1619 Badass Band ... but surely you jest.
With a name like that they don't even have to play anything. Re-released on Japan's TSG RECORDS . . . Funny how the nomenclature of the era practically dictated the name of your funk/disco album much like the naming of a hurricane. Maybe there was a board of overseers or sumquat.
Here's a high quality MP# I've got kicking around...
1619 Badass Band-"Nothing Can Stop My Loving You "
here's a nonendorsed link to the album... ***

Here's some really beautiful music from Vangelis.... Just put my entire household to shleeps :)
Silent Portraits 1
Silent Portraits 2
here's the repost details from Artdecade
"Created exclusively for "Silent Portraits", a project involving Italian photographer Gian Paolo Barbieri, who shot on Polaroid a series of black and white photos, mostly all portraits, of the inhabitants of the nation of Seychelles. The book and photographs together make up this project, and was published by Garzanti Editore S.p.A. in 1984.
The book has a clothbound hardback cover that measures an 15.5 inches horizontally and 12 inches vertically. It is 132 pages in length, filled with images on glossy paper. The foreword is presented in both French and English.
The music was meant to be played while looking at the photos."
this is a release by Noncollective
support the artists involved plzz.
this whole thing with Common and the 'out of touch-o-crats' in this fine land has got me reminiscing about the good ole days of hip hop...
here's my favorite Common track...
And today someone played me a remix/edit of Eric B. and Rakim's Paid In Full
Dubble D & Rakim Soul Squelch (Greg Wilson's mashup) by dubble d
Something wikipedia is not aware of is that the Ofra Haza song from 1977 (a good year I might add) is the main vocal sample in the original "Paid In Full" ...
somehow that's not listed on the wiki. anyways...
here's a remix of the original Ofra haza track...
