In Rotation: 02/17/2006

I’m still reeling over the passing over Jay Dee, and while I thought about placing him into a radio blog rotating his tunes, I looked around and saw that Todd Kelley had already done it (and a damn good job he had done too), and Jay Smooth had links to others, so there was no need to redo something that had been done so perfectly.

Well, less than 24 hours later, I had received word that Lynden David Hall had died from cancer. He was 31. Todd and Anitra gave me a little inspiration to perhaps focus on England while giving my respects to Lynden. I was more than happy to do so. Presenting:

From one of the greatest abums of 2004, That Day.

  1. Finally, an RB featuring some of my favosite British Soul artists. I really liked Lynden David Hall’s first CD. Now all I need is some Craig David, Mica Paris, Ephraim Lewis and Hil St Soul.

  2. Yolanda says:

    So sad that I get hip to such a talent after he dies. I’ll be bumping this the rest of the evening, and I plan to look into his available music.

  3. Berry says:

    Wow, we are at that age now where the passing of our contemporaries really hits hard. Naturally it hurt when someone ‘caught up” back in the day was taken out but it makes us really reflect on our mortality in these 30-something years.

  4. crazy ain’t it. lyden david hall introduced me to this whole genre of neo soul. couldn’t get enuff of his music.
    i’m sad. rest in peace brethren

    I can’t believe david lynden hall is dead! i wish i had sexy cinderella 🙁

  9. Catherine George says:

    I feel very sadden by the news I was listening to Lynden music the sunday before he died with my sister. I never really heard his album however I thought that his talent was beyond his years and he has a special gift. we need to support British talent more Lyden to me was equivalent to any USA act in his Gendre.
    May his wife and family find comfort that he has left behind more that words can express through the power of music. May those that never knew him visit the music he has left.
    Rest in peace Lynden

    I have got to say this is a sad day he was a great person and was talented writer. His music touch a lot of people I remember buying his first album but what was mad is my sister bought the album on the same day. That was Medicine 4 my pain great tracks I got his last album the day it came out in between jobs. He will be missed thank you for making great music.
