Album of the Day
Return of the Mack
Born in West Germany on this day in 1972, 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 the 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.
