Forgotten Treasure: Blaze ‎”25 Years Later” (1990)

The album “25 Years Later” by Blaze is one of the best kept secrets on legendary Motown label. This soulful house release could be easily put next to the greatest 60’s & 70’s record from that legendary label without feeling like its out of place. In the words of my …

Forgotten Treasure: House Of Gypsies “Another Worry” feat. Al Wise (1994)

This is house music at it’s finest. Very danceable yet soulful at the same time. The emotive vocal delivery of Al Wise, the lush atmosphere and that signature Todd Terry slammin’ beat made it an instant favorite of mine when it was discreetly released late in 1994. A fun fact …
