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.
