Crazy Thing Called Love

I just have to tell you about this tune by Tay Walker. Titled CTCL, standing for Crazy Thing Called Love, it was out in 2017 on You Tube and SoundCloud but unavailable on Amazon, iTunes and Spotify until now. Anyway it’s now available as part of Tay’s album One Way Street To Nowhere #OWSTN , released 25th May 2018. It’s got a fantastic 90s RnB feel to it (think something like Donell Jones / Chico DeBarge style). It starts out as a tale of a young man who sees a young lady crying. Can he help? Is it that crazy thing called love? Just take a listen!

Raheem DeVaughn

The neo hippy soul rock staaarrrr!
I’ve been a huge fan of Raheem DeVaughn since his debut album The Love Experience┬áback in 2005.

I would play that album OVER and over and tell eevverybody I met about it. And seeing Raheem perform it live at the Jazz Cafe in Camden, London (2006) was a live music experience that was just out of this world! I went to hundreds of concerts in my 20s but this is one of the few that really really stays clearly in my mind, years later. I remember how he had his brother up on stage painting the scene (a painting of himself painting Raheem and the band). How Raheem and the band all dramatically collapsed on the stage in sync. How Raheem got down from the stage to dance with a lady in the front row. The various costume changes. The crowd participation….., but above all else the mind blowing vocal talent, the music, the passion and the Soul!

Some years and many quality albums and outstanding shows later Raheem DeVaughn is back again at the Jazz Cafe in Camden on 26th June 2018. So if your looking for a great show to go to this June, this has to be top of the list.
