    One of my favorite years (I graduated in 1980). I was so conflicted by this album. On one hand, George Benson is so underrated as a jazz artist, I wished that he would only perform jazz, so the album was a disappointment even with the great songs Dinorah, Dinorah, Moody's Mood, and Off Broadway. On the other hand, it was produced by Q at the height of his game and had a huge contribution from my favorite writer, Rod Temperton. There was too much of what I loved to hate it like I wanted to. There is not a bad song on the album.

    I don't know about you, but some songs are musical snapshots for me, bringing back memories of friends I had and things I did. That's what this song does when I hear it.

    I saw George Benson at Red Rocks in Colorado in 1983. I went to a lot of shows that year and his was one of the best! He is extremely talented to be able to sing so well and play so well.

    Jerry, when that album came out I use to wear a green V neck sweater like George had on the cover people use to say I looked like him.......LOL

    When this number dropped in the Winter of 1974-75 we loved it. I always felt it was the shortest, funkiest song hands down!


  11. #511
    It is the tail end of 1976 and this was on my radio.......


  12. #512
    Moving on up to the Mid 80s 1985 to be exact and some my happiest, hardest party years LOL! Sting - "If You Love Somebody Set Them Free"

    Did we do this? My memories of basketball season 1973! "Love Train" by the Mighty O'Jays!!!


  14. #514
    From the Fall of 1983, Rufus and Chaka Khan......."Ain't Nobody"!


  15. #515
    Georgie! George Harrison and "What Is Life" from 1970:


  16. #516
    The Supremeskis again! If you listen closely you can hear Smokey Robinson singing in the background in the a synthesized voice! "Your Wonderful Sweet, Sweet Love"

    Marv you are out doing yourself. Loving the mix you posted tonight!

    Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes - I Miss You from the Summerof '72

    Champaign had two incredibly underrated ballads. Both were hits but neither seems to get played or mentioned anywhere. The first was "How 'Bout Us" and the next was "Try Again":

  20. #520
    This used to be my jam:


    I remember listening to it my first year out of high school.

  21. #521
    At the same time, Bob Marley & the Wailers finally crossed over with this record:

  22. #522
    And this one, as well:

  23. #523
    One of my sincere beliefs is that Jodeci was/is the last true soul band. They had so many fantastic songs that could only be classified as soul even though they were mainly a '90s group.

  24. #524
    And this. K-Ci and JoJo are as timeless for me as Marvin, Stevie, and Michael. Don't pile on me, it's just my opinion.

  25. #525
    Mid-80s. Keith Sweat had a dynamic album and this will be an oldie but goodie for me when/if I'm in my 90s.

  26. #526
    Same Summer. Same discos. Same prime of my life was spent listening to this:

  27. #527
    This one, too. The '80s might be remembered as a great decade for Pop, but in my opinion the R&B from that era was fantastic.

  28. #528
    Guy was so hot.

  29. #529
    Guy's lead singer, Aaron Hall had a hit with this song. The video's heartbreaking take on the already sad song gave people chills.

  30. #530
    This is when Steve Arrington's voice and Mark Adam's bass were instantly recognizable as the sound of Slave:

  31. #531
    I saw them in a concert when I was in high school touring off of this album. They were with Rufus and the Brothers' Johnson.

  32. #532
    And although Mass Production wasn't really one of my favorite bands, they had some of my all-time favorite songs, including "Firecracker".

  33. #533
    A few years earlier, Brick busted with one of the all-time baddest rhythms ever.

    Thank you Luciano. Music is LIFE!

  35. #535
    The Brothers Johnson had a classic for every Black kid who appreciated a great house party. This song was played at all of them.

    Our school's dance team......The Scottettes use to burn up the floor at half time to this song. I use to burn up the floor at the Palladium in NYC back in the day to this one. I know everyone was watching me and my girl! LOL!

  37. #537
    And another fantastic cut from the '70s. If you don't sing it when you hear it, then you can't be a friend of mine.

    I remember driving across town to OSU with my friends in tow, listening to it on the radio.

    Remember this one? I bought the album "Minnie" at the end of June 1979....two weeks later Minnie died.


  42. #542
    I love minnie.

    From Washington DC and one of the coldest, snowiest winters I remember, the Winter of 1975-76. Terry Huff & Special Delivery - I DESTROYED YOUR LOVE :


  44. #544
    Hey marv,true story,when that classic was out,i was trying to reunite my old singing group and i had to learn that lead being a first tenor and it was hard singing it because of the pitch,but i was young and cocky...i killed it!!

  45. #545
    One of the greatest love song of the 80s, maybe not the best video, but a classic all the same.....


  46. #546
    For some reason this song always makes me remember the first time I drove through Camden, NJ in the Summer of 1985. This was a HUGE hit. Rene & Angela and "I'll Be Good"!

    Aww JAI! You were in a group man? First tenor is difficult for almost everyone. How long were you guys together? I use to sing along with that classic every time it came on the radio. It was number one for like 7 weeks in the Detroit-Toledo area. A girls group from my high school performed it very well at our Spring concert in 1976.

    I was in a group for about a week before we broke up over who was going to be the main lead singer! LOL! Our song was the O'Jays "She Usta Be My Girl" and "It's You That I Need" by Enchantment.

    Welcome Tony to Soulful Detroit! I actually remember hearing this record. A DJ in either Detroit or New York use to play it early in the mornings. I can't remember who it was though. Great recording. Thanks.

    I remember thinking during this time that K-Ci would become one of those legendary artist influencing generations.
