First to Kalamu’s Otis Redding remark, Otis isn’t a one hit wonder. How about “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long”, “Tramp”, “Mr Pitiful”, “Try a Little Tenderness” and “Hard to Handle”. Granted they didn’t chart, but then again most GOOD music never does. Not only was “Sitting On the Dock of the Bay” posthumusly released, it was recorded three days before his death.

Now about Ms. “T”…Mtume, why you gotta keep us waiting another week. Is this a publicity stunt, LOL! These tracks are good. But, I expect to see “Portugeuse Love” next week. And if you venture outside of the Ballads, “Square Biz” is a good one also.

As Miss Teena is one of my all-time faves as well, I will now cast my vote for “You Make Love Like Springtime” in next week’s lineup. You can’t talk about Teena the soul diva without giving significant love to her jazzier roots as well. And it is fitting to note that Smokey not only wrote songs for her, but clearly had a PROFOUND influence on her vocally as well.

Thank you for shining light on one of music’s brilliant jewels.

Lady Tee’s reading on DE JA VU (I’ve Been Here Before) is sheer brilliance…………

I thought we were all colorblind now? Why all the discussion of the woman’s ancestry? I guess community pride will always be divided along color lines.

somebody just like you is by far my favorite Teena Marie song. It’s old school and new school Teena all in one song!

Excuse me?!!! Did this article imply that African American women are fat and out of shape?!!! I happen to be a professional Black woman who jogs, rollerblades, ices skates, works out at the gym and I am a knock out in a bikini. I just tried to copy and paste my photo to prove it.
How dare you classify a whole entire race of people into one box. I am going to report this article on grounds of sexism and racisim.

Teena, I’ve loved your music, ever since I was a little girl. Your music, has inspired and been one of the most important things to me, throughout my entire life. You came along and hipped everyone to ‘The T’. Rest In Peace, Lady T. We love you.
