Interactive Yacht Rock article

From the Channel 101 message boards, "Yacht Rock" creator JD Ryznar (who apparently dug the Thriller revisit from a few months ago on here) posted a great interactive article from AP on Yacht Rock. You can find it here. Lots of great tidbits on there (congrats on getting an agent, JD!), especially the parts at the end where they have snippets of some of JD's favorite YR tracks.

Good call on the Loggins versions of McDonald songs. I've heard his version of "I Gotta Try" but not "No Lookin' Back."

I'll be doing a bit more of a Yacht Rock/Michael McDonald intensive post in a few months. (Can't wait, can you?)
