Ok, where do I run it this week? New things & some “classics”, who would of thought the opening track is a cut from 1964, hairs are firmly on end with this one from Solomon Ilori. Heavy Mannas is searchin’ for the tunes of ’07 – this is an opening of sorts whilst I work thru the best of the Jan & Feb. Lookin’ forward to the comin’ months and especially Lanu’s LP for Tru Thoughts (out in March). So far then, it appears to be on course for a fantastic year. Mos Def steps up, who will follow…. I hope you enjoy the show anyhows. ;-)
