John Legend & the Roots “Wake up everybody”

John Legend & the Roots will drop their collaborative album ‘Wake Up!’ on September 21. Its determined to be a pure cover album and will feature remakes of classic songs by artists including Marvin Gaye, Bill Withers, Donny Hathaway and many more. The first single, ‘Wake Up Everybody’ is a rendition of Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes’ 70ies classic, which also features Common and Melanie Fiona. We have had their cover of Ernie Hines classic “Our Generation” up on the site a few weeks back.

Have fun with this beautiful tune, its pure YUM YUM music in its purest essence:

FileNotFound #1 : Common “I am Music”

“Whats FNF or “FileNotFound” about? A new segment on the block/blog of older 12″, singles, tunes  & vinyls that i used to rock, play out, listen to, eat pizza on and that i still thoroughly enjoy. If a certain tune comes into mind that i do not have in digital format but on vinyl i will swim the 7 seas and search the webs for it until the file is found and share that tune with you.

And every week i am gonna bring you a new one. The first ones Common & Jill Scotts upbeat, jazzy, swing sounding tune “I am Music” from around 2003 if i recall right. Too bad the 12″ was a white label, so heres Commons “Electric Circus” album cover.

ps. A lot of ÜBER-Twelves used to be white labels so the pictures not gonna be precise and no nerding around, snapping pics of mint conditioned record sleeves, k?

Common ft John Legend “Strange Fruit”


A new Common track is upon us, prod by K West and additional bedroom vocals by John Legend, who uses an interpolation of all time favourite Terence Trent D’arby – who was originally produced and rec in munich. Check out this tune and hats off to Common who, by being true to what he is doing, manages to stay his course and thus have recognition from all crowds and scenes. One of the few hip hoppers…

I hate the term but this truly is black music – thats what the Billy Holiday painting is supposed to indicate. Enjoy
