“Yacht Rock”

This isn’t new… but it never gets old. That is, if you’re like me and have an affinity for vinyl so dusty it makes you cough.

“Yacht Rock” was a Channel 101 webisode series following a fictionalized Michael McDonald and Kenny Loggins as they relive the stories behind their greatest hits. In the above episode, Michael meets a young Warren G, and history is made.

I tend to pull a lot of yacht rock on my crate digging outings. I’m talking grocery store music. CVS soul. Rite-Aid funk. Doobie Brothers, Steely Dan, Player – these are the distant cousins of Earth, Wind & Fire and Sly and even Teddy Pendergrass.

So kick up your flip-flops, grab yourself a Mojito and enjoy the smooth grooves. I give you three of my favorites…

Eagles – One of These Nights

Hall & Oates – I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)

Ambrosia – How Much I Feel
