Forgotten Treasure: Vibe “No Blaggada” (1999)

Ok this is possibly one of the only good R&B tracks from France. Not saying the French aren’t good at that stuff, there are a few bands that were pretty dope, Les Nubians for one. But i’m not sure if I can remember one decent male R&B singer from France …

Forgotten Treasure: Johnny Guitar Watson “Gangster of Love” (Live in 1977)

Damn. Now this is that real shit. I was looking for a JGW track to share with you and I found this awesome live performance (Germany, 1977). First off, the intro is absolutely bananas. Then the rest, well… you can see why he inspired people like Hendrix and Zappa and …

Forgotten Treasure: Zapp “Computer Love”

Ultimate gangster lovin’ right here. Keeping in mind this track was released in 1984, if Roger Troutman and his talkbox only knew how much computer lovin’ was coming. Come to think of it what the hell where they talking about? The Internet was still 10 years away… and it was all …
