There were several requests that floated by the past couple of weeks, so that made this lineup a bit easier
this go-round. The GAP Band’s Humpin’ was a track that was brought to mind by Anewlis, so Why Leave Us Alone and The Glow Of Love were natural progressions to carry the groove forward. Junior’s Not Tonight was a track that I hadn’t heard in quite awhile, from his album Acquired Taste. Junior’s track is followed by Central Line’s Don’t Tell Me, another one of their tracks played constantly both here and in the UK. Love X Love was one of the requests from Angelicastorm, who is celebrating her birthday this week.

After George Benson,
Tom Browne’s Secret Fantasy and Siedah Garrett’s wonderful The Legend Of Ruby Diamond follow up nicely. Cherrelle’s Home is the perfect segue to Papillon (Hot Butterfly) and The Invisible Man’s Band’s sought after track Along The Way from the album Really Wanna See You.

First Love’s Things Are Not The Same Without You, yet another nice track, is followed up by The Sylver’s PS (The Unfinished Letter) from Concept. Anita and Al close out the set with Feel The Need and We’re In This Love Together, requested by both DarrenKeith Wyatt, who is celebrating his birthday this week as well, and Angelicastorm.
