sick hot summer jamz
nothing says summertime like some summer jams, and i've found a couple i'm pretty fond of. not only is this song getting infrequent play on fake (i.e. non-college) radio—it deserves way more—but the other week i stumbled upon an amazing remix of beck’s “where it’s at” (his second most iconic single and definitely one of his best) called “lloyd price express”. better than the original?:

beck--"lloyd price express" (mp3)
i've also be rocking the first album my minneapolis r&b legends the time. adult-themed opener “get it up” is the best song, a nine-minute burst of summertime eroticism that sounds an awful lot like prince’s “controversy”-era jams. anyone know anything about that jamie starr guy who produced, wrote and played almost every instrument on the entire album?:

the time--"get it up" (mp3)

your favorite summer jams?

and 2 years later the official line was still that jamie starr wasn't the purple one (Can he be reached by phone? "No."), though all of this 83 rs article is pretty worth reading:

'28 butts' by little jackie is working out to become a nice summer jam for me.
