Dell. The last I heard Willie Hutch had put out a couple of CD's out in the last few yrs at least that's what I heard. You know ev'ry time I try to get my messages on this forum or on any hot subjects that crop up, my messages never get thru? Because I know there is plenty enough thread on the other forum on Willie Hutch, cause I got plenty of info I try to get thru but? Anyway, out of all the Motowners I think he reinvented the Motown/LA sound. I mean the westcoast may have had a sound but I think what this man did he rejuvanated and brought it back to life, not just Motown but the sounds of the westcoast period. One can hear it in his sdtrks to movies and film scores. And I can hear it in the samples of the likes of; Too short, Eazy E, Dr. Dre, NWA, Snoop Doggy Dog, E 40, Ice T, Compton's Most Wanted, Spice 1, Ice Cube, Scareface and The Getto Boys and on and on and on. What Willie's songs mean to me where he talks about in the 70's like; money, cars, women, parties, romancin, getting down and fonky and gettin loose. His lp's always a woman on them and one of my favorite's albums of his is Ole To My Lady, that was fly. Also during this time I was listening to Leon Haywood, LeRoy Hudson, Luther Ingram and the party records of Dolamite. My favorite home-videos of his is "Rude", 1979-80.
