Don’t know if you knew, but it was the ever-lovely SADE’S birthday last week. Say it quietly, she was 65 on the 16th January – so bus pass and OAP beckons!

Now we don’t know if it was meant to be a birthday tribute but just last week Detroit producer TALL BLACK GUY issued a rather special Sade mix. He took Ms. Adu’s 1992 track I Couldn’t Love You More’ and skillfully blended it with DONNY HATHAWAY’S 1972 opus ‘Love, Love, Love’. He calls the “new tune” ‘I Love, Luv You More’ and it has a hypnotic, ethereal feel – quite special. Mind you, you’d expect that from a mixing of two splendid tunes from two giants of our genre.

We believe that this intriguing cut is good to go now via Bandcamp. Thanks to Mark Turner at the newly, reinvigorated https://soulstrutter.blogspot.com/ for sourcing this one  for us. Recommended – the tune and the blogspot!
