Vintage Love
Saturday March 29th, 2014 with O'shea Adagio
Speechless (The Quieter Storm)

As promised last week... and something that I have thought about doing for quite some time. A show dedicated to the band, the musicians and/or the rhythm section. Featuring some of the great instrumentalists of today and yesterday. Such as Chris Ingram, Ernest Ranglin, The Supersonics, Dean Fraser, Sly & Robbie, Dwight Pinkney, Fausto Papetti, Byron Lee, Ossie Scott and many more. Turning the lights down low on this Saturday night and just letting the easy breazy vibes flow through. This is music!! I hope you enjoy the show tonight. Thank you as always for spending a couple hours with me here on CKCU. :-) O'shea Adagio Vintage Love International CKCU 93.1 FM Facebook; ckcuvintagelove Email:
An all instrumental show tonight so I thought I would reverse the usual instrumental at the top of the show and play something accapella. So this is the smooth voice of Pam Hall covering this Dolly Parton coined tune. We remember this tune also, from The Bodyguard soundtrack which became one of the best selling singles of all time... a version sung by the late Whitney Houston back in 1992.. wow so long ago already. Anyway, Pam Hall to start out the show tonight.
I Will Always Love You (Accapella) (@ 06:40)

Benjy Myaz - -
Beyond The Sea (@ 20:55)
Byron Lee And The Dragonaires - -
The sweet saxophone sounds of Chris Ingram covering Otis Redding. This slow seductive version is perfect to set the mood for a little romance. This song was written by Otis and Jerry Butler and was released back in 1965. It reached number 2 in the R&B charts.

For those of you who love Jazz, this is a cover of George Benson. This song written by Bobby Womack and here for you in a Caribbean style... continuing with instrumentals here on Vintage Love.
Breezin' (@ 44:32)
Boris Gardiner - -
One of the greatest saxophonist and producers of our time (in my opinion). This is Dean Fraser covering one of your favorite artists in Reggae music, Mr. Beresford Hammond. The ladies love this song, released in 1994 on the Elektra Label and originally titled No Disturb Sign, this is Dean Frasers version called No Disturb.
No Disturb (@ 48:33)
Dean Fraser - -
The legendary Jamaican keyboardist who was also a member of The Skatalites. Donat Roy Mittoo passed away from the terrible disease that we know all too much about now (but unfortunately not enough to cure)... cancer. Mr. Mittoo passed away late in 1990. You may recognize this rhythm from the very famous No, No, No (You Don't Love Me) by Dawn Penn.

A double spin of some Bob Marley & The Wailers. First is Dean Fraser followed by the incredicle musical duo of Sly & Robbie with their version of Jah Live.

Jah Live (@ 74:50)

From the amazing album Urban Hang Suite, this is Maxwell with The Suite Theme. A dangerously romantic, seductive tune as we continue with instrumentals through the 2nd hour of the Vintage Love show.

One of yours and one of my favorite rhythms. You might recognize this instrumental as the rhythm to Bitty McLeans Walk Away From Love and/or Kelly Makeda's Easy (Like Sunday Morning). Big tunes!! This is Just Cool a tribute to the late great Duke Reid.
Just Cool (@ 104:53)
Mark 'Saxa' Overton - -
From one of the best albums ever produced (in my humble opinion) this is Inez, from the album On Bond Street featuring The Supersonics.
Inez (@ 108: 19)
Bitty McLean & The Supersonics - -
A tune that has been recorded many many times by verious artists in different genres. Recorded by Tom Jones, Stevie Wonder, Neil Diamond, Julio Iglesias, Louis Armstrong and many more. Written by Fred Neil in 1966... Reggae fans might remember John Holts version a classic remake covered here by the guitar stylings of Ernest Ranglin.
Everybody's Talkin' (@ 112:09)
Ernest Ranglin - -
I am sure you all know this most famous song from the many recordings of the late great Gregory Isaacs. This is Night Nurse most recently covered by Romain Virgo and this is the accompanying version by Dean Fraser from the tribute album, We Remember... and we certainly do. Nuff respect to Gregory Isaacs for all these fantastic songs he left us. The Cool Ruler covered here on VL.
Night Nurse (@ 114:41)
Dean Fraser - -
Ending off this treat of instrumentals is an uptempo cover of the Jackson Five. A tune I think you will all be able to sing along with as Jazz Jamaica covers this 1969 song with a young Michael on lead vocals. This is I Want You Back ending off Vintage Love tonight.
I Want You Back (@ 119:05)

Slow Jams instrumentals
Great show O'Shea! I was hoping you would have a section with instrumentals covering Slow Jams and well known love songs..but next time!!

12:05 AM, March 30th, 2014
O'Shea, when you are editing the playlist, can you include the original artist for the covers you played. Eg. "No Disturb" (Cover of Beres), "Night Nurse (Cover of Gregory Isaacs). etc. If you have the time.

12:18 AM, March 30th, 2014
Version Excursion!!
Just listened to the show over again On Demand. Great Learning musical excursion. Loved tunes such as 'Djamballa' - listened to that tune three or four times over and over. Loved "Breezin", "No Disturb", "Loving you", "Maxwell", "A Mighty Fortress". All great instrumental tunes. It's good to have a show such as this, so whenever folks are in the mood to hear classical instrumental tunes, they can listen to "Speechless" on Demand. Great vision/insight O'Shea!!

2:05 AM, March 30th, 2014
Timeless tune
'Djamballa' is such a timeless tune. I'm trying to think what made it so well-known, if it was the theme song for a movie or what? Anyway, I remembered hearing this tune every sunday morning on the radio 'back in the days', in the Caribbean.

2:09 AM, March 30th, 2014
Next Detour show O'Shea, can you include 20 mins of instrumental love songs such as the one you played by Maxwell, also if you have Kenny G,...and the instrumentals for popular songs such as 'My endless love', etc. etc. Thx!!:-)

Hi Slow Jams, I wanted to have a mix of all sorts of instrumentals so I did play a few covers but your comments are noted for next time. Thank you for your feedback.. much appreciated.

1:36 PM, March 31st, 2014
Amazing U
Wow...thanks for the background information you gave on the instrumentals you played on the VL show, saturday night. (very well put together). Merci Monsieur!

11:57 PM, March 31st, 2014
Wow Mr. O'Shea! So what award were you being presented with in the pic above?? (You excell in all you do!:-)

5:27 AM, April 1st, 2014
Jah live
Love the Sly and Robbie version of "Jah Live". It's been playing in my mind since Sunday. Now I'm longing to hear the original version. Can you add the orig. version to your playlist for this Saturday. Thx

O'shea Adagio (host)
Hey, thanks for checkin out the VL instrumental show. I wasnt sure how it would come across.. wasnt sure if people would like it but at least a few of you enjoyed it and that is good to know.

O'shea Adagio (host)
That award... which really did leave me speechless... was from Chale Entertainment who presented that to me in February this year. I was truly surprised... and thankful. Ya.. something I will always remember.

I would have to say that.. out of all of these songs... the one that keeps playing in my head is Djamballa. That song by Fausto Papetti... is just sweet. Such a moving peace of music.

12:56 PM, April 1st, 2014
Speechless.....come on. You are never speechless! Not the O'Shea I know!!:-). Surprised...yes. But speechless...?? (You do deserve every award you are an ardent worker!).

7:03 AM, April 2nd, 2014
VL Fan
O'Shea, do you by chance have the song "Jah, Jah give us life to live, so let us live. So feel no way, when I man say...". I think its by the "Wailing Souls". If you do have it, can you add to your playlist. Thx. (You do look hot in that suit above!)

6:24 AM, April 3rd, 2014
O'shea Adagio (host)
Speechless??? Yes. There comes a time in everyones life where words escape you. This was one of those times.. it was a complete surprise and shock to me. A fantastic surprise but a surprise nonetheless. :-)

11:45 AM, April 3rd, 2014
...I'm sure you recovered quickly from your 'speechlessness' and said something!!:-). Because you are very witty and smart!

7:05 AM, April 4th, 2014
O'shea Adagio (host)
Well I wouldnt say I am that quick and witty... I guess sometimes I can be but I am more like George in "The Comeback" episode of Jerry. "The Jerk Store called..." Hilarious!!! :-)

12:55 PM, April 4th, 2014
