The Jacksons, Switch, Stevie Wonder, and Quincy Jones were a natural progression for me, particulary because of the horn arrangements of each one. Also, Another Star happens to be one of my favorite Stevie Wonder songs. Ashford & Simpson’s great It Seems To Hang On is followed by The Escoffrey’s Look Who’s Loving Me, a track I had not heard in more than 15 years.

Shoutouts go to G-Fresh for James Perry’s April Lady, a solid track. This is followed by the instrumental Chief Inspector, by Wally Badarou, one of the forces behind Level 42. Vertical Hold’s You Can’t Go Wrong is followed by Chuckii Booker’s most popular track, Games. These tunes are followed by Starpoint’s All Night Long and Fredrick’s Gentle (Calling Your Name), brought to the forefront by B.
