Actually, this mix was done in 2005. I Didn't post it until I dug it out years later. A favorite cause the people who influenced the song selections were favorite people and good friends.

R.I.P. Loleatta Holloway

Karizma is Dead (Requiem 8)

One of the Pillars in Disco Music has Passed on. Loleatta Holloway Died March 21 2011.
I am grateful to have come into awareness of her music by way of House music while it was in its
early years. You could always hear exactly where she was coming from when she blew her tunes out.
I felt connected the very first time I heard her sing and now I have all these priceless treasures to remind me.
Her work is Cameo'd here in a mix by one of Baltimore's deepest House dj's Karizma. God Bless this Beautiful, Gifted Woman and care for her grieving family and friends.

Going Thru It - Icehouse

I wish I had a chance to meet her personally. she liked this mix and told me so thru Myspace. She is my no.3 top friend and has been since 2007. http://www.myspace.com/theo.frank

Rare Groovz 148 - Mr. Kaplan

Loleatta Holloway had a way with expressions that that let you know she was forreal.
Whether singing it out in songs like Mama Don't, Papa Won't, Hit & Rum or Catch me on the Rebound, or giving it to you straight as in the infamous bootleg "Dish". You knew who she was and where she was coming from. The essence of Soul music. She will live on through her melodies and your memories of her.

The Classics - Kim Lightfoot

I never got the chance to see her perform but I loved her music just the same.
This mix says to me that she set many nights on fire. when you needed a performance that you could relate to, she rose to the occasion.
She laid the rules of loving her out in "Hit & Run", and set you ablaze at the same time. This is
How I will remember the magnificent lady known as Loleatta Holloway. God blessed us with her soulful presence and now he has claimed back, that which is his.

Hit & Run - Reworked
