I’m sure everyone knows all of these songs, but one song that I rarely, if ever, heard on the radio was Teddy’s Jam 2.
It was a shame that Timmy Gatling left Guy due to creative differences, but he always knew how to jam. Rock Me Good was my favorite song from him, especially with background vocals from Alton "Wokie" Stewart. Hope you enjoy.

    Yeah, man, I was worried about you!! Ab-so-lute-ly LOVE this mix!! ~ Keep it uuuuppp!

  2. Thierno says:

    Wow!!!! Levert is definitely an old favorite. Guy’s ‘The Future’ album was so full of jams that it could given us many more singles than we actually got, thanks to Uptown Records’ mis-management. LOL
    Thanks, EJ. Another excellent mix.

  3. Oh how I love Will Downing’s voice!

  4. NinaMM says:

    I Just Want To Be reminds me of summer house parties! Whatever happened to the fine art of throwing a house party? Man…I wish those days. Would. Come back once more. I wish those days. Ne’er. E’r had to go. Cuz I loved them so. 🙂

  5. Nikki says:

    Wow, that’s back in the day when Levert was wearing the jheri curls. And “Computer Love” never grows old. What great combo……..Charlie Wilson, Shirley Murdock and Roger Troutman.

    I’ve been digging your site since the early part of this year. I’ve enjoyed all of the OSWs. I was expecting a Tupac Tribute today. It’s 10 years today since his death.
    Peace and Blessings 2 U

  9. Gina says:

    I am always so amazed by the power and richness of the Levert mens voices! Good selection, as always!

  10. MoniMoni says:

    I agree about Teddy’s Jam 2, it should have received a lot of radio back in the day.
    I was mentioning to a friend of mine that I really miss music. Although *gasp* I am digging Justin Timberlakes “SexyBack” (as I creep to the corner)… 🙂 Hear ya next week?

  11. chica says:

    Oh yeah! Thanks for “Artificial Heart”.

  12. Luke Cage says:

    Timmy Gatling? Wow, now there’s a blast from the past. I LOVED Guy. Gatling is shown on the cover of the first GUY album before Aaron’s brother joined the group. A shame they couldn’t crank out more albums. Teddy seemed to be a control freak. He had creative differences with BlackStreet too. Nicely done as always EJ! Where ya been pardna?

  13. ManNMotion says:

    Jaaaam, oh jaaaaaam, jaaaaammmmm, Teddy jaammmm for me! Man, I used to have this in rotatation all the time!
