selector okunola: love lock, 1978

You’re most likely familiar with Mtume’s Juicy Fruit, the hit Notorious BIG sampled for Juicy (no fruit), but may be unfamiliar with Love Lock, the breezy 1978 song Selector Okunola has decided to share with us today– I didn’t even know the two songs were by the same group and he’s been playing this song around the house and at BBQs for years.

There’s no words on the track, just a lovely female voice kinda going “ohhhh ohhhh aaahhh ohhh” over and over– but not in that way, get your mind out of the gutter! It reminds me of summer drives with the windows down and the dog in the backseat, Lake Michigan gleaming in the sun, iced tea, long dresses, big sunglasses, and open-toed high heeled sandals. We hope you like it.
