HERITAGE SINGERS – “Rain your love” (1984)

Heavenly harmonies combined with a flawless melody create the definition of “Real Music”. Performed only by the 4 female singers. Taken from their 1984 LP “From the heart” released in 1984. Although I am Greek, I have to admit that the musicality of English language is second to none. In my humble opinion, this track is one of the finest songs you’ll ever hear in your entire life.

RON PARKS – “The game” (2004)

By far the best male vocalist who has emerged the last 10 years. He possesses a sexy & warm baritone voice sounding like a cross between Brook Benton and Isaac Hayes. Enjoy this great groove lifted from his debut album “Warm, smooth and phonky” released in 2004.
