I am wrapping up the week and possibly Party Favorz with a Legacy request by a member who has supported my efforts and bailed my ass out more times than I can count.
Simply Red Legacy is the perfect synthesis of soulful R&B pop and House Music, which was indicative of the time these songs were released.
Lead singer Mike Hucknall has an amazing voice that lends itself to hits like Holding Back the Years, Money’s Too Tight Too Mention, If You Don’t Know Me By Now and on down the line. Their album Home is as relevant now as when it was originally released. If you don’t own their greatest hits, it will just melt your heart and I can’t recommend it enough!
I had to skip club favorites like the Club 69 remix of Ain’t That a Lot of Love (which for some reason was omitted from my 1999 Year in Dance) and the AFTC’s version of Sunrise in favor of their more house-friendly versions but that won’t distract from the pure bliss for diehard fans and house music lovers alike.
This entire set is dedicated to Marshall with love.
