Funk & Soul Surprise Party

Tomorrow I’ll celebrate my 29th (or so…) birthday and so it’s time for a party! ;-) The George Benson track in this 'Funk & Soul Surprise Party' is from his latest record, called ‘Songs and stories’. This (very smooth) album was produced by bass player Marcus Miller. He worked for Luther Vandross and Miles Davis in the past. ‘Family reunion’ is a Rod Termperton composition, the guy who wrote ‘Thriller’ for Michael Jackson of course. I could have chosen for ‘Nuthin’ but a party’ from the album, but ‘Family reunion’ is a better track, I think. And it's always good to have family reunions at parties! :-)

Full tracklist:

Ramsey Lewis – Tondelayo
Chanson – I Love You More
Ruby & the Party Gang – Ruby’s Surprise Party
George Benson – Family Reunion
Ronnie Jordan & Dana Bryant – The Jackal
Pleasure – Space Is The Place
Gene Harris – H.R.D. (Boogie)
Brand New Heavies – We’ve Got [A Tom Moulton Mix]
The Spinshots – Qui Est In, Qui Est Out
Edwin Starr – Stop The War Now!
Mo’Horizons – Hit The Road Jack
Thunderstorm – Funky Grandpa
Angela Bofill – Something About You
Fat Larry’s Band – Here Comes The Sun
Silver, Platinum And Gold - I Got A Thing [Dimitri From Paris Disco Re-edit]
Peter Brown – Burning Love Breakdown
Shirley Ellis – Soul Time
Earl Jackson – Soul Self Satisfaction
Jackson Five – Let’s Have A Party

Enjoy the party!
