This initially started out as a task Papa LowKey asked me to do earlier this week. He’s doing a presentation tomorrow morning and needed some old school tunage for it. Of course since his son owns a music blog and he hates the thought of attempting to venture over to iTunes to find his requested material, I took on the job. And as I was putting together the list tonight, it hit me: THIS IS SOME GOOD SHIT. To take it a step further, one of my followers suggested I post the playlist. And to take it a step even further, some more of my followers wanted me to send them the actual product.

And to take it ONE MORE STEP FURTHER, I decided to turn it into a weekly weekend series titled Oldies But Goodies presented by Papa LowKey and I. Cool idea? Good. Here’s the first offering featuring James Brown, Marvin Gaye, Harold Melvin And The Blue Notes, The O’Jays, Kool and The Gang and The Temptations! Tracklisting and download link after the jump!
