B.O.P. Ft Soulystics - After the Love is Gone 2x12"

Earth Wind & Fire classic cover !
After a bunch of requests I had to post this song. I did get used to listen to it though is not one of my favorite productions from B.O.P. I felt that something was missing. I know you guys might think different but that's my personal opinion... it could have been done better. For those who likes Brother of Peace this song is a must have item to add to your collection.

Key West Ft Erik- Looks Like I'm In Love Again

Produced and arranged by Stock and Waterman back in 1993 when classic house music was hitting the dance floors!!! God!!!I do miss those days............. I had this cd maxi single with 6 versions though I can't seemed to find it. Fortunately, I had done some back up of my favorites versions out of my 90's Cds collection. The "Finger Poppin' Good 12 Inch Mix" remixed by West End is indeed the best of what u can get out of this single. Hope you all like it!

Junior Vazquez Pres. Vernessa Mitchell - Reap(what you sow) 12"x2

Finally I got the chance to rip my 2x12" when Junior Vasquez used make good music. Vernessa Mitchell has one of the most beautiful voices in the music industry. Although she had success as a Gospel/CCM artist, Mitchell has also done well as a dance diva. Her uplifting house songs have charted seven times on Billboard's Hot Dance Music/Club Play with gospel/inspirational themed dance songs unfortunately not very well publicized lately. Released back in 1995 & 1996 under a few different lables. REAP can really lift up any dance floor I do miss the time when music was done with good intentions (not just to sell)......

Lenny Fontana Ft Angee Blake - Reach for the Sky

I got a copy of this promo back in 2002 in NYC while shopping up and down on 43rd Street. Then got robbed by an ex-roomate so had to get a second copy and at this time I got the 2x12". This song was first released in 1996 under Centrestage Records then again 1997 under Free Bass Records and at last in 2001 by Records of Interest. Since the promo did not say who was the singer it took me a while to find out that was Angee Blake on vocals.
If anyone want to purchase I advise the 2x12" it comes with some great mixes... Oh ! I just post them lol !!
***Kiko Navarro's and Lenny's are the best mixes indeed!

Taana Gardner - I'm Comin' (All Mixes)

Most of Taana's Gardner songs was released under West End Records back in the late 70's. In 2001 & 2002 she teamed up with Joey Negro and released two other songs "Gotta Thing" and "Sweet Magic".
I would say that I'm Comin' is an anthem very Paradise Garage-retro- vibed and will lift every dancefloor up. She is at her best what a great voice!! Hope you all like it!

This lovely single will be split into Parts 1 & 2. I was able to get all(hard to find!!!) 11 mixes released by GTS from 1995 1996 & 2007.
Melodie Sexton is the lead vocal in most of for GTS albums she and others like Carole Sylvan, Sabrynaah Pope(RIP), Ceybil Jeffereis, Michael Watford, Rochelle Fleming, Loleatta Holloway joined this Japanese Project since 1995.
