Now this ska is my favorite dance music for sure. Too bad I was a little late to rip this CD as disc rot got to song 9 and I was not able to extract it. That's O.K. though because all the Radio K hit tunes are present such as 'We Are No Longer Fighting' and the first three tunes. From Mpls.
Not sure the year on this but it is volume 7 and I just posted volume VI last week so you can do the math. This is the only tape I won at the station where their other comp's are usually on CD and so an advantage here as some awesome good long jam tunes are included here--which I favor. Bands include: Leisure Birds, Buffalo Moon, Dark Dark Dark, Zoo Animal, Doomtree, The Cloak Ox, Gospel Gossip, The Blind Shake, Grant Cutler And The Gorgeous Lorde, Roma Di Luna, Dante And The Lobster, Wizards Are Real, Private Dancer, Pink Mink, Eyedea & Abilities, Retribution Gospel Choir and STNNNG (who I filmed years ago for my defunct Youtube Channel during Art-A-Whirl festival in NE Mpls. as they played tunes floating down the Mississippi River on a tiny boat!)
His singing voice which is used throughout this vinyl is different from his talking voice but even that sounds different from what I remember from his TV shows. But the humor is the same and quite good making this a classic album. Funny, funny drunkard singing!!
I bought the first one for a quarter as the two Luther Vandross songs on side 2 were on the playlist for 'Back in the Days of Soul" and just found the last two at a dollar sale. Hey, even Jack Grisham from T.S.O.L. who I follow on Facebook has recommended Luther to people as a quality act. And wow, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis whose recording studio was just down the street from some studios

These sound very good and are a powerful sound like when the Roots album 'Phrenology' came out in 2002 with that driving powerful sound. I like this band.
Johnny Guitar Watson - Ain't That A Bitch LP 76 w A Real Mother For Ya LP 77 w Funk Beyond The Call Of Duty LP 77 w Love Jones LP 80
Well, well, well tracked down another on the old 'Back in the Days of Soul' radio playlist I used to hear Sunday nights after moving back to my folks house in third year of college. Chilly Charles picked out the song 'A Real Mother For Ya' into regular rotation at the station KMOJ. CRANK IT!

I know you will recognize the standard movie tune 'Then He Kissed Me' as I just heard that again in some movie scene.
REPOST Request: This one for Angstytimelord and her impeccable great taste in our USA forgotten and neglected music history (she saw them live a few times..very cool!).

O.K. mid-week hot request here for Chris Mayek. Some 50's style crooning by Lisa with some really great tunes. On a related note, just found out that Helen Schneider plays Eddie's wife and bandmate in the Eddie and the Cruisers movie?
One of those dollar finds where a few songs on the Greatest Hits were scratched badly so they threw in another vinyl to cover the songs. However, three rare songs had so many scratches I left as is so anyways here are some real groovy German women.
