In the 15 years since that introduction, I stumbled on Olu Dara (Your Lips, Your Lips, Your Lips, Your Lips They are Juicy!) with his release In the World: From Natchez to New York.
I am up late tonight working on a massive , complicated model to show how our business should play out, when on the TV here is Nas, with this guy – and I know that guy – that’s Olu Dara.
Nas keeps going on about his dad, and slow as I am, by the end of the song I figure out that Nas’ Dad is Olu Dara!
They both kick buns, so check them out.
By the way – I bought my first track from Amazon’s MP3 service. They don’t yet have a huge selection, but I come from the days of vinyl and tapes, so I still operate in the gold / copy mode: I leave the gold copy at home, and take the copy on the road. The copy wears out ( I lose my mp3 player) and I still have the gold at home, safe. I still have a veritable vault of CD’s as well, but they collect dust now.
All that’s to say I want to have an unfettered mp3, at high quality, that I can copy to my mp3 player without fingling with every genius-scheme DRM encumbrance. That’s for the Man. I buy from Amazon.
