A Morpheus Soul Pod-Cast {Cameo Special}

"Do Your Dance"

I've been f0nKing out all week to the sounds of the original New York City Players and East Coast Knights Of The Sound Table aka Larry Blackmon, Tomi Jenkins, Anthony Lockett, Aaron Mills, Charlie Singleton et al. Collectively known as the brilliant "Cameo".

One of my favourite groups growing up in the 80's, the forever changing line up has been keeping music lovers on their toes, releasing seventeen albums over four decades, and they ain't done yet soul people. Still touring the states and I'm very happy to say, live in London Town this month BABY! {Oct 22nd/23rd/24th/25th/26th} at the legendary Jazz Cafe. I remember purchasing my first Cameo 7" single "Back & Forth" from Woolworths with my pocket money and rinsing it to death on my aunts turntable. I later picked up the Word Up! album on cassette and shortly afterwards was diagnosed with funkinmebones syndrome.The Rest is History!!!

On this special tribute I go through a small selection of Cameo's back catalogue featuring music from 1977 to 1996 including "Back And Forth" and a host of classic funk soul jams. Also, In true Morpheus Soul fashion, I had to switch it up slightly and feature a beautiful version of the classic "Word Up" performed by Willis, plus; a special segment named "Sampling Larry" with three supa dope hip-hop joints produced by DJ Premier, 9th Wonder & Khrysis all sampling CAMEO records. The cherry on the cake is a DJ Cam song from 2002 remixed by J Dilla R.I.P, and featuring Larry Blackmon on vocals. It's time to raise the anchor once again and set sail on this special midweek excursion aboard the good-ship Morpheus. ENJOY!
