It’s back to basics R&B. A test of memory with songs that never quite reached the top of the charts. If you’re old enough to remember hearing any of these on the radio- maybe evening waiting by the tape deck to hit record during the Quiet Storm hour- then you’ll remember how good it is to listen to great slow-jams. The Sunday Slowdown is in full effect.
