It's been a while since we heard from A-Ko, a 20-year-old producer/DJ from Iowa(?!) that caught my attention almost two years ago with what I called "his Go! Team meets RJD2 meets James Brown brand of soulful production." On this instantly loveable new jam, he samples the "Miss A Theme Song" from a '70s children's educational TV show called "The Letter People," and it ends up sounding like Carly Simon fronting some lost '60s soul band:

A-Ko Soul '69 Part II


Here's the sample source, from an early '70s episode of "The Letter People."

P.S. i actually got the vocals from the hard-to-find Letter People 2-disc set put out in 1977 or so. a few of the horn stabs in the song are also from the Mr S. song "Supersocks"...i dont think the video for him on youtube has the same music.

glad you knew the source!

I always found it rude that all the Letter Women were vowels. Can't a sistah be a C every now and again?! That's pissed me off since I was five years old. Besides that, the song is really really great. I like it a lot.

The game has a lot of rf gold, as long as you join to play this game you will get
them. you should try your best to earn as much rf online gold as you can, so you are strong and no one can
fight you. you can get a lot of rf money in the game, so many other players want to play with you together. As long as you have the rf cp you will be strong and you can go to kill the monsters to upgrade alone. i like the cheap rf gold very much.
