Last Poets-The Mean Machine

Later sampled by MARRS for "Pump Up The Volume", this track from the Last Poets was so ahead of its time when released in 1970...

Guilty Pleasures

Bangs and full length leather coats are so last year.....The "Guilty Pleasures" series continues with this little gem from 1983. Stewart dons the cover wearing nothing but his Sunday worst and the plot thickens from there. The sad thing is, I would likely play this again if the right opportunity presented itself.

It's been a minute since I have posted any reggae jams on the blog. Here's a nice 45" jam from Luciano, one of reggae's strongest voices today.

Fred Fowler-Times Are Changin'(Extended Mix)

Guilty Pleasures

Some songs, no matter how terrible, refuse to leave my cousciousness. I am sure most of you have the same dilemna. A collection of horrible tracks that for some reason or another hold a special place in your musical past. Perhaps it was a song you did an airband to as a young, pimpled teenager. Maybe it was a bad 80's love ballad resonating in the background as you dove in for your first kiss in the back of your rusted Chevette. Some people call them "nostalgic tunes", personally I call them "rubbish". Nevertheless, I thought it would be entertaining to make a new weekly post called "Guilty Pleasures", an opportunity to post some of my favourites from the past that I wouldn't be caught dead playing today. I am starting off with this dance track by Daisy Dee called "Crazy". I had a fleeting love for Euro dance and freestyle music in the early 90's and for some reason this song stuck out as a great track. I was digging through some old vinyl this weekend and stumbled across this forgotten slab of wax. After a quick trip down memory lane something came over me - this song sucks! I can appreciate how it made me move almost 20 years ago, but I wouldn't dare play it now(nor would I want to). I must say the resulting laughter made the endeavor worthwhile nevertheless and I can't deny my musical past, as checkered as it may be. I am definitely looking forward to hitting you up with more "Guilty Pleasures" in the future. Feel free to leave comments/suggestions.

Paco Supermix(KTU New York)

Here is a classic mix segment by the legendary Paco. Paco, along with the Latin Rascals, was a fixture on New York City radio during the early/mid 80's on 92KTU - a station that pushed the boundaries of dance and freestyle sounds during this innovative era. These unique mixes and quick edits brought a fresh new sound to radio listeners and are still regarded today as some of the best edit mixes committed to tape.
