Album of the Day
Return of the Mack
Born 50 years ago today in West Germany, Mark Morrison grew up in Leicester, England and became one of that country's hottest R&B stars with a string of singles culminating in international smash “Return of the Mack.” While the song provided the title for performer's 1996 longplayer, there are four more U.K. Top Ten hits here - “Trippin',” “Horny,” “Moan and Groan” and a remix of “Crazy” - a first for a debut album. With a strong, distinctive voice, the singer earned Brit Award and Mercury Prize nominations on the strength of this set, which hit a sweet spot with new jack swing fans around the world to the tune of some three million sales. We'll wish Mark Morrison a happy birthday with another spin of RETURN OF THE MACK.
