Haha, I remember that song. That one and "Your Love is a 187" and "Forget I was a G" by Whitehead Brothers......some of the R & B of that era was so influenced by Gangsta Rap. Looking back, it's hilarious.





Even Melvin Riley, the seemingly effeminate lead singer with a jheri curl from Ready For the World, making a song called "Number 1 N*gga from the Hood" and rocking timbs, no shirt, and a winter hat on his album cover. LOL. These cats were trying to cash in on trends and get PAID. The movie CB4, while just so so in it's execution, was a brilliant idea.

Re: R&B Music Discussion Thread

Mom used to play her songs in a loop with other artists , bands and groups from the 70s and 80s many people have forgotten about or never heard of. Some names that even slip my mom's mind. Artists (who are on my itunes btw) like One Way, Switch, Brothers Johnson, Rose Royce, among others.



This record by Phyllis though, you see I do not think disco elements in records or some outright disco tracks are all bad. Robin Thicke uses these elements quite in bit in his last album with a bit of a modern take on it as well with the production of course. I was just in my parent's garage the other day and came across a Donna Summer vinyl record of Love To Love You from 1975! I don't think they still have a player for it, I know there are probably some out there on the market, but I thought that was pretty cool. They have some Stevie Wonder and Al Green out there too.

Edit - I bet this is the version of the record I found in the garage:



I wouldn't be surprised if my older brother who is 10 years older than me was conceived to this song or a record like it at the time lol. The bass, funky dance track, the falsetto and moans from Donna boarder on the fun groove & blissful and erotic and the sex.

Re: R&B Music Discussion Thread

Nice! Hyman's voice reminded me of Anita Baker in a lot of ways. It's a shame she couldn't control her personal demons.

Heard this song on the R&B Soul channel yesterday. I'm a fan:

Re: R&B Music Discussion Thread

Nice record. She did have a beautiful tone to her voice and as you pointed out Phyllis struggled with demons. There was a TVOne Unsung special covering her life that aired not too long ago. Maybe a year ago but if you haven't you should check it out.


Jumping back over to more contemporary side of things but still keeping a vintage 90s spirit, R. Kelly released another single from the new Black Panties album that drops November 11. The song is called Genius - http://www.latimes.com/entertainment...,3357765.story

That's a good song. R.Kelly's versatility is probably unmatched.

Re: R&B Music Discussion Thread

Yes, Kells truly is a 'genius' at creating his music and the sound and standard he has created for himself is remarkable. For whatever reason I'm hearing a couple different influences in this song. I hear some Prince "Beautiful Ones" in there with the 808 that Prince innovated, the claps, and especially the piano; but I also here a bit of the Chocolate Factory vibe too.
