So if you were following my blog back in the summer when I launched it I used to post a song of the day. Turns out it’s too much work to post a different random song every single day (I wish there was a way to do it automatically) plus it didn’t get many clicks anyway. So I decided to do something a little different.

This past Christmas my family bought me a Crosley suitcase record player. If you’re not familiar with what that is, it plays vinyl records (if you don’t know what that is it’s the big ass disks they had before CD’s and cassettes were a thing). This was the only thing I wanted this holiday but the real gift was the several hundreds of old records to look through. Big shouts out to my pops.

You could say that my dad’s taste in music has heavily influenced my own today, and though music is continuing to push forward, there is truly nothing better than a timeless classic.

So I introduce to you: Throwback Thursday Turtle Turntable Tunes. I know, it’s a mouthful, the name just came to me. But basically what I’m going to do is post whatever record I’m digging that week, and have it available for my readers to listen.

The first record I’m showcasing is Marvin Gaye’s I Want You. When I found this record in my dad’s collection he told me it was his favorite Marvin Gaye album. I gave it a listen and loved every bit of it start to finish. I always knew Marvin Gaye was an outstanding musician and composer but never really looked through his catalog. This record’s vibes are relaxing, groovy, and smooth as can be.

    Love the artwork too. African American artist named Ernie Barnes. The painting was called “Sugar Shack”. Check out his wiki, he was also a professional football player.
