DJ Polished Solid is back with another great mix for all the Grown Folks out there:

(September 1, 1953 – April 11, 2013)
Singer. Songwriter. Musician.

Don Blackman’s Don Blackman is one of the best albums ever recorded. Almost every song on that record is a classic. He never received his just due, but his music will live on forever. Whenever I want to experience beauty I just play Heart’s Desire or Morning Sunrise;)
