With the passing of Sylvia Robinson on 9-29-11, Ol' Mello's posting her first album.

She's left us with quite a legacy having been a singer, musician, music producer & record label executive.

In 1972 Sylvia sent her demo of Pillow Talk to Al Green. When Green passed on it due to his religious beliefs, she decided to record it herself.

Beside all of the firme artists & tunes that came from her All Platinum, Stang, Turbo & Vibration labels, she was also the founder & CEO of the hip hop label Sugar Hill Records. She is credited as having been the driving force behind the first rap song to be released by a hip hop act..."Rapper's Delight" by the Sugar Hill Gang.


01. Pillow Talk

02. Give It Up In Vain

03. Sunday

04. Don't Leave Me Starving

05. My Thing

06. Didn't I

07. Had Any Lately

08. Not On The Outside

09. Cowards Way Out

I'd like to give a big shout out to the master of music and memories Mr. P-Stylze for extending me the invitation to the site. I see some of my friends here and hope I will be welcomed as part of this family as I bring some great oldies from several genres of music to your table and your CD player.
  For me the Cali Lifestyle is working hard, paying the bills and taking care of family. When there is time I like to listen to the oldies, BBQ with family & friends, cruise the boulevard and of course throw back a few brews.
  I had originally started this series UNDER THE COVERS (ON THE LATIN SIDE) as music me & the old lady could cruise to or just kick back and enjoy. Some of the artists are still performing live & I do try to catch as many of their shows as I can.
  My first post is Volume 4 of the series as it makes it's world premiere here on Cali Lifestyles. I will post the other three volumes if you all would like. Give me a shout out in the comments section. With much love & respect.   EAST LA GUY.
