      Just Sharing some Grown Folks music


      0 Not allowed! Not allowed!
      Just want to share some good music.....
      This is mostly jazz and smoove R&B music
      No exploitative lyrics. Just trying to drop
      some uplifting stuff from artists we all know
      but don't seem to get any airplay anywhere

      Anyone can download these, but they're
      primarily for high speed connections:

      All files are in RAR format. You will need a program
      like WINRAR or WINZIP to unpack the RAR file
      You can get Winrar at this website:
      www.rarlabs.com

      It's a trial version but it never runs out
      Just open and program and hit cancel in the window


      All you have to do is double-click the file and it
      will unpack the music files to whatever folder
      you designate them to go to


      All this music is ripped from CDs I OWN
      (do ya hear that RIAA?? :? )
      (VBR stands for Variable Bit Rates)
      (Lame = MP3 format)

      Good music from our ADULT artists....The new underground
      Since they're putting out records, but getting little or no airplay
      ANYWHERE in the media. So I thought I put it out there myself

      If you're feeling these, I have plenty more to share

      Hope I am not overstepping bounds by posting music to download
      Just want to share good stuff. Try to overcome all that crap that
      is prevalent out there today. Only way to do that is by pushing the
      stuff we feel should get more play. Feel me??


      Anyway, here's a few more.

      Wow! I am 36 and damned impressed by the so called ole'school artists that you all have posted! Impressive, let's call these artists the "c'old school" to give them respect. I am a huge Stevie Wonder and Al Jarreu fan. P.S. my mother claims she went to school with Chaka Khan, of course she insists she dated one of the Chi-Lites as well. Perhaps this is where I get my storytelling skills?

      I'm just trying to bring em to life brotha....If you watch
      the media nowadays, you'd swear the only black people
      making these days music were 50 Cent, Beyonce and R Kelly


      These "c'old" school (I like that) artists are STILL making
      music. And have been doing so for many years. Some for DECADES
      and the mainstream ignores em like they don't matter

      many people use the term "irreverant" when describing artisr
      they don't see on MTV, BET or network TV

      Hmmm..."grown folks" music, eh?

      I assume that you mean "grown" as it pertains to maturity and not age, correct?

      In any case, I appreciate you uploading this great music.

      As for your concerns with so-called mainstream media airplay, why should one ONLY look towards them to find so-called "good music"? Have we forgotten about the many independent and college radio stations around the globe?

      I listen to T.I. and I listen to Herbie Hancock because it's good music to me, which is completely subjective.

      Once again, thanks for the tunes.

      Hmm...I never thought that using google would be considered "searching far and wide". There are thousands of stations out there playing good music, but people are so stuck on listening and complaining about the so-called "mainstream" radio that they miss out.

      Let me ask you a question: do you request listening to these artists at your local soul or jazz stations?

      If you do and they don't play the artists, then why not go to a different station? I see nothing wrong with listening to an independent radio station like Pacifica or checking out your local college radio stations. Heck, you can even listen to the radio online, so that's why I'm not understanding when you say "search far and wide". There are too many options out there not to have at least ONE fall in your lap.

      Thanks again for the uploads; some good music right here.
