When it comes to favorite songs, "Expansions" by Lonnie Linston Smith has to be top 3. The song literally makes people high and I'm not talking about drugs here. I'm talking about a spiritual high. There's nothing better to end a dope party with and with that said there's not much else I can say about it other than "Expansions" is one of the ultimate jams hands down.
Last year I got the chance to see Lonnie Smith perform the song onstage at Morgan State University. It was awesome. The guy was sharing the bill with none other than Roy Ayers and honestly Lonnie did a little outshining especially when he played "Expansions". It was like the whole audience was hit by a really heavy spiritual sensation. Words can't really describe it.
