This Diane Lewis record is a remix by Ian Levine, even though it has Mike Terry's burping bari sax and repeated samples of a typical Funk Brothers drum roll. I had the pleasure of metting Diane Lewis last year. It was so great hanging out with her and her wilder sister, the great Pat Lewis.

Avatar 4:19pm EarlyMorningInSeoul:

So this scam happened to a coworker of mine. On Facebook someone messaged his sister from what seemed like his account (The scammer basically took photos from his account to make it seem like him). The [fake] him then messaged, "Hey I'm in trouble. I got into an altercation and am being sent to jail. I need bail money to get out. Can you send $2,000 via Western Union to XYZ location. Please don't tell anyone else. I don't want to worry the rest of the family. I'll pay you back later."

But, his sister, being a little wiser, just called his cell phone. When he answered and said he was ok, they realized it was a scam. They reported to fake account to the police, but I don't know if anything came of it.

Yes-vocal demo from the past with all sorts of stuff laid on. Maybe even her new vocal laid over it also. He's done a few things like this where he reconstructs and recylces things. When I heard that drum roll, I knew it was him. He's used that little snippet quite a few times. So many Ian Levine projects are cheesy as hell but he gets it right every so often.

This track is crying out for a late-night synth-disco remix.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28pm karlward:

So I guess we'll never hear a record of Leonard Cohen doing covers of Sade--but maybe there's still hope for a record of Sade doing Leonard Cohen covers? djsheilab please make this happen.
  4:29pm Adrian in London:

Sade’s website: “there is currently no news”.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31pm Passaic River Blues:

@karlward: that is a brilliant concept that needs to be brought to fruition.

Sade cannot fail; Sade can only be failed.

@crateslinger I agree with reactions to both shows. Clay's gets me screaming out of bed in a way I am very grateful for. SBB keeps me breathing deep and my heart thumping loudly when I would be otherwise antsy. This show has been beautiful Sheila! thank you thank you thank you!

Adrian in London—I thought that might appeal to you! It's really unexpected and rather sublime.

everything is perfect. home after a tumultuous day at work. beer is poured. joint is rolled. listening to Sheila BOOM BOOM! :-D
  4:47pm IamBasil:

Hey SheilaB,this may be an odd question,or I may not ask it right,but with all of the countries and decades you cover,do you have a favorite country who's female fronted pop gets you going more than others?
it seems like a good question in my head not so much reading it now LOL
Avatar 4:48pm djsheilab:

Hey SeanG! Sounds like a lovely evening in.

@Michael 98145 No, we do not. I keep asking German Twitter friends, who are younger than me, if they’d be willing to adopt me and my wife but no luck so far…

Your show is perfect today. I think we're all feeling a bit afro blue right now.

Work kept me away from the music the last 90 mins, but will now meet the deadline. Went to hospital today, and outside of secondary symptoms, I'm in the clear for now. Now, to tackle this weekend the myriad of errands I postponed while I was sick.
  4:59pm JasonInBoston:

LOVE the visuals of "Afro Blue" by Abbey Lincoln. What a great song! New to me.

Thanks Michael, it's just my epidermis I have to worry about now, which is essentially, cosmetic (albeit annoying AF). No more immuno-blockers!

Don't worry, I find another way to injure/sicken myself that will baffle doctors again. Thanks Jocelyn. At least since I started sleeping again this week, I have energy to get a day's work done under 13 hours.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm Passaic River Blues:

@Booz: yes. It's another stellar, probing interview that allows the artist to address the intended and potential meanings of her work and other genuinely interesting points (from showtimes to process to personal faves). Sheila weaves in references that elaborate the questions--it's really a delight.

This song makes me well up w/ the first note (I heart Blonde Redhead).

Hey Sheila & all!! I just dropped in to say hi. I've been listening as I shoveled up after the first real snowfall up here in Portland, Maine. Such a great show. Congrats on meeting your hero! So damn cool! I've been listening to your shows in the archive. I'm back to Oct '17. OMG! SO Good! Sheila B & the Sophisticates make my heart go BOOM-BOOM! Such an inspiration. <3 Thank you!
