Mtume – Prime Time

Everyone knows Mtume for Juicy Fruit, the track that Notorious BIG used for the backing of Juicy. What you might not have known is that there were plenty of other great songs by the band and that James Mtume, their founder, has a list song writing credits longer than something incredibly long indeed. You should be well aware of one of them, at least

As a side note I just realised that I’ve been pronouncing the band’s name incorrectly for a long, long time. Anyway, this tune’s wicked

The Whispers – Rock Steady

The Whispers are a bunch of funky dudes singing funky songs. Not only do they wear some amazing suits but their moustache game is out of this world.

Imagination – Changes

Soulful grooves from the awesome Imagination. They’re probably best known for the mighty Just An Illusion but I prefer this one. The dub mix is also great if you’re not so into the vocals

Change – Let’s Go Together

I absolutely love Change and this one of my favs. What a tune. You need this in your life!

Collage – Young Girls

Hella cheesy 80s funk goodness. Collage’s early stuff was produced by The Whispers who had some wicked tunes. I’ll put a few of them up soon, I reckon.
