      Dude, you have to adopt me so I can inherit your music collection. This music makes me cry of pure happiness. Please keep up the good work, I was born in the 80s and obviously missed out on the golden era of music.

      Peace and love :)

      Believe it or not, they created a lot of their funkier tunes without ANY USE OF SAMPLES. There are a few of course but they are few and far between.

      Hi! Really enjoyed this. The video was as good as anything on MTV -- and have you got talent! Anyway, you've inspired me to download yet more music. And you've reminded me of a lot of stuff I didn't think to list in my own profile (under favourite music). I have a lean for female vocalists, so this was particularly enjoyable for me personally. I'll be looking out for Ruby Andrews -- never heard of her before ... oh, I could go on, but that's enough from me ... All the best, Camlo
