Richard Tee:
First Love
Jesus Children Of America
Virginia Sunday

from the album Strokin' [1979]

I got this record from the same place I got this. My guess is they came from the same person's record collection. Both channel that late 70's, smooth jazz, theme-from-Taxi sound (check out Virginia Sunday for a clearer idea of what I'm talking about). Guitar solo of the year goes to Eric Gale for his work on Jesus Children, beginning at the 2:42 mark. If you love the solo at the end of FM, you'll like this. Speaking of which, anyone know who plays that solo (on FM)? Thx in advance.

This fits in well with another sport themed outing Bob James' Touchdown. I'm sure there's a baseball one out there too.

Me likey.

Mark -- ha! Good point re: Touchdown. BJ produced "Strokin'", BTW (as if that wasn't obvious). I'll keep my eyes peeled for the baseball and tennis editions in the series.
