"Ray Parker Jr. appreciation post."


  

          

I got hipped to Ray Parker Jr. and Raydio with this jam.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8In8mPfQqmM

As dope as he is, I think my favorite track that he did was this one.

He did have a tendency to rehash the same song over and over again, but he still had some jams. I look forward to his Unsung episode.
