If there's a tradition that occurs each week about this time--my time, 6:00PM EST or so--it's when I check in over at Davy's place. He's invariably posted some smooth seventies soul track and being five hours ahead over there in London, he's been given a head start on his evening when mine has barley begun.
I had asked Mr. H to DJ this Friday's Parting round, but alas with the holidays and other commitments Davy wasn't able to address 'em this week but I hope we can prod him enough to guest here when time permits.
That said, Mr. H I hope I've done ya' proud - a tip o' the hat in 10:
The Floaters - Float On (Mp3)
Barry White - It's Ecstasy When You Lay Down Next To Me (Mp3)
The Emotions - Best Of My Love (Mp3)
The Commodores - Brick House (Mp3)
Earth Wind & Fire - Serpentine Fire (Mp3)
Marvin Gaye - Got To Give It Up (Mp3)
The Brothers Johnson - Strawberry Letter 23 (Mp3)
Heatwave - Boogie Nights (Mp3)
L.T.D. - (Everytime I Turn Around) Back In Love Again (Mp3)
The Sylvers - High School Dance (Mp3)
(And yes, I'm aware that "Strawberry Letter 23" is on The Brothers Johnson's "Right On Time" LP--I just dig this cover. Don't you?)
