Often, when I am deciding what to play in the ’12 O’ Clock Lunchtime Mix’, I find myself recalling some GREAT records that I haven’t had a chance to hear in a while. I’ll be posting some of these selections to TLCNAPTOWN.COM when I can. There’s so much great soul music from the past, waiting to be rediscovered.
Odyssey’s ‘Inside Out’ is a jam I HAD to bring back. You may notice a heavy similarity to Slave’s ‘Watching You’ in the intro, likely due to the fact that Slave actually produced this record. Odyssey had a big hit before ‘Inside Out’ with ‘Native New Yorker’ dominating discos and charting 5 years before this record. For my money though, ‘Inside Out’ holds up a little better. Score one for Steve Arrington and the team!
If you dig the grand grooves and wanna hear a classic we all may have forgotten about here-and-there, make sure to tune into ‘The 12 O’Clock Lunchtime Mix’ every weekday on 106.7 WTLC. I get into the mix as Tony Lamont holds down the microphone duties. We try to set off a little party for you every day to help you get through that workday a little faster.
Yup, we JAM!
