Mista Jaycee's List of CD's U Can Play All the Way Through!

Donald And Walter blew the doors off the record industry with this set! Aja to Peg to Home At Last it all one word just beautiful! Special thanks to Wayne Shorter and Chuck Jackson. Chuck slapped and fretted on the bass creating the syncopation on Peg!

This is one of the most beautiful albums every recorded. Definitely want it on with I'm driving!

Chuck D and Flavor Flav! Public Enemy! Everybody in one band Chuck preaching Black Power and Empowerment, Flav clowning so they didn't get killed, Griff dropping useful knowledge and Terminator X and the Whole Bomb Squad giving it to you raw!

Steely Dan took a long break and front man Donald Fagan decided to write the first of a trilogy of music that encompassed everything. You can play each and every cut. From IGY to Green Flower Street to Maxine. Worth the dough! Will not disappoint!

Q opened this 1969 set with Walking In Space. Valerie Simpson's voice is out worldly on the title cut. Toots Theilman is great and Rahsaan Roland Kirks Tenor and Alto solo played at the same time is amazing! Just amazing!

Billy Joel is a kick A** Piano Player with a great voice and great songs. From Laura to Allentown to my favorite Where's the Orchestra where it incorporates the melody line from Allentown. Definitely worth it! Phil Ramone produced it!

Stevie's 73 set starting with TOO High and ending in Mister Know it All! Classic!

Common Sense lost his sense due to a legal battle with a reggae band and released this set with Producer No ID. The cut with Lauren Hill's cool but the real star on the set is the intro! Still you can play it all the way through, you might be tempted to skip payback is a grandmother but hey it's not that weak!

The former Commissioned Front man Bassist/Minister could have just rested on his laurels but well he's answers to a higher power and hi quality is the standard.

Fugees front woman took a lil time off to release this major set! She roasts Juru the damaja on Lost Ones! And gets serious with That Thing, Nothing really matters, and Ex Factor. I think she wigged out after this. Well LBOOGIE, we miss you, come back soon!

Donnie Hathaway released this set after The Ghetto and before his Comeback Charleston Blue Soundtrack. From the majestic I know the Lord, to Madeline it's a great epic set!
Thanks to Aretha's suggestion he ends it with Leon Wares tribute to his Mother. Classic!

Some Voices can not be faked! Luther! Luther! Luther! Surely he can claim credit for so much baby making in the eighties. This was Luther's masterwork! Every cut fast or slow was amazing. He took a trip to Pop land right after and I never grooved to it but the 1st three other albums were just as great! Cop em!

What if Daryl had stayed a background singer? What if Daryl never heard the Lords call? For those unfamiliar with Minister Daryl Coley he has one of the most amazing voices ever. He can sing the phone book and have you praising!

What's in your changer or your IPOD?
BE Careful! BE Mindful! BE Prayerful!

MilesPerHour said...

Well, um right now my ipod had enough songs in it that I could listen to a different one for over 10 days without hearing a single one twice.

I love melodic rock, metal, r/b and hip hop the most.

Mista Jaycee said...

I need lists! Share Miles for Hour! Share! (smile) Stop hogging all the good stuff man!

Super Woman said...

I happen to like your list but im a hip hop head ...sooooo .....(yeah, you get it)

Mista Jaycee said...

I'm not a Hip Hop head per se but I am of the 1st group of Babies born under Hip Hop! My Golden age was 1985 to 1994 then well I wasn't listening as much. I produced a few rap records in the 90's and know a few people still but the music I listen to is different. I dig, Mac Dre but not over Common, Slum Village, Rakim. I listen to JayZ but Remember he was JAZ's Hypeman dig? KRS is still the top and unless you going up against them, then you can't claim to be the best.
