Strictly Summer pt III

It's the third & final (for now......) installment of Strictly Summer.
The weather's still shit, but fuck it.

 Another selection of dope tracks.
This time around tracks include -

De La Soul are here with 'Sunshine', chopping up (I think) 'Blow Your Head' & giving us a nice old school style singalong chorus.

I had a fuck load of versions of 'Ain't No Sunshine' to choose from but I went with the fat Harlem Underground Band cover of this classic track. As sampled by The Beatnuts, Tribe & Ghostface amongst others.

Next up it's John Wayne & Johnny with 'Rain Fall Sun Shine', Now John Wayne is one of your boy Flair's all time favourite Jamaican DeeJays, he never actually recorded much but his tracks are absolute classics. Look out for the amazing 'Boogie Down' LP from 1983.

No summer selection could ever be complete without 'Everybody Loves The Sunshine' by Roy Ayers Ubiquity. I have no idea how many times i've heard this track over the years but it's a lot ! Listening to it now still sounds dope, it's been sampled by everybody ever & it's still THE essential summer joint.

Finally it's Yellow Sunshine with the awesome (self titled) 'Yellow Sunshine'. They only recorded one LP & split up when Dexter Wansel left the band, but what they recorded is the tits blud ! This track is crazy dope & is obviously essential listening. The break is incredible & has been fairly heavily sampled, it sounds at it's finest on 'Whirlwind Pyramid' by The D.O.C. Awesome stuff.

    C'mon, man!
    All these sunny delights....(ha! see what I did there) but I have to wait too long for them. The internet has taught me that everything is but a mouse-click away.
