If you notice, Rick James and Mary Jane Girls are together, with Lenny White, Roger, and The Fatback Band bringing in the funk.
My personal favorite is Dayton’s rarely-heard cut, The Sound Of Music, which is a song I never, ever get tired of hearing.

I was thinking about The Family when I decided to include ABC’s The Look Of Love (Thanks, J.) Joe Jackson’s Steppin’ Out is followed by the former Level 42 bandmember/producer Wally Badarou with his instrumental Chief Inspector, one of my other favorites from back in the day. LL Cool J’s Around The Way Girl is followed by Zhane’s You’re Sorry Now (another great cut from them).

We’re finishing up with Al Jarreau’s Morning, Johnnie Taylor’s Your Love Is Rated X, and Patrice’s classic Remind Me.
