The O’Jays released this song in 1975 on 'Survival.' The O'Jays are one of Philadelphia soul's most popular and long-lived outfits.

"The making of ‘We Will Always Love You’ was guided by Chater’s interest in a story about legendary astronomer Carl Sagan and NASA Creative Director Ann Druyan. Back in 1977, they were responsible for assembling two music and audio-filled phonograph records, containing a range of sounds and images, which demonstrated the abundance of music and culture on Earth. These discs would be boldly blasted out into the stars aboard NASA’s Voyager space probes. This expedition continues on, ever deeper into the cosmos, perhaps one day representing humanity’s eternal sonic epitaph." https://www.nme.com/reviews/the-avalanches-we-will-always-love-you-review-2834165

Have you heard of this local band? The Postal Service is a side project between electronic music artist Jimmy Tamborello and Death Cab for Cutie's vocalist Ben Gibbard. Check out this unique and special session Bed Gibbard played in the KEXP Live Room. He sat in the room along with the audience. He played only requests that he pulled from a hat. He was stumped a few times and couldn't play the songs. Enjoy! https://youtu.be/gxU3Y1ot5yY

All Good
by Samm Henshaw
(1 play) | (0 fans)

"On December 9, 2020 Samm Henshaw revealed the visuals for his brand new single “All Good.” Directed by Max Weiland, the video sees Samm unfulfilled and unsatisfied sitting behind his desk at a mundane 9-5. Wishing the hours away, Samm transports himself out through daydreams and dance routines. In collaboration with Samsung Electronics UK, “All Good” is inspired by a fans photo that Samm was challenged to write a song to. Reflected in the single artwork, “All Good” is full of Samm’s charm, positivity and wit. Rounding off this turbulent year, Samm is now at beginning of a brand new chapter both in his musical journey and personal life. Samm is now a fully independent artist and is rediscovering his love for music after feeling lost amongst the major label whirlwind. Currently, he is in the process of setting up his own record label, Samm plans to release his debut album on it next year with two songs from the album." https://galoremag.com/life-is-all-good-samm-henshaw-on-music-intention-and-spirituality/ Enjoy the video for "All Good" here: https://youtu.be/zSCU9SCUF84
