"Okkaaayyyyy.....I'm Reloooaaad-deeeed!!!"

Preface - I'm looking for some help. I want Fiona Apple's album "When The Pawn...". If you can help me out, get at me via email. Thanks in advance.

This week is gonna be a good week for all of you. A few discography's to put up, some rare album and unreleased single recordings....the collection is chockful of that shit you want so make it a part of your daily routine this week to check in, grab some shit and throw up some comments. I usually try to point out one album daily as the recommended download. But I gotta say all of these come highly recommended so it's hard to single out one.

Oh yeah...Pacino as Carlito Brigante has to be one of the best cinematic characters of all time. The look, the way he seemed to really delve into and bring out the character's personality and the way his character evolves over the course of the story...tremendous.

So I was browsing around and found this joint. I recognized it for some reason, so I grabbed it and I must say I was impressed.

Recently, Regnyouth has been lacing my collection with some timeless Miles Davis, in particular recordings with his quintet. Be sure to browse there for the full write-ups on these joints. For my personal tastes, I love them because they feature Miles and Trane, along with the drums of Philly Joe Jones, Red Garland and Paul Chambers. Reading and knowing so much about these five and then hearing it is proof positive that this is quite possibly one of Miles' strongest musical periods.

Right now, I'm all about acoustical albums. When I hear'em, they move me. The purity and the energy involved is raw and amazing. No exceptions here.

Where D'Angelo is right now? Lord knows. Word is he's in the studio again so we'll see what he comes out with. This is D and the Soultronics doing rehearsals before their concert at the Essence Festival. The tracks were recorded in a studio. With a twelve minute version of "Lady" and a ten minute version of "Brown Sugar", all I know is this collection is worth the few minutes of your time because those two tracks online have been gettin maximum replay the past few days.

For the old school effect...there was not a young chick walking for who this man wasn't a hearthrob lol. Fortunately for the young fellas, we learned over time that he made some good "panty-droppin" music which helped us to tolerate him. There was nothing like being under the covers, talkin on the phone way later than you were supposed to and having this album playin on the low.
