By |March 2nd, 2014|1993, All, Best Ever, Pop, R & B, Rap, The 90s|1 Comment|

No one can argue about the versatility and evolution of hip hop music.  It does not matter if you are an avid fan, occasional listener or even a hater of it.  The sound and the faces of the genre are constantly changing.  Hip hop has seen its humble beginnings expand well beyond its confining […]

THE JETS: MAGIC (1987)

By |February 1st, 2014|1987, All, Best Ever, Pop, R & B, The 80s|0 Comments|

I am sentimental and nostalgic.  I had just moved recently and those two qualities never stood out more as they did when I actually started packing things up.  I found things that I have kept since childhood that have followed me from my parents’ home, my first place, my first home as a homeowner, […]

Michael Jackson: Off The Wall (1979)

By |January 13th, 2014|1979, All, Best Ever, Pop, R & B, The 70s|0 Comments|

I remember listening to the Jackson 5 in the 70’s. All the Jackson boys and little Michael were on the radio and popular television shows including the Sonny and Cher along with the Ed Sullivan show. Later came the Jackson 5 cartoon on every Saturday morning. Little Michael was belting out the tunes and […]

TLC: Fan Mail (1999)

By |November 11th, 2013|1999, All, Best Ever, Pop, R & B, The 90s|0 Comments|

TLC was a Rhythm and Blue group with three ladies. The ladies came across as a tough rap group with a beautiful soft touch. The Fan Mail tape was a tape that came with more than one hit and this was important for people in the 90s. Everyone hated purchasing a tape that you […]

Michael Jackson: Thriller (1982)

By |November 1st, 2013|1982, All, Best Ever, Pop, R & B, The 80s|5 Comments|

People either like Michael Jackson or they don’t. Maybe they don’t like him because of his past legal problems or his music was not just them. But Michael’s cassette Thriller was an absolute killer for dancing rhythms. We all have seen the original zombie video of the single Thriller and we can see today […]

PEBBLES – ALWAYS (1990)

By |June 27th, 2013|1990, All, R & B, The 90s|1 Comment|

Towards the end of the eighties, the face of R&B music was changing, and so were the faces.  Both radio and video networks (MTV, VH-1, BET and The Box), were bombarded with artists chasing the gold and platinum road to superstardom.  This was clearly evident in the urban contemporary music genre.  New Jack/ New […]

JADE: BET’S LISTENING PARTY- LIVE (1993)

By |June 24th, 2013|1993, All, R & B, The 90s|2 Comments|

The nineties are often considered by many as the last true golden age of R&B music. The genre experienced a rebirth, revitalization and a resurgence that encompassed and even eclipsed the elemental magic that made it such a refreshing presence in the seventies. After the dance driven craze that defined R&B expired in the […]

Beavis and Butthead Do America Soundtrack (1996)

By |March 4th, 2013|1996, All, R & B, Rock, Soundtracks, The 90s|4 Comments|

For a movie about two losers, Beavis and Butthead Do America sure was a hit. I found it hard to watch the TV show, and the movie was only slightly better in terms of watchability – but oh the music. Pure 90s nostalgia at its greatest.

The soundtrack was released in 1996 by Geffen records, […]

Janet Jackson: Rhythm Nation 1814 (1989)

By |February 27th, 2013|1989, All, Best Ever, Pop, R & B, The 80s|4 Comments|

Picture it: small town Indiana, 1989. There’s a twelve-year-old girl staying up way past her bedtime to sneak into the living room after her parents go to bed so she can watch MTV, hoping the “Rhythm Nation” video comes on so she can practice all her Janet Jackson dance moves.

When the video for […]

Whitney Becomes Mainstream

By |February 20th, 2013|1987, Best Ever, R & B, The 80s|3 Comments|

Beyond the tragedy of her death, Whitney Houston was an iconic singer and pop star. From the moment she stepped on stage, Whitney was able to electrify the audience. In the late 80s, I was one of the millions who was captivated by her. Whitney Houston’s album “Whitney” and the timeless classic, “I Wanna […]
