Yeah! Nice groove with LL and MJG. Now you need "Keep Risin' to the Top" by Keni Burke to complete the set. That Mary Jane Girls LP is one of my favorite albums of all time. When I was 12 I bought a cassette of it from a guy walking down the street (probably stolen). "On the Inside" is a masterpiece. I was bummed when they replaced the girl in the polka dot dress. I loved her!

  Fri. 4/21/17 4:10pm modchick65:

Agreed, Adrian. I'm not going to buy a record just because it's a special RSD release. I bought one once and ended up selling it (not for a profit), just because I decided I didn't even want it and it was just taking up space. Never again.

@sheilaB -- re: your earlier question -- would 'baby come and get it' by The Adorables on the Peacock label qualify as a pick-up track?

@east hollywood Yes. That made me laugh out loud.
