    Jodeci were great! I think it was much harder as time went on for artist to have the longevity and broad fan base as artists developed in the 60s. Radio formats became more segregated, so fewer people heard the individual artists.

    A classic. I sing this word-for-word when it plays in the radio. Good thing I normally am alone in my car!

    Quincy Jones' "The Dude" LP is one of my favorites. It introduced us to James Ingram with two of his best songs. I think this song is timeless:

    This is my favorite Patti LaBelle song. She is probably the only person who could sing this song with this much power and soul while still being as nuanced on every note.

    Timeless is right! One of the greatest songs ever and one of the most underrated singers. James Ingram is amazing.

    Here's one I associate with 1981 and the good times we had then:

    Quincy and his crew could not be beat in 1978! I dare you to stay still during this one.......LOL!

    It is one of the greatest and from the soundtrack of my life. James Ingram was an incredible singer. He knew how to put a song across! Thanks for this one Luciano!

    Can only find one release by Melvin Bliss but really like it. This is the A Side (Reward). The B side Synthetic Substitution is actually the more well known track. Been sampled a bunch of times. I prefer this one though

    Word was that she sang her part on the east coast and he added his in California. I'd love to know who did the second part because he or she had to blend. Two professionals at work.

    Same here. I remember you heard it everywhere you went in Philly and Jersey that summer all down at the shore etc.

    I remember driving around out State Ohio in the Spring of 1991 and blasting this one out the windows. I miss Luther:

    Let's go back......wayyy back! Recorded in January 1959 and released in February 1961. James Brown and "Bewildered"!

    I used to love me some Archie Bell & the Drells (I think I already added "Tighten Up" to this thread):

    And this one, too:

    And the Drifters are my favorite classic group going all the way back to Clyde McPhatter. I was playing them in the '80s when everybody else was discovering Keith Sweat and Guy.

    My Pops was a huge Clovers fan. By default, so am I:

    We had all of those songs on 45 back in the day. I can't believe somebody either threw them all away or gave them to somebody.

    All of ours are in a cabinet in my parents basement. Hundreds of them.

    Remember this one? They played the notes of "Good Time" at half-speed and came up with a jam.

    The Isley Brothers' T-Neck catalog is phenomenal. This is one of those occasions when I didn't realize how great a band was until I looked back years later and took inventory. The other good example of that for me is Cameo. Both bands had hit after hit for nearly a decade but probably fall short in a lot of fans' recollection of who was great in their respective periods.

  41. #591
    Heatwave is still my favorite band. As I stated plenty of times before, Rod Temperton remains my all-time favorite writer. And the Wilder brothers were a heck of a tandem. After a great debut on "Too Hot To Handle", they returned with what may be my singular favorite album of all time, "Central Heating".

    Long years ago, I was not a fan of Chaka Khan. I thought that she screamed too much on her records and got by with personality over talent. Then I paid to see a concert with Rufus, Slave, and the Brothers Johnson. I was a big fan of the other two bands. But even though I was staying around just to get my money's worth, she blew me away. She has been one of my favorite singers since then. This song is underrated.

    I love Jam and Lewis. This song represents the best of what they did with Cherrelle. I was going to add "and Alexander O'Neal" but I can't even pick a favorite song by him. They took him to another level.

  44. #594
    Alexander O'Neal's "Hearsay" was great. It ranks close to Heatwave's "Central Heating" near the top of my list. Every single song brings back memories when I listen to them. A great collection of dance records and ballads.

    I met Cherrelle at a club in Detroit back in the 80s. Nice girl.

    That was a jam all Winter in 1980 even if you did not roller skate!

    Who could forget this anthem from the summer of 1979:


  48. #598
    A very powerful song from some very pretty ladies......Stargard!


  49. #599
    Ah yeah! The break out dance of 1977-78.... "Le Spank"
