    ^^^^^^^^Is that the clip about the monotone dude talking academic about the song, making it seem like one of the least funky things imaginable? That shit was terrible.

  • mordecaimordecai 2,204 Posts
    you should have called this essential bob james songs maybe since none of the albums i've heard from him i'd consider essential full-lengths...Two and One come closer than the rest, but still not one I find myself putting on continuously...
    u dont have to waste your time then..
    that is why i come here.



    Nautilus


    essential for Mardi Gras & Farandole


    i like Storm King




    not essential,
    but i listened to it tonight and still don't feel the need to get rid of...(yet)



    includes Angela (play at 45 for Souls of Mischief-Cabfare Instrumental) and Carribean Nights (sampled on Redman - I Can't Wait)



    Most wouldn't consider this essential either, but I keep it for Shamboozie (sampled for Rakim - Guess Who's Back)



    I don't consider this essential


    I don't consider this essential



    any later albums or songs I'm sleeping on?
    i know lucky seven has look-alike, cool has the sponge, and one on one has love lips
