That’s Love – Oddisee
This rap/soul crossover jam dips into Santana-centric funk while lyrically touching the soul. Get ready, we think Oddisee is about to blow up.
Mercy, Mercy – Don Covay
RIP to the great Don Covay who blessed us with this tune in 1964.
Somebody by the name of Jimi Hendrix plays lead guitar here.
Dos Cobras – Clear Plastic Masks
Slowly builds from nowhere with a cymbal crash into a keyboard driven jam of twisted funk. Turn it up!
Randy Scouse Git – The Monkees
The Monkees get criticized for not writing their own songs and playing their own instruments. The Monkees wrote this song and play their own instruments on it.
Miles – Barry Adamson
This is an ode to Miles Davis from Adamson’s album Oedipus Schmoedipus, featuring the reggae rhythm section of Sly and Robbie.
Eko – Fela Kuti
It’s Fela, no other description needed.
Amor – Julio Iglesias
From the man who invented the term “International Superstar”.
Current Carry – Vetiver
Easy like a…like a Sunday morning. Yep, that’s what this feels like.
Livin’ For Your Lover – Chris Isaak
Rockabilly from the Bay Area off his freshman album, side 1 cut 3. Dig.
Early In the Morning – Gap Band
Best listened to in the AM with a cup of coffee in your hand.
