbrough and Peoples Don’t Stop the Music. I always hated that muppet song, but The Crusaders…wow, now that brings back fond memories.

  17. honey says:

    Chaka Khan to Nu Shooz..what a mix! *packing you with ice* Cool down, you burnin us up, LOL

  18. Hey you have been over here since ahem last night I just had to say hi.

  19. Yeah I’m feeling this mix man. You know loose ends is the shit.

  20. rod says:

    Whoa, this is so cool. I can’t choose between The Crusaders or Chaka. I’ll have both, lol.
