so how do u connect Prince w/ Dr.Dre, EazyE, Suge Knight & Lee Oskar (of WAR)? - with a "Z" of course, JIMMY Z that is!!!... allow me to introduce (or RE-introduce) to u Jimmy "Z", an unbelievable sax, harmonica & flute player still to this day... in this two-pronged & #Forgotten80s post, I'm highlighting during his Ruthless years & slightly back to 1988 when he also released an album on IRS Records in their No Speak instrumental series... & before I go any further, I'd like to say that I've been in contact w/ Jimmy Z personally this past week & got his blessing to do this... sooo, let's begin this in 1991... Jimmy Z's 2nd album "Muzical Madness" is released on Eazy E's label , accompanied by the only single, "Funky Flute" (f/ ), however by the time this happened, (paraphrasing Jimmy) Suge Knight had been in Dre's ear to start Death Row & Dre had been salty over his production deal w/ that things came to a halt pretty fast & after a re-released dance version of "Funky Flute", album promotions were dead in the water... but before this, Jimmy & Dre worked damn near every day for 2 years prior... 2 Aquarians having fun & making great music, along the side of dinners with Eazy, NWA & Ruthless execs at lavish LA restaurants & clubs... the tensions between Dre & Eazy were rising though, especially with Suge coming thru Jimmy's sessions putting the bug in Dre's ear sort to speak, & things got bad when a verbal & physical altercation came about over whether Jimmy Z's "Crazy You" cover should be used or kept off the album altogether (the full story including flying furniture can be read on Jimmy Z's incredible website, ztribe.com along w/ a ton of other history, & funny moments), the Ruthless offices began to be an armed camp w/ electronic locks, & security cams but thankfully, Jimmy's incredible cover of Prince's 1978 "Crazy You" song was released & can be heard in this multi-layered post along w/ Prince's (blocked🤨)... Jimmy's version features a harmonica solo using harps, a huge influence of his he's stated... Jimmy, thanks for your blessings man ✌💜🎶 ▪The Lavender Luxury▪

it's pretty safe to say in the 1980's, Warners Bros. had the music game down lock, stock & barrel; full of artists like Prince, Madonna, Fleetwood Mac, Van Halen, ZZ Top & the subsidiary labels like Paisley Park, Sire, & Reprise that put out a slew of artists/bands as well, but with THAT, it's almost certain that a few artists/bands will not get the correct push/promotion that they should (ex: Jill Jones)... one of such was the band P.M, lead by brothers Peter Mayer (lead vocals, guitar, keyboard) & Jim Mayer (bass, keyboard programming) along with drummer Roger Guth, who did have a minor hit with their 1988 single "Piece Of Paradise" off of their self-titled album that same year, however their album is rare to come by on LP, & ever harder to find on CD, but if found, is full of good lil musical gems... not long after this album, Jimmy Buffet's producer heard them & asked them to join his Corral Reefer Band in 1989 & help produce his next album... although still performing at times together, Peter Mayer is still the singer/songwriter releasing his own albums thru the decades & Jim Mayer is mostly a mainstay in Buffet's band but has also done a few side ventures himself along the way... but besides this single & album, the only other song released by P.M. on Warner Bros was a Christmas song (& a pretty damn good one too), as by 1990 they were no longer on the label & the band has essentially become a #Forgotten80s name... ▪The Lavender Luxury▪

▪a personal fave▪ ...driving back home yesterday on the long & lonely first few exits on the NJ Turnpike, I put on an old playlist I made 7 or 8 years ago of all slow tempo 80s ballads, & 3/4ths thru, "Is Anybody Out There?" came on from Frankie Goes To Hollywood, & just made me think "damn, this song is incredible" as I decided to do something I usually never do & replayed the 7+ minute song twice more... the production, arrangements, instruments, lyrics & Holly Johnson's voice just make it PERFECT to me; a perfect combination... as I just sat there & drove miles upon lonely miles, the lyrics just took me on an imaginary journey that most songs (before videos came out) were SUPPOSED TO DO! (let the listener create his/her own video in their head)... "Give me a real life / the worry & the strife / I'll throw it, out of the window / to the dogs below / so come with me / I'll guide u through / wardrobes of fantasy / and treasure chests, of what could be / a world without anxiety / a legacy / of golden days, golden days, GOLD-EN DAYS" (▪Franke Goes To Hollwood - "Is Anybody Out There" 1986) ...even though I loved the songs on their first LP more, as well as a fee other singles & b-sides, this song here may just be my all-time favorite from them... ...hope everybody enjoyed their weekend, I know I did ✌💜🎶 ▪The Lavender Luxury▪ #Forgotten80s
