    Yeah, I remember Informer. That was one of those songs that I liked while I couldn't stand the guy performing it. LOL. Another one-hit wonder.

    Thinking about reggae-influenced one-hit wonders, here's another one for you:

I'd find out that Roger was fond of that g-string in the early 80's when I saw him and Zapp play in Columbus. Truly a showman and a great musician. And if all the stories I heard about him are true, he's was a remarkably generous man as well.
    Oh he was a really nice guy. I'm met quite of few musicians and so-called "stars" and Roger was one of the really cool, down to Earth individuals. That night I met him, he actually asked me how they were doing and if they sounded good. This was the mid-90s and he had performed all over the World by that time!

    YES!
    I remember Cobra! How about Shabba Ranks?


  4. #854
    Shabba Ranks blew up with Mr. Loverman back in the day. This played for a long time on the radio and on MTV/Video Soul.

    I've been hearing this a lot lately on the Lyft commercial:

    You always pick some very good ones. Is that Jerry with them on this one?


  10. #860
    I think he was gone when they recorded this one.

    Oh yeah! It seemed like that song played for years and never got old.

  15. #865
    I remember when Maze's live album from New Orleans broke. That's my favorite live album, easily. Frankie Beverly deserves more credit for being one hell of a band leader. I put him right up there with Maurice White, although Maze never crossed over like EWF.

    I had a great video of them doing that one live at the Brooklyn Fox with Murray the K in my personal collection.

  18. #868
    I found that exact clip online.....check them out!


  19. #869
    A favorite of mine from 1968, Al Wilson and "The Snake"

    More good stuff marv.

    Okay, let me introduce you to my high school years. This is from one of the very first albums I bought. I was going to start a thread with soul/R&B songs with great guitar solos and it was going to be one of them.

  22. #872
    This is also from one of the first ten albums I ever purchased. It's one of my favorite Jeffrey Osborne songs. I used to love that voice.

  23. #873
    This is from Heatwave's second album. There is not a bad song on that record and I could have put any of them here, but this one is underrated and a jam.

  24. #874
    My favorite Bar-Kays record after their Memphis days. We played the heck out of this at my high school.

  25. #875
    This one was playing on the school jukebox every day for three months in my junior year.

  26. #876
    Speaking of Twennynine, this was such a fun song when I was in my first year of college.

  27. #877
    That same year, this song was blowing me away. I sing it every time I hear it.

  28. #878
    This, from the same year.

  29. #879
    And this. Bob Marley finally crossed over with this cut. That was a great time for music, in my opinion.

  30. #880
    And when Steve Arrington became the lead singer for Slave, they took off. I can't even tell you my favorite Slave song but this is top five.

  31. #881
    And if somebody ever suggested that you can't mess with classic soul by covering it in your own way, Roger Troutman had no problem telling that person "hold my beer" as he proceeded to do it anyway.

  32. #882
    And wrapping up from the late '70s/early '80s, I'd be remiss if I didn't put on something by my favorite band from that era of my life. This album is another that didn't have a bad song on it. Love me some Cameo.

  33. #883
    Jerry, I can tell what your favorite era was.......LOL! Great selections all!

  34. #884
    One of my favorites by the Bar-Kays.....the long version!


  35. #885
    Don't forget this one, one of my favorite funk songs which is the only record I can recall that used percussion as a lead instrument in a solo. Still not sure about the lyrics, though... LOL.

  36. #886
    Another big Bar-Kays favorite mine......"Holy Ghost"! 1978!

    Pockets had that one great album. I don't recall anything else by them. My brother used to love this one:

    I need to find time to go the new funk museum in Dayton. So many great funk acts have roots there, including Sun. This was also a fantastic album.

    It did spook me a bit because I thought I may have hit send twice. LOL! I loved that period of the Bar-Kays music. They were killin' it! I did finally get to see them in concert at the old McNichols Arena in Denver in 1981 and they put on a fantastic show.

    I think the lead singer was from Queens, NY.

    That was in the Spring of '78 and my best buddy Kenny at time loved that record! I go down the street and we'd walk to school together before leaving he'd have that playing on the box in his room. The good ole days!

    I have recollections of seeing the Bar-Kays touring after their fantastic Attitudes LP, which had "Move Your Boogie Body" and "Today Is The Day" on it but I don't remember who they toured with at the show. Might be a false memory, which is weird. I remember most of the shows I saw in high school.

    The Brothers Johnson Light Up The Night album was their best in years. I loved this ballad. I saw them along with Rufus and Slave downtown.

  49. #899
    This is the quintessential Brothers Johnson jam. One of Q's best mixes, too.
