This week on Talking 80s Music, we investigate the allure and longevity of Grammy-winning U.K. pop/jazz ensemble Sade. We will also play a retrospective mix, the album version of "Smooth Operator," a 1988 recording of "Paradise" and a sample of the title track from their new studio album, Soldier Of Love.
Sade has always been an episode that we wanted to do for the show. Something about the easy grace that flows through their songs. Technically, all went well. We are just a few weeks from testing out a few changes and our hopes are for the better. Otherwise, we will keep forging a wide but varied path leaving nothing but dust in our wake.
