*Greetings Brothas & Sistas....

Continuing from where we left off the last time, here's another stack of Summertime grooves. This time around, we'll (re)visit the sound of the late 70's thru the early 80's. Hence the subtitle, 'the Ultra Sheen edition' (check out episode #36 for more from that era). These jams & gems are made for cruisin' and/or dancin' to. Whatever you do, do it with soul...DIG?!?!

*Greetings Brothas & Sistas....

Picking up from where we left off the last time....
We continue our journey into the catalog of the legendary Isley Brothers. For this side, we re-discover some of their most sultry & sensuous sides ever known to man & woman. 'Smooth grooves', 'quiet storm classics' & 'baby makin' music' are just a few of many phrases used to describe these timeless slow jams & gems. Where were you when you heard your first Isley Brothers slow jam on the radio? Remember how it made you feel? Man, I hate to sound nostalgic, but....They don't make 'em like this anymore. Excuse me while I drift on a memory....

I don't think these Brothers need too much of an introduction. If you don't know them by now, take a listen...and ENJOY!
P.S.: Happy born-day to Mr. Ronald Isley!!!

*Greetings Brothas & Sistas....

In honor of the fact that WTDK/RevolutionRadio is officially 3 years young (!!!), I've decided to dig in the vaults here at the Soulab to present y'all with a special 'Dynamite delight'. The following master-mix was recorded during the "Dynamite Disco Show" sessions almost three years ago. Originally, "The Dynamite Disco Show" mixtape that I released back in 2011 was intended to be a double-CD. But, I made the decision to release parts 1 & 2 seperately. However, I never got around to finishing 'part 2' and began working on 'part 3' instead (that'll be released later on this year...but, we'll deal with that later). So, here it is folks...'Side 2' of "The Dynamite Disco Show" for your listening (and dancin') pleasure. Here's to more soulful sounds to come on WTDK/RevolutionRadio. And to those who have supported this station since its inception (or after the fact), I salute y'all. Thank you. Enjoy & keep diggin'....

Greetings Brothas & Sistas...

It's been a while since I presented y'all with a "Soul On Ice!" episode filled with newer tunes on it (almost two years ago to be exact). So, in the tradition of giving y'all what those wack-ass mainstream radio stations won't, I've decided to pull out some of my favorite joints that I've been diggin' on as of recent. Most of the tunes on this episode are from some of my personal favorite albums of 2013. While most of you were being bombarded with the usual, tasteless, cookie-cutter-flavor-of-the-month garbage every day of the week, here's an example of what you missed out on. Enjoy & stay tuned for more episodes like this one in the near future...
(P.S.: A special shout-out goes out to my queen for her assistance in choosing the title for this episode. Mucho amour!)

*FYI: For my super-listeners in the Atlanta area (who prefer purchasing CD's instead of downloading), you can find most of what I played on this episode at a spot called Moods Music (a.k.a.: Little 5 Soul) located on 1131 Euclid Ave. And for those who don't live near Atlanta, visit their website at www.moodsmusic.net

*Greetings Brothas & Sistas....

The time period in which the tunes on this episode were recorded & released(1981-1985) reflect a time of musical experimentation. 'Disco' was supposedly dead by this time. Electronic keyboards/synthesizers & drum machines were changing the sound of music overnight (for better or worse, depending on who you ask). R&B/Soul bands who were known for their live musicianship during the 1970's were now forced to 'get with the program' and incorporate these new-wave sounds into their music. For some, it worked. For others, it was their downfall. Only a few bands knew how to marry live instrumentation (guitars, bass, horns, etc) with drum machines & do it right (Maze & Frankie Beverly were a prime example of that, in my opinion). But, for all of the fluff that was flooding the airwaves during that time period, there was some timeless, hidden gems that rose from the ashes. And that's what you'll hear on this particular episode. Some of my personal faves, as well as some of yours. Jam the box....Enjoy!

*Greetings Brothas & Sistas...

The songs on this podcast reflect a time that’s long gone. A time when the Vietnam War was still brewing abroad…and the marches & riots were brewing right here in our own backyard. A time when Black disc jockeys such as Frankie Crocker, Georgie Woods, Herb Kent & a certain man who went on to create "Soul Train" ruled the airwaves on AM radio stations. These songs may have possibly been the soundtrack to your parents' childhood or high school days. Or probably the backdrop to many "sock-hops" & "blue-lights-in-the-basement" parties that cost no more than a dollar to get in. Songs with those everlasting melodies, vocal harmonies & lyrics that spoke to the soul. Hot horns, sweet strings sections, thumping basslines & raw drums that moved your feet. Songs that expressed joy, pain, heartache & everything else associated with L-O-V-E. Songs that revealed a certain innocence & honesty that’s pretty much missing in a lot of today’s music. Well, those days may be long gone, but the music of that time still remains. And in this day & time that we're living in, that's definitely something to be thankful for. Enjoy...

"One good thing about music, when it hits, you feel no pain." {'Trenchtown Rock' by Bob Marley & the Wailers}

*Greetings Brothas & Sistas...

In music, there's always that list of essential albums that continue to stand the test of time while introducing a new generation to a certain style of music. For instance, Miles Davis' "Kind Of Blue" or John Coltrane's "A Love Supreme" was most people's initiation into the world of Jazz music. Like most people, my first taste of Bob Marley's catalog (and Reggae music in general) as a teenager was the infamous "Legend" album, which was basically a 'greatest hits' compilation that was released in 1984. Since then, that album has become the best selling Reggae album of all-time and has sold over 25 million copies worldwide. But, in my way of doing things, I never stop exploring an artists' catalog with a 'best of' compilation. Naw, I had some more diggin' to do. The next Bob Marley LP I copped was "Rastaman Vibration"...then "Exodus" & "Catch A Fire". And the list goes on....Then I discovered some of his earlier work that was recorded before he & the Wailers signed with Island Records in 1973. Some were recorded for Coxsone Dodd's Studio One label and some were produced by the eccentric Lee 'Scratch' Perry. Upon listening, I noticed those particular recordings didn't sound as polished as his latter material. Maybe it was because of the recording technology at the time. But, I dug 'em anyway because they maintained a certain character. They were uncut RAW! I also recognized that a lot of tunes that he wrote & recorded during that time were re-recorded later on in his career. "Kaya", "Put It On", "Don't Rock My Boat" (which later became "Satisfy My Soul"), "One Love", "Sun Is Shining"...just to name a few. One can definitely hear the evolution of Bob & the Wailers' sound, and Jamaican music as a whole, from the mid 1960's to the 1970's. And by the time the bi-centennial year of 1976 rolled in, Reggae was the distinctive sound of Jamaica. And there was no question who the biggest spokesperson of that sound was. With every great recording artist, there's always a duality..the yin & the yang. And Bob is no different. He inspired us to "Get Up, Stand Up", to "Wake Up and Live". He told us that "it takes a revolution to make a solution" ("Revolution"). He warned us about that "Pimper's Paradise" & spoke to us about those backstabbers that "pretend to love you/then..try to eliminate you" ("Who The Cap Fits"). Oh yes, there's plenty of wisdom in a Bob Marley tune, my brothas & sistas. But, there's also the smooth, laid-back side. "Waiting In Vain", "Turn Your Lights Down Low", "Stir It Up"....need I say more?
And that, my friends, is why Bob Marley became Jamaica's biggest star & one of the world's greatest musical messengers of all-time. Not because he sold millions of records. No indeed. It's because Bob & the Wailers' music continues to speak to the consciousness of the people. And that's why I feel this tribute is fitting for such a legend as Mr. Marley. And it's my pleasure to present this episode to y'all as my 2nd Anniversary show! Enjoy this one...LOUD!
