Forgotten Treasure: Paul Hunter “Paulʼs Pal” (1999)

OK, I donʼt have any time to do much research on this track, which leaves me having to choose between two realistic options: 1) Share it anyway in hopes it will simply be appreciated by most readers for itʼs beauty alone (while potentially sparking enough interest for the so-inclined to do their …

Forgotten Treasure: Terry Garthwaite “Terry” (1975)

My first contribution to Music Is My Sanctuary comes courtesy of Terry Garthwaite. The lady in question is really my kind of artist/musician. She is a virtuoso guitarist that used to be the go-to woman for country studio recordings in the 70’s, some sort of lady Jerry Reed if you …

Forgotten Treasure: Delicious Inc “Eau De Chantè” (1995)

Awwwwwwwww yeahhhhh, this one is undeniable! It might be the DJ in me, but almost every time I hear a great song I tend to romanticize the ideal setting in which it would be played. While house classic Eau de Chantè could probably get any dance floor going, I know …

Forgotten Treasure: Tihomir Pop Asanović ‎”Majko Zemljo” (1974)

Here is a great record from my current trip to Europe. It was introduced to me by my good friend and faithful MIMS listener Marija in Podgorica, Montenegro. She was telling me that when she told her parents a while ago that she wanted a turntable and some monitors, that …

Forgotten Treasure : Diane Tell “En pleurer ou en rire” (1977)

Producers of soulful and funky musique Québecoise during the late 70s and early 80s weren’t so numerous.

Forgotten Treasure: Gloria Gaynor “Real Good People” (1975)

If you’re like me, you may have a decent chunk of records in your collection that, for one reason or another, have yet to be discovered. When it comes to music I tend to bite off more than I can chew, but somewhere deep in my subconscious I know that …

Forgotten Treasure: Camp Lo “Uptown Saturday Night” (1997)

Ok let’s do a test. If I say “Luchini” what comes to your mind? Did the entire ‘Luchini’ video play in your mind? You know the one with the fly mamas at the dinner and the robbery with presidents face masks on. Did you just remember how much you love …

Forgotten Treasure: Spontaneous Overthrow “All About Money” (1984)

Pretty much the definition of what a forgotten treasure is right here! Very odd yet beautiful slice of synthesized experimental soul music from a group called Spontaneous Overthrow. Nathaniel Woolridge and Anthony Freeman, two friends from Newark, New Jersey decided to press this LP on their start up label called …

Forgotten Treasure: Mountain Brothers “Paperchase” (1998)

Another great example behind why we started the forgotten treasures selections. Before being introduced to this one track I had absolutely no idea about the existence of this group, yet I am a fairly knowledgable hip-hop head. But now, thanks to the homie Dj Cosmo, we have three albums from …
