OSW: CH – Valentines Day, 2008

And I’m back. My apologies for the mini-vacation, but I’m 95% better than I was. Without further ado, since tomorrow is Valentines Day, going to drop this a day early…it’s the Cupid’s Hunt podcast, bought to you by Mr. Todd Grundy:

To make this blend stand out, I wanted to ensure that none of the tracks here were in Valentines Day 2006 or Valentines Day 2007, were predominately from the 80s, and were not considered major hits upon their release, but were very memorable to me. For instance, not many people remember Curtis Hairston Liz Hogue or Pockets, but were vocalists in their own right. In addition, there were recording artists that were part of major acts that came out with their solo LPs, such as Chris Jasper, Ernie Isley, and Rene Moore. While all of these tracks are memorable, I’ve got to say that Bill Withers, Liz Hogue and Lisa Stansfield stand out in my mind.

There’s more in the podcast of course , so if you’re inclined, take a listen. Hope you enjoy. Stop by periodically, as the other podcasts that give homage to Valentine’s Day will be listed here as they become available.

    Glad you’re feeling better E!
    The tracks here are on the One!
    I haven’t heard that Hairston track in a bit. Cool little tale. I was visiting my Grandmother at a hospital on Roosevelt Island in 2005 and I saw former NY Knicks gurad Earl “The Pearl” Monroe who signed Curtis to his “Pretty Pearl” record label…should have asked him them if he had copies of “I Want You (All Tonight)” that is my jam!
    Feeling “I Can’t Wait” by Loose Ends. The Kenny Green penned ‘Love No Limit” is the most timeless cut MJB ever recorded.
    Earth, Wind is Fire…Kudos..Pockets, R.J., Ernie….
    A great V-Day’ mix.
    Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone.
    Best E!

  3. Fresh says:

    Glad you are feeling better. Man….Kashif, Loose Ends (Symptons of Love)….excellent tracks!

  4. Nikki says:

    Two Loose Ends songs? Excellent!

  5. EJ says:

    Thanks Nikki! That second one is mostly an interlude since it’s only about 1 minute and a half long…let me state that…..

  6. Thierno says:

    EJ, glad you are feeling better. The OSW kinda shows you are in high spirits. Great tracks, albeit I am only familiar with a couple such as Kashif, MJB & RJ.
    Thanks for managing to give us such rare music while convalescent.

  7. DJ Diva says:

    Podcast Godfather…you had me with the first song! “Stone Love” had me doing the freak in my office yesterday! LOL Not to mention Curtis and Liz…you the best Sensei! Happy V-Day!

  8. Karen Mills says:

    Wow. I was JUST listening to Kashif’s “Lover Come Turn Me On” and RJ’s First Arrival’s “Heaven in Your Arms.” So funny. Glad you’re doing better. =) You should hear what I’m listening to now!!! You would be sweating it!!! LOL

    ~ Lakeside…nuf said. Happy Birthday, Grantlove. Glad you’re feeling better, EJ! Miss *talking* to you guys like I used to. Be blessed.

  10. strollin says:

    Do you have “I Count the Hours” by Rene Moore? Thanks,

  11. Lee says:

    You mentioned Pockets in your post. Man I didn’t think ANYBODY else remembered them. I searched for “Posada” and “Come Go With Me” for YEARS before I found a greatest hits album last year. Love Pockets…and just about anything else that is associated with Earth Wind and Fire.
