Every Tuesday, the Analog Kid blog goes back in time and features some of the best groovy R&B/soul songs from the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s. Sometimes you’ll hear songs from individual artists or from a specific year, and other times you’ll get an entire full-length classic LP ripped directly from the Analog Kid’s vast vinyl vault. Warning: by R&B/soul, I also mean disco. I could go all Weather Girls on your ass at any given moment, so just be ready!

 

“We were wrong, terribly wrong. We owe it to future generations to explain why.”

-Robert McNamara, writing about the management of the Vietnam War in his 1995 memoir.

“We were wrong, terribly wrong. We owe it to future generations to explain why.”

-Rick James, in a failed attempt to explain just what the hell he was thinking when he went into the studio with Eddie Murphy in 1985.

“Cocaine is a hell of a drug.”

-Dave Chappelle as Rick James, with a very concise explanation of what went horribly wrong in that studio.

    You ever listen to the Beyond Yacht Rock podcast? They did one awhile back that compared the (more or less novelty) albums by TV pairings. They felt Philip Michael Thomas’ single kicked Don Johnson’s all over the place.
