MME’s (Double) Jam Of The Day

Ah yeah!! These cuts take me back to ’95 when classic soul was fusing with highly creative/experimental R&B to create something we now term as “neosoul”. This cut was right there on the border between the two genres. With their tight harmonies & impressive vocal range, Asante was killin’ ’em back in ’95 with “Look What You’ve Done”, but this was to be their only commercial hit, unfortunately. The album it was lifted from, “In Asante Mode”, was quite good so I was surprised/disappointed when their follow up songs never gained traction, like the Curtis Mayfield remake “People Get Ready” or the Isley’s “Don’t Say Goodnight”. That’s show business, I guess.
