Baby Driver… in theaters June 28th
I was blessed with Baby Driver screening passes in the beginning of June. For once I am not going to discuss the movie… I am fascinated by the soundtrack. I have never experienced a movie the made me want to see it again just to listen to the music in it. There were at least 30 songs in this movie and all of them epic. This movie had me musically captivated from the opening scene when Baby played Bellbottoms by Jon Spencer Blues Explosion on his iPod. I was orgasmically intrigued when the Incredible Bongo Band Bongo Rock album was part of product placement. This movie was setting up a name-that-tune/found-the-record nostalgic overload in my brain. As I sat in the dark theater attempting to write down every song I heard clearly know it was an impossible task yet that never deterred me. Baby Driver is a brilliant movie, action packed, and full of redemption yet the music.. My goodness the music!!!
Memorable Music: Deborah by T Rex, Easy by The Commodores, Neat Neat Neat by The Damned, Brighton Rock by Queen, etc.
Did you prefer the movie, the soundtrack, or both? Let us know in the comments.
Vinyl on Spin: 🎼 In Loving Memory circa 1969
In Loving Memory
I dove into my father’s crates last night and pulled out a gem… In Loving Memory by Motown Records.
This album is a tribute to Mrs. Loucye G. Wakefield, Motown vice-president and sister of Berry Gordy. This album is the ultimate compilation of Motown’s top artists and a choir singing inspirational gospel songs. Every song exudes so much love from Harvey Fuqua “What Do You Choose” to Stevie Wonder “Swing Low Sweet Chariot”…. One of my favorite gospel choirs Voices of Tabernacle performs on this album.
This quote from the liner notes sums it up…
“This tribute to Loucye comes with the sincere hope that this album will find its way to a permanent pave among treasured collector’s albums… that it will serve as a laying memorial to Mrs. Wakefield” – Mr. Al Dunmore/Mrs. Regina O’Neal

Vinyl on Spin: 🎼 Larry Young’s Fuel circa 1975
I only had nine years with my father yet those years created an insatiable love for music within me. We listened to a lot of jazz & funk.
Larry Young’s Fuel
Fuel is a combination of both jazz and funk which heavily utilizes a synthesizer and percussion. My favorite song is H + J = B (Hustle + Jam = Bread).
I am not sure how my father got his hands on this promotional copy yet I’m happy he did!
