Bell, Biv, DeVoe, hanging out in NYC (I think it was the Bronx). I’m a shamed to say that I didn’t see the New Edition movie yet. Maybe I need to look for it on Netflix. This photo makes my laugh, because all I keep focusing on, is that big ass phone that Bell is holding in his hand. LOL.. Looking at that cellphone, you know this photo is old. LOL. I spent almost all day trying to figure out what brand it could have been. I narrowed it down to three brands; the first Motorola flip (cause we know those were huge); I thought Nokia, but maybe that’s even too big for Nokia; and the last I thought of was Audiovox. Those are the only big cellphone players that I remember making gigantic analog phones.They’ve made some cute songs, but my favorite is “Poison (1990).”

I have a treat for all the doo-wop fans out there this morning! This is a new handpicked collection of extremely rare, yet some of the most (then) popular male groups of the 50s through the 60s. This playlist includes songs such as “Goody Goody” by Frankie Lymon and The Teenagers, which hit #20 on the Billboard Charts in 1957. I also have on this playlist, “Sincerely” by The Moonglows, which hit #1 in 1954. I couldn’t resist the urge to add “I Only Have Eyes For You” by The Flamingos,  and this song peaked at #3 on the charts in 1959! Many of these songs were produced while at the peak of each music group’s career. I know you’ll like these amazing songs, just as much as I’ve enjoyed picking them for you. Listen now on Spotify and Enjoy.

A young and handsome Bobby Brown, at a 1990s American Music Awards ceremony. This was at the peak of his career. Despite what people believed about Bobby, he really didn’t need Whitney (career wise). By this time, he has already won one Grammy, and two American Music Awards. The man had talents of his own.

This was and still is one of my favorite albums from the seventies. If there’s ever a disco album you should listen to, this would be one of them!! When the original album cover came out in 1976, it was one of those fold-out albums (single vinyl tho). The lady above only had that black Salsoul t-shirt on, and absolutely no pants. The t-shirt covered most of her butt 😂 . Now, as an adult, if I saw this album for the first time, I would have easily got the wrong impression that the album had filthy lyrics, or lyrics that send the wrong message about women. Actually, the photo alone would make me look the other way, you guys know I ain’t in to that 😂 . However, let me tell you, as I said before, this turned out to be my most favorite album growing up. One of my favorites, and one of the most popular songs called “Nice ‘N’ Naasty,” actually isn’t “naasty” at all, as the name suggests. However, the beat and the lyrics allowed you to use your imagination without being “pornographic,” or gross. The song was tasteful, and nicely done. Then again, it was a different era we were in. The song peaked @ #30, and stayed on the charts for 14 weeks.

There are tons more favorites of mine from this album like “Ritzy Mambo,” and “It’s Good For The Soul.” Salsoul Orchestra was a House Band for Salsoul Records. Very much in the same way MFSB was to Philadelphia International Records. In fact, most of the original musicians from MFSB worked for Salsoul Orchestra,” so the band was pretty mixed in nationality. You could just imagine what a close-knit family they were. Although Salsoul Orchestra did mostly Latin disco, they’ve also done soul and pop music. They’ve diversely worked with many other artists you may remember, such as Jocelyn Brown, and Loleatta Holloway. Salsoul Orchestra sadly broke-up some time in 1982. Such a shame, they’ve made some awesome music during their existence.

Here’s a cute photo of a very young Whoopi Goldburg. This was at the height of her career, with movies such as “Jumping Jack Flash (1986),” and “Ghost (1990).” Along side Whoopii is R&B sensation and Grammy nominee Freddie Jackson. Some of his popular hits were “You are My Lady (1986),” and “Rock Me Tonight (1986).” Both hanging out, chillin’.

Does anyone remember a very talented reggae artist by the name of Hortense Ellis? She is the sister of legendary Alton Ellis. Interesting fact, her and her brother often toured together early in her career; they’ve also compiled an album together. One of my favorites on this album was called “Willow Tree (1977).” This was actually a very popular song, and have been song by many many artists. Hortense got her break after numerous performances on a television talent show in Jamaica. The show eventually earned her a silver cup in 1964; and was dubbed Jamaica’s best female vocalist. She continued to perform in talent competitions and won more awards and accolades.

There’s a beautiful classic American song she reinterpreted, and I think it’s absolutely beautiful how she sang it. It’s called “Down The Aisle,” Released in 1978, under Gordon Records. If you listen close, you’ll realize this is the same song song by American singer, the legendary Patti Labelle in 1967!! If you’re going to redo someone’s song, the oldies have always been the best!! Hortense enjoyed a very successful music career, until the late 1980s when her health started to decline. In 2000, she past away of some kind serious stomach infection.

Son of Jewish business man Sy Kravitz, and the very famous actress Roxie Roker (you may remember from the hit 70s TV show “The Jeffersons”); this morning’s artist is none-other than the legendary Lenny Kravitz. Damn, he was handsome back in the day! LOL. Lenny Kravitz is successful singer, songwriter, producer, and some say “actor.” And I’ve used quotes because I never thought of him as an actor, because the little films I saw him in were more like cameo appearances. Kravitz is also another one of those talented performers, where his music is almost impossible to categorize. It seems as tho he incorporates elements of every major genre & style into every song. However, tonight’s song falls in to the category of R&B. My all time favorite from Lenny is a song called “It Aint Over ‘Til It’s Over,” from the album  “Mama Said,” released in 1991 under Virgin Records. Oh my goodness! I thought this was one of the most beautiful and romantic new songs from a male performer at the time. Everything including the music was well composed. I also love the fact there was an old school element to the song’s melody. I actually searched for months thinking it was a remake, but as it turned out, it was all Kravitz. The song hit #2 on the billboards and stayed relevant for 19 weeks.

Lenny has been performing since the very late 80s. He was married to actress Lisa Bonet, and they both had daughter together named Zoe. They later divorced, and I was soo happy after that!! LOL. I know some of you may think I’m mean but…. Have you guys seen her lately? Oh my goodness!! I’m telling you guys, she looks awful!! Go here and see for yourself guys. I am almost positive she is abusing drugs; she has that “look” that many heavy “users” have. I’ve sift through too many photos to be wrong about that. Granted, I couldn’t find any proof that she is/was on it, but that’s not good when both your ex and daughter look healthier than you do. Just sayin’. I just saw an article that she’s reportedly a “vegan.” Maybe she’s not consuming enough protein, because sometimes she looks emaciated. But, I still say something is going on with her. Shucks, Lenny still looks hot for his age (53).

France Joli was one of many disco dance queens that ruled the 80s. Hands down, she was one of my favorite singers from that era and genre. Joli was born in Quebec, in 1963. She started her musical career at the age of 6, doing all kinds of commercials, talent shows, and TV appearances. Joli got her big break, when she performed a concert in New York City. To my understanding, in 1979, she was a replacement for Donna Summer that night. She sang a song called “Come To Me,” which was already released that year under Prelude Records. That concert gave her song the exposure it needed. The song became popular enough to hit the billboard music charts, and eventually peaked at #15, and stayed on the charts for about 3-4 weeks. To this day, this song remains to be one of my favorite disco songs from her. I love how it starts off really really slow, and by the time you get to the middle of the record, it’s full on disco! In 1981, Joli would release another favorite of mine called “Gonna Get Over You,” under a company called Unidisc Music Inc. The song reached #2 on the American Billboard Charts, and stayed on the charts for a whopping 17 weeks.

This little Canadian lady had a talent for disco that rivaled others. Joli, now 54 is still performing! In fact, she’s performing in Westbury New York this December. More tour dates for 2018 is TBA. She’s had many many other hits through out her career, and there’s no doubt in my mind that you’ll love her just like I did. Check out her Greatest Hits album. You’re gonna love it.
