I think 1989-1990 may well be "oldie" by their standards.

In which case, why not request some Expose on my behalf while you're at it?

He does tend to stick to older stuff, which can be as recent as mid-'90s. You're missing "Juicy Fruit"!

That was the first time I've ever heard Mtume's "Juicy Fruit."  Color me severely disappointed: I was expecting something amazing after all the criticla accolades; instead, it struck me as just more tedious '80s synth-soul (you'll note that I have no appreciation for Frankie Beverley and Maze on similar grounds).

at the time ('83?) it seemed fresh. you've heard too many of its clones since then, probably.

so, is there an A-tume, a B-tume, and so on?

Stargard! "Which Way is Up?" -- damn, haven't heard this since it was a hit. Rose Royce got too big for their britches, so Mr Whitfield went out and put together another group for his next soundtrack.

A group now perhaps best known for their turn as Lucy & the Diamonds in Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band ...
