R.I.P. Vesta Williams
Seemed kinda like the right thing to say
considering the state of politcs lately…
“Ahm jus sayin'”
Okay, so a new set is up and running and you are probably wondering whats in it.
Here’s a clue:
I’ve added three Vesta Williams cuts to the latest set. It just started streaming earlier today. “Don’t You Blow A Good Thing” b/w Morris Day‘s instrumental version of “Fishnet” b/w Vesta’s “Once Bitten”. Later I added “Congratulations” to the end of the set.
I’ve also added in a few classic R&B and club hits cuts like Steve Arrington‘s “Nobody Can Be You’, “Tramp” by Carla Thomas and Otis Redding, Keith Sweat‘s”I Want Her”, “Bounce, Rock, Skate, Roll” by Vaughn Mason & Crew and others.
I might as well not be stingy and let you know I finally got “Never Buy Texas From A Cowboy” cleaned up and sounding great and it is in the set as well.
Never Buy Texas From A Cowboy
This is the uncut original out of print album version.
Yeah the 15 minute version…. heheheh… sounds good too! No turntable rumble or pops and clicks at all. You get to hear the song as it was intended. The solo that blew minds years ago now can blow yours. (For free no less!)
For you musicians… this is a cut you could do well to listen to. You will hear good production, arrangement and writing in this cut from end to end.
For the vocalists… If you can harmonize with others like these sisters do then YOU ARE ON POINT.
I Want This CD for Christmas!!
This is one of those cuts where even the backup singers put in work. Everything is firing on all cylinders.
What’s really important is that you get a chance to hear another awesome example of great female vocals working together. The Brides vocal work on this cut is something you just don’t hear often enough. (Too much auto-tuning going on the radio lately folks if ya asked me.) And it’s funky to boot.
Later you will hear cuts from all over including Art of Noise, Donald Byrd, Duke, Empress, Ralph Falcon, Aly-Us, Sister Sledge, Red X’s “House is the Message” (think “M.F.S.B.’s “Love Is The Message” with even bigger teeth), Louie Vega, The Muthafunkaz (still feeling “Whoa!”), Divas of Color, King Kooba and many more.
Okay enough reading .
Click the station widget on the right and get to listening!
Drop me a note after listening to the Brides. I’d like to get your responses..
