I love it when people post mp3s and introduce me to new music, so I'll kick it off:

1. N.E.R.D. - Provider (Zero 7 remix) Ok, this song is corny, but I really like Zero 7's take on it.
2. Alan Parker & Alan Hawkshaw - Hot Pants Everyone knows what these guys are capable of, this is just another great example.
3. G. Somers & A. Lewis - Black Panther I'm not up on the Conroy library LPs, but this track caught my ear. It has a very distinctive 70s soundtrack feel that I dig. (My apologies for the poor recording quality. I didn't notice I had the sound up too high.)
4. Poison Idea - Icepicks at Dawn A while back there was a thread about songs that make you feel like fighting and I wished I had an MP3 of this song to post up. I found the LP last month and it's brining me back to high school. I was 15 when I went to my first Poison Idea concert and I remember leaving with blood all down my shirt (mostly my own). It was the greatest show I'd ever been to.
5. Freddie Scott - Don't Let Me Fall This falls under the category of "songs with one small passage that sends chills down your spine," another recent thread topic. It's short but sweet, starting around 1:56 into the song.

    3. Rare Bird - Beautiful Scarlet (dynamic and moodyloopy)

    4. Led Zeppelin - No Quarter (No Quarter)

    5. Cymande - Brother's on the Slide (catchy and powerful interplay between instruments)

    1. Markus Kelly and the Impassions "Pushin to the top".....crazed funk perfection, outta my birthplace, St. Louis, MO.

    2. Secret Machines "Astral Weeks"....a band I used to be in makes music I would love to be making. A Krautrock take on Van Morrison's classic, glad to see these guys kicking ass out there...would love to see them knock bullshit like The Bravery and My Chemical Romance and a dozen other pussy shitheads off of MTV and Radio...go get em' Josh, Brandon and Ben!

    3. Quarteo Em Cy "Tem mais Samba"...awesome Bossa Nova, such a killer tune...just wish my copy didnt have a pop making scratch across half the track...ugggh.

    4. James Brown "A Blind Man Can see it"(full length version)...the orignal 7 and a half minute take of this bad-ass tune from "Black Caesar" is included as the bonus track on the "In a Jungle Groove" CD...damn, why was this tune edited down to 2 minutes on the OST? I need a copy of this full-legnth version on vinyl.

    5. King Coleman "Crazy Feeling" off a comp of new digs High-C made a while back, some gangsta-ass, Screamin Jay Hawkins-esque RnB..."Come and do the cha cha with me on the Hill..." this shit is tough as nails. (If any one has a copy of this to spare, it would make me very happy)

    1.CAPRELLS & SUL BROTHERS BAND - Close Your Eyes

    2.PINK FLOYD - Fearless

    3.DYKE & THE BLAZERS - So Sharp

    4.DON HOLLINGER - Cruel World

    5.ANIMALS - Poem By The Sea (For those of you with a stereo copy of the LP "Winds Of Change" pop this song on and pan it to the left or right. One side will just be drums,Eric's vocals,and this gong/cymbol sound that they moved the tape back and forth causing IMO "the first scratch." It is borderline creepy how newly produced it sounds.)
