Slow Jams Special Volume 2: Hidden Treasures

HIDDEN TREASURES

Hidden treasures, rare grooves, forgotten favorites, special gems…these are the songs you never hear on the radio.  These were singles released to radio, but because they didn’t develop into major “hits,” were soon after retired from airplay, never to be exposed again.  Until now.

Some of the best songs “have a place in our hearts, not necessarily on the charts.”  That quote from Kevin “Slow Jammin'” James sums it up the best.

Enjoy digging up some of the best Hidden Treasures with us on this chapter of our podcast-only version of Slow Jams.

Win the New Album from Babyface: Return of the Tender Lover

BABYFACE

Win a Copy of Babyface – Return of the Tender Lover!


.

Babyface announces December 4th as the release date of Return of The Tender Lover, the eagerly anticipated new album from 11-time Grammy Award®-winning, multi-platinum icon on Def Jam Recordings.

“We’ve Got Love,” the new album’s first single, a global message of love and connectedness, is closing in at Top 10 on Urban AC radio, following its debut on the Steve Harvey Morning Show. Babyface is also set to appear on ABC’s Good Mooring America (12/8) and The View (12/9).

In advance of Return of the Tender Lover, Babyface will be the featured guest on Harvey’s show on December 7th. Babyface will also guest on Tom Joyner’s nationally syndicated radio show on December 10th. Babyface just returned from a tour in South Africa and is currently touring through the end of December in the U.S. with more dates to be announced for 2016 in support of his new album.

Return of the Tender Lover is the 10th studio album by the poignant tune-smith, prolific hit maker/ producer, superstar recording artist, and revolutionary label owner Babyface. Filled with eight beautiful new original tracks of unapologetic R&B, Babyface plays on every track on the album including, although not limited to, his amazing and widely-praised guitar work with the intent to bring feel-good grooves back to music.

Babyface’s 10th studio album title commemorates and pays homage to Babyface’s breakthrough album of 1989, the RIAA triple-platinum Tender Lover. His second studio LP, it spun off a quartet of career-defining solo R&B/pop cross¬over hits, “It’s No Crime” (#1), “Tender Love” (#1), “Whip Appeal” (#2), and “My Kinda Girl” (#3).

One the most prolific and successful producers in pop music history. A sample of the artists he has produced and written (or co-written) hits for would include Barbra Streisand, Whitney Houston, Beyoncé, Ariana Grande, Mariah Carey, Madonna, Eric Clapton, Colbie Caillat, Jennifer Hudson, Michael Jackson, Toni Braxton, Aretha Franklin and Celine Dion.

Slow Jams Special Volume 1: This is the REMIX!

REMIX

Over the years, I’ve collected thousands of Slow Jams CDs.  From the various radio stations I’ve worked at, to scouring record stores across America–I’ve built up a pretty impressive collection of Slow Jams and they mean more to me than just about any other possession.  One of my most prized parts of this catalog are some of the fantastic and super rare remixes I’ve been able to find over the years.  Some came easy.  Others I’d only been able to get a hold of after years of tedious searching.

STUDIO CROPUntil today I’ve been very “protective” of these rare gems.  Maybe it’s because I didn’t want many other people to “own” these masterpieces too; maybe because I wanted to be the only DJ who featured these remixes on his show.  Whatever the reason, I realized that I was being selfish–and why not share these amazing tracks with my listeners: the people that love Slow Jams just like I do.

So here they are!  A collection of some of the best remixes ever made.  Some you may have heard on my show, others I have never broadcast on the radio.  Some are almost as good as the original.  Others you may agree are even better than the album version.  Either way, hit play, sit back, relax and enjoy a musical journey featuring the best (and rarest) Slow Jams remixes ever made.

This…is the REMIX!
