0123 Donald Byrd – Think Twice @ 5:24

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

“You know I love you baby, you know I do…”

Blue Note, 1974, and it has an awesome record cover. You don’t even need to know how good Donald Byrd is to pick this up. This is his album for me. Great part at the very end of Think Twice that Armand Van Helden samples for Flowerz, it’s a trip the first time you hear it.

Think Twice 5:14 – 5:32

“..we just make good love together”

This cut just rides out so nicely. From a less obvious Curtis album, from the 1980’s too…

Everybody needs some soul in their life, this is it.
