Do Me Baby

This is a massive boner jam. It's basically like having sex with Prince... which I guess is like having sex with a woman? I have never heard those noises come from a duder.
I like when he says "I wont stop till the war is over" and "I'm so cold...just hold me"
Prince... so fragile.

Stevie D speak on dat...

So, I was listening to my Force M.D.'s LP, Touch and Go. This, of course, is the follow-up to Chillin', which featured the massive hit, Tender Love.
By the way, the fella's still sound they be, live-in-full-effect in 2010:

Anyway, I started lookin up summa' what's happenin now with Force M.D.'s, and came across this candid, engaging interview with Stevie D.
Stevie D details humble a cappella beginnings, performing on street corners and the Staten Island Ferry, to touring with New Edition (and outshining them on stage - which he says is the main reason New Edition went out and picked up Johnny Gill).
Basically, these cats started out as emcee's, eventually gaining some hard-earned street cred, to then be told by Tommy Boy Records producer Tom Silverman to don letterman sweaters and be more like Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers. It worked, as they became the originators of so-called 'doo wop hip hop,' but in the end, they didn't have enough of a hand in publishing tracks, and likely won't bother ever making another record because touring with the old hits pays more.
Anyway, it's interesting to note these guys had a lot of underground tapes circulating early on, which influenced cats from Run DMC to Wu Tang, even if their lasting legacy is a quiet storm classic written by veritable hit-maker's Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis.
TRIVIA: did you know Affectionandos-fave Freddie Jackson passed on Tender Love before it hit big for Force M.D.'s???
EXTRA: Even though it's not quite as cemented in "slow-bone jam" history as Tender Love, here's Force M.D.'s performing their only R&B #1 smash, Love Is A House:

STRANGE n' TRAGIC TRIVIA: Did u know 3 original Force M.D.s members passed away in the mid-to-late 90's?
Anyway, read this here interview with Stevie D if ya gets a chance!

so doggone good

*still searching for that classic ray charles version!

Yellow Bird

This made me cry pretty hard the first time I saw it cause I couldn't handle the cuteness. I get really happy when lots of people do things together like play music.

It's middle schoolers doing Yellow Bird. I have liked The Ventures version of it since I was a kid. It is a 19th century Haitian song composed by Michel Mauleart Monton with lyrics from a poem by Oswald Durand. It was rewritten with English lyrics in the 20th century as "Yellow Bird."

Rawest of the raw...

I was almost hesitant to post this because it's borderline exploitative of Richard Pryor's well-documented addiction issues, laying completely bare his trademark mix of vulnerability and "I don't give a fuck"-ness. Nostrels full of cola or not, there is so much brilliance on display. I never met the man, so forgive me for talking out of school, but I think we witness real raw emotion in this vid -- the actual man behind the act. There is real frustration, anger, and candor. Maybe this poor interviewer (also a school teacher) didn't deserve this onslaught/tirade/diatribe, but if there's one thing I've learned about comedy from Richard Pryor, it's that just simply tellin' it like it is can be the rawest, most effective, and funniest shit out there (even if not a single second of it can be viewed on television - I mean, when was the last time you saw a interviewee ask to play with the interviewer's dick?). Thank lordy for the interwebs!

Hey, Affectionandos...You're My Afro-disiac!!!

Another shmoove cut from Dennis Edwards,' "Don't Look Any Further":

In case some of you aren't aware of Dennis' provenance, (and you may have mixed feelings on this), but he's the cat who took over for David Ruffin in The Temptations, (the first non-original member to join the group) and ushered them through their 'psychedelic, funk, and disco' era, with hits such as 'Cloud 9' and 'Papa Was a Rollin' Stone':

Enjoy that trademark snarling gospel-hewn vocal Dennis brangs!

Interested in Dennis 'early years?'
Yes sir, long before he grabbed a mouthful of Big League Chew and teamed up with Siedah Garrett to create soul duet history, check out my man attempting to reach for that Motown sound with this 1967 rarity:

Or, how's about checking out Dennis all the way in the wee back with The Contours!!!

EXTRY! EXTRY! Where the hell is Dennis now!? This eye done spy Brotha' D in 2008, in his warm-up's, warmin' it UP, in this studio sesh with self-described soul renaissance man, Marshall Titus, who apparently is writing/producing Dennis' COMEBACK ALBUM!! (p.s. this vid is sooo up my alley...especially poignant is the moment at 4:54):

The question we all have at this point is, "who in sweet Moses hell be Marshall Titus, and would I want him 'marshaling' Dennis Edwards' comeback?!"
Look at these clips, and you be the judge...
First, Titus does his shmoove best shmexy-man-boy-rub-a-dub-in-da-tubby-tub (with cinematography like a neo-soul 'Blair Witch Project'). Oooo-weee:

But don't ax me...why don't we let the man make the pitch himself:

Before the awkwardly sculpted eyebrows, 1986 perhaps bringeth Titus his greatest career highlight, singing Bette Midler's "Wind Beneath My Wings," under the magic parasol of Ed McMahon's Star Search - the ship that launched or sunk a thousand careers...

Nonetheless, Titus and whatever other 'powers that be,' RELEASE THAT NEW DENNIS!!! I will buy!!!

Does this mean there be 2 pots o' gold???

"The Mix Eric Called The Shittiest Mix Ever Except for Two Songs" or "METH Water Slide Into Happiness"

Let me introduce my first mix for Affectionados! This is the mix Eric described as "The Shittiest Mix Ever Made Besides Two Songs". I felt it was more of a Meth water slide, that took you from great Meth heights to Crack-induced hallucinations, questioning of the self, and out the other end into a strange and peaceful mellow happiness.

I think I made it sound better than it is. To be honest, it's probably not as good as it's description at all. It's softer than that. I held back. But I had to get at least this much out. After this post I will post stuff that you guys actually want to download...

Really it's just all the classics!! It's a super HAPPY MIX!!!! x

Otis Redding

I've Been Loving You Too Long

I don't know if I am wrong for liking the William Bell version of this song a bit better but the original is amazing as well. I just really love the organ in the William Bell version.

The power of a boner jam

Solomon Burke

I remember being in a bar in San Fransisco and this song came on and I hadn't heard it in a long time. It made me put my drink down and think "god damn I wanna lick this DJ in the face right now" I had no idea what they looked like...probably a bad idea.

Andre Williams - Detroit Grease (1950's) and Silky (1998)

I had no idea Andre Williams was still alive, let alone performing and recording raunchier than ever! A true living legend, Andre Williams was way ahead of his time even in the 50's. Just getting slow and down and dirty with numbers like Jail Bait and Bacon Fat. UUH!

He went on to write songs for Stevie Wonder (Little Stevie's first record "Thank you For Loving Me"), Parliament, Funkadelic, and Ike and Tina to name the big ones.

In the 70's he became a road manager for Edwin Starr.

He disappeared in the 80's. Became addicted to drugs, went homeless. Begging on a bridge in Chicago.

But in the mid 90's he came back. Got noticed by some sleaze rock bands from Chicago and Detroit. They championed him and he's been putting out records ever since rougher rawer and raunchier that I can believe.

Below are two records:
Detroit Grease Vol. 1 -- his early hits from the 50's. This is what sold me on Andre. Jen was telling me about some song her dad used to sing to her about bacon fat. It sounded ridiculous and I didn't believe her. So she dug up a youtube of the 45 and blew my mind.
Silky -- I was looking for an image of Detroit Grease for this post and this awesome record cover came up... What is this? I asked myself. It said 1998. WHAAAAT?! yeah. it's his sleaze rock comeback and it rules. This led me to research just what the fuck is going on. Yep. Still alive, performing and puttin' out records. Just rockin' it. If he plays LA any time soon we gotta go (see the video at the bottom).

check em both out. HIGHLY RECOMENDED

Dear god. This might be the opposite of a boner jam despite the fact that it's all about the sex. It reminds me of that Lee Moses song - dark end of the street but a whole lot weirder. This is not right with Jesus.

Irma! I need your love so bad.

I don't think we've posted this yet...
