Ronnie Laws – Solid Ground

Digital Crate Digging Continues on what I refer to as Terrible / Terrific Tuesday; things can flow in either direction…

Sometimes there’s a mixture of both; I proceed and continue after drinking the elixir or broth; now you might spot me in your section!!

Told you about dude from East Saint Louis that told me to choose my poison and keep it moving so sections from Saint Louis to Louisville to Cincinnati were visited; those are my old stomping grounds..

Check the attitude from a Midwest dude down south here in Atlanta, maybe some will understand a brotha dropping this good word and bumping sounds..

Check the attitude, blessed not stressed!! chilling out with this Afternoon Jazz so I won’t spaz!! Ronnie Laws with Solid Ground plays in the background

This is from his album of the same name, check the players and the track!!  meanwhile per the math / aftermath we won’t come with the same game; we won’t back down…

Opportunities blown? we’ll move on, even though we’re trying to keep the O-Dog Day Party vibe going…

Diplomatic immunity is exercised, it’s on!! astrologers mention the New Moon Eclipse on July 2nd; soon some of us will second that emotion!!

Rolling like Smokey Robinson and The Miracles while we provide the sound and these lyricals..

Listening to Crusaders alumni Wayne Henderson with a track called I’m Staying Forever; my attitude per experiencing / witnessing signs, wonders and miracles..
