There’s so many good tracks here. There’s non-melanin soul, like Steely Dan and Curiosity Killed The Cat. In addition to Curiosity, we’ve got 3 other acts from across the Atlantic- Mocca Soul, D-Influence, and Nu Colours.

Mocca Soul was a one-hit wonder from England, which had a song called Sleepless Nights off of the album Persistence Of Memory. After 7’s cut No Better Love was produced by Randy Ran. Patrice Rushen’s Gotta Find It is off of Now.

Take it light.

    Hey Nineteen is the jam! Brings me back to the days of not having a care in the world…save watching Saturaday morning cartoons and chilling!!! Ev King, Bros. Johnson and Jean Carne too!!!

    My Pops played that Jean Carne cut when he used to perform with a band. Always loved that song.

    Once again, I’m smiling and bobbing my head to your groove mix. As always, all of the tracks you select are familiar to me. The After 7 cut is one of my favorite tracks, along with the title cut on the “Takin’ My Time” LP. Kevon Edmond’s voice is incredible! I remember when Steely Dan’s “Hey Nineteen” was on featured on “Solid Gold’s countdown back in the 80’s. I see you whipped out Jean Carne from your bag of tricks. Any chance of you having “Back for More” with Ms. Carne & Al Johnson? Bobby Womack and Lulu did a version in the 90’s.
    Thanks for the journey!
