The mellow mode we had going on yesterday made me want go in the direction of Jazzy/Soulful/R&B tasty treats today. But, I did throw in a Common song, because I know TNC will lose it when that comes on.

I love that Dusty song, it's got a great groove, it's not on the original release of Dusty in Memphis, but I got it off the re-issue. Tom Dowd, by the way, worked on that album. But I can't find info on whether or not he actually worked on "Goodbye". 

The rest of the songs are all favorites of mine. And as for "Rock Creek Park", well I've been thinking about DC a lot in the last few weeks so that one goes out to all my DC people.
