Chart positions

This upload was 5th in the #classics chart, 6th in the #lounge chillout downtempo chart and 14th in the #soul chart.

My 50th ever recorded Mixcloud compilation is a full-blown Soul Show packed with magicly revived Black Pearls, for the occasion brought together to celebrate one of the best singers and performers that ever walked the face of the earth → Luther Vandross who smoothly kicks of covering Killing Me Softly, another 5 Luther Vandross songs are redone by John Legend, Fantasia, Stevie Wonder, Beyonce, Angie Stone, Jermaine Paul and Alicia Keys.

Luther is missed, his magical voice will never stop to bewonder me, so amazing!

I also really dig the Sarah Jane Morris jazzy redo of I Want To Ta Ta Ya Baby by J.G. Watson and D’Angelo’s deepsoul remake of Feel Like Making Love. Sweet Thing by Mary J.Blige is the bomb as well as Sly & The Family Stone’s If You want Me To Stay revived superbly by Eric Benet. It all ends with the Isaac Hayes Stax remake of Motown’s Never Can Say Goodbye…..

Nou proficiat zou ik zeggen, mooie prestatie Janek. De 50ste is zeker te weten de moeite waard, heerlijke muziek maestro.

Wonderful 50th Janek. Keep on sharing! Luther's talent was incredible, what a gift to the world. By coincidence, I have just uploaded a new set and Luther opens that too. :)
