I have this thing for the Junior track, which I hadn’t heard in a while, Barry White (with production from Jam and Lewis), Maysa (co-written and background vocals by Siedah Garrett), and the unmitigated Eagles.
The Soul II Soul instrumental is a nice touch, while Highland Place Mobsters’ track is a short clip demonstrating what they were capable of.

    I have to admit, I only know 5 of the 14. Thanks for the eclectic mix you guys. Beautiful slow jams (esp. the Mobsters’s cut & Rockie Robbins). Much love ~

    Thanks for the shot out, EJ. Hope you’re feeling better.
    Rene & Angela is a nice way to start off this OSW.
    That MacBand track reminds us all of the powerful yet melodic LA & Babyface sound. Can they get back together again? LOL
    I didn’t know Highland Place Mobsters had released an album. I only remember the song they had on the Boomerang soundtrack.
    Good job, as always, on putting up such an easy-flowing mix.

    Love that Eagles cut. EJ, if you haven’t heard the live version, you need to download it.

    Rene and Angela! I’m grinning from ear to ear! “Love No Limit” brings back such good memories. Thank you!
    I hope you feel better.

    This is a dead of the night Batman blogger fly by
    Man, up late with nothin to do and the S2S instrumental podcast is bluescreened. It’s a slow night in ATL, and even slower on my sofa.

    Love the juxtaposition of the Eagles’ classic “I Can’t Tell You Why” with Howard Hewett’s wonderful “I’m For Real” because Howard did a beautiful cover of that Eagles song several years ago.
    Like Ms. Alex, many of these songs are new to me, too.
    Man, talk about a collection of hidden gems! Soul II Soul is always right! The Mac Band reminds me of the whole New Jack Swing era and the Teena cut reminds me that there were a lot of great stuff on her “Passion Play” disc.
    Excellent mix, EJ!
