Okay where have I been?

I heard of the Shirelles. The other group Love Unlimited I have not heard of.

The Love Unlimited song I never heard. The one by the Shireeles I heard but I really don't know it.

Happy OSF.

Love Unlimited? Oh yeah I've definitely heard of them. Definitely takes me back in the Way Back machine, that's for sure. That song back in the day was a baby-makin classic.

Vivrant Thang 12 September, 2008 10:23

I enjoyed the first choice though I am more familiar with the second. Check out the Soul Train video footage. Nice!

iriegal 13 September, 2008 02:03

You on the road and still got it going on. I was working today and didn't get to put up mine until late, but check it out when you have time.


PopArtDiva 13 September, 2008 07:51

Regina - I love the Danayja photos - what a cutie!

The Love Unlimited Video from Soul Train was great - I used to watch Soul Train religiously.

Of course, now I want to know which of your children was a result of the Hey Love cassettes, lol.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and my OSF post, I hope you enjoyed the videos of my favorite 60s Girl Groups!

Nice pull of the Love Unlimited clip. In answer to your question, I knew that they were Barry White's backup singers. He was even married to the one in the center (Glodean White) from 1974-1988.

Your story about one of your kids being conceived to the Hey Love cassettes made me laugh. I just know that there are a lot of other "Hey Love" kids out there.

Happy OSF!

cooper 13 September, 2008 23:01

The Love Unlimited song I've never heard, that was great.

SjP 14 September, 2008 08:35

Love Unlimited were the bomb back in the day and so were the Shirelles! Yes, Barry White was married to one of the LU singers at one time, but I think tey divorced years prior to his death. Great choices!

MsMarvalus 14 September, 2008 09:19

I knew about Love Unlimited, even about Barry being married to one of them...and I love this song. Such sweet sentiments!

As always, great picks, Ms. Regina!
