Rod Temperton, volume 2 – need I say more? I love this. “Star Of A Story” is one of my all-time favorite slow cuts, while the cuts from The Brothers Johnson, Bob James and Herbie Hancock had never been heard before until now. Got requests?

    Even better than Part 1. A number of joints I’ve haven’t heard in ages and some I’m hearing for the first time. Rod Temperton is that DUDE. Just an incredible songwriter…

    1. EJ says:

      I wholeheartedly agree with you. His songwriting ability made it fun to pull together. Still surprised about how much has been missed from this guy.

  2. Emeka Okoye says:

    EJ, you have pulled another one. This is far better than the part 1. Best playlist of the one of the best songwriters of our time. Thumbs up 🙂

    1. EJ says:

      thanks. i’m thinking this is the best one i’ve done in some time. still trying to figure out what to do next.

  3. james madison says:

    He wrote Love X Love?!?!?!?!?

    That is my song! Rod’s work just holds up.

    Ah, man, If only Michael, Quincy and Rod could have done one more album together. I’m being greedy and selfish of course, but dang, It would’ve been great to hear some more magic from these guys.

    I’m glad I was born when I was, so that I could appreciate all of this in “real time”.

    (He wrote Love X Love. Sonavagun!)

    1. EJ says:

      yeah man, a lot of the stuff hr wrote were classics. researching him was the most fun i’ve had in a while putting OSWs together.

  4. Soulrific says:

    I’ve always said that Rod was the funkiest white guy in the music industry!

    1. EJ says:

      Rod’s a bad mutha. Thse somgwriters today can learn from him.

  5. Thierno says:

    My top 3 Thriller songs are (in this order) #1-PYT, #2-baby Be Mine & #3-The Lady in my Life. Coincidence that Rod that Rod wrote 2 of the 3? I think not. MJ once said in an interview that he & Rod were in fierce competition for song submissions for Off the Wall. James Madison, I concur with your wish to have heard more from these 3 guys. Another awesome job, EJ. Thank you
