Caldwell helps Common see The Light

Today’s seven o clock sample is a DJ favorite. I’ve heard this mix at least 100 times, and if I was out at the bar, this may come across as a little out dated, but we are not in a club, it’s radio in the morning, and that makes this cool again. ( Feeble excuse for justification…)

Our track today comes from Common’s LIKE WATER FOR CHOCOLATE album…
The album’s hit single, it’s THE LIGHT.

(sorry for the lame Joss Stone version… but I couldn’t get the other version to embed )

This track was flipped by the late great J Dilla. He was diggin in the crates and found a gem by Bobby Caldwell. From the album CAT IN THE HAT… Here is your 7 o clock sample. It’s “Open Your Eyes” by Bobby Caldwell!
