As for Queen Latifah, some of my favorites by her are "Wrath of My Madness", "The Evil that Men do, and "Princess of the Posse". I really rate her early rap sides, so I'd be curious to hear her singing. She's really come a long way since 1988.

"Hello Stranger" is a great song and I usually like every version. There is a nice version by Carrie Lucas from 1985 on Constellation/MCA and one of my favorites is the Alpha Zoe version on HIT. I included it on my midtempo swap CD.

JOT-I'd like to hear the version you and Ali are playing.

It's from the Dana Owens Album CD released last year. Mostly jazz stuff (no  rap) and it's pretty good.

Hard Times off the album is sublime,and has been packing the modern room floors,there's a house version of it too.

Cheers

My favorite version of this is a Reggae version by Frankie Zhivago Young. Pure bliss, with the best brass arrangement ever on vinyl. (in my opinion). Taken from his LP with " Somebody Stole My Love" on. :)

Going to have to do some digging - I have a US test pressing of her "Mr. Big Stuff" on Motown with an uncredited soulful vocal on the flip - was it on the issue?

Jerry.

P.S. always used to like "Mama gave birth to the soul children" meself!
