Instrumentals and Demos by The Egyptian Lover During one of my recent twitter comment sessions, I noticed that Mr. Greg Broussard, aka The Egyptian Lover has released some rare demos and instrumentals from his back catalog! I’m a big Egyptian Lover fan and I immediately had to check out the releases. I’ve[…]

I’m ramping up the posting on the site and getting content ready for posting. However, I noticed there was a good many links on various pages that were broken or leading off to nowhere. Before I started posting once again, I decided it was best to fix those before. Here’s a[…]

I found this airy housy/nu-disco take on this McGilpin burner buried in my site’s draft folder. It was time to publish it. This rework takes the original track and speeds it up a tad and focuses on the “I said sexy” and “Sexy Thing” lines. There’s a wonderful drum breakdown about[…]

  When people of the United States think of dance music in the early 80’s, most tend to not look beyond what was on the charts at the time. (In fact, people in the United States are still like that. I know, it’s sad.) So if I ask someone if they’ve heard Kano,[…]

If you follow the history of Prince’s music and the artists that he’s influenced, you’ll probably tell by listening to The Time’s final release that tensions were starting to mount between Morris Day and the Purple One. The group did break up in 1984 but not before they released Ice Cream[…]

I used to… That’s what I will be saying from now on. Like I was saying on an earlier episodes of AoCH, there will be some things that I will be switching up on my site. I have reviewed a bunch of albums and singles from my personal collection over the[…]

Here’s Morris Day shining and his crew The Time doing what they do best, funk stuff up. If you’re not familiar with “Jungle Love” please go watch the classic movie “Purple Rain,” come back to the site, and read up on my Minneapolis sound posts. You will then want to add[…]

  I think I’ll continue on the Minneapolis sound trend I’ve been on lately. And go figure, this little gem was also features Prince. For those not familiar with 94 East, they were a group that was formed by Pepe Willie, who was married to Prince’s cousin. This group was also the[…]

  So buried at the bottom of that box of vinyl I was referring to, I found Mazarati’s single to “Players’ Ball.” This wasn’t a hit track off their self-titled album. However, to me, it’s a pretty good track. The opening is rather catchy and fun. Too me, it vibes on[…]
