    This song is tattooed in my mind from the '80s. I wish I could go back and relive some of the moments that I experienced back then. Coincidentally, that was about when I met the missus.

    This isn't soul but it was from that same period. This record changed rap in a bunch of ways. It was the first real beef record to sell and it was also one of the first to change cadence of the lyrics. That's Teddy Riley working his magic behind him.

    Babyface and L.A. escaped the Deele and blew up the same way that Jam & Lewis (Flyte Time) did with the Time. Both were in great bands but they made their marks in the industry by being some of the best producers of the '80s and '90s.

    Speaking of the Deele:

    They had some of the greatest ballads, including this one which I don't think was released but a lot of people in my crowd would jump on the dance floor when it came on.

    Another Babyface record. This was before the Deele. I'm not sure if it led to the Deele signing with SOLAR.

    Speaking of Jam & Lewis, Alexander O'Neal's "Hearsay" album remains one of the best things I heard in the '80s. Every song on that record was a strike. This might be my favorite.

    And his first record, also produced by them, embodies the Minneapolis sound as well as anything outside of Prince's music.

    I met Cherelle at a club out on 8 Mile one night back in the mid-80s. I scared her a bit when I introduced her to a couple of buddies of mine that everyone thinks are gangsters. hehehehehehe.......!

    I can't really put my finger on it, but I have never liked Al B. Sure for some reason.

    When my nephew was a toddler, he loved Kool Moe Dee's "Wild, Wild West". He's 32 years old now. LOL!

    Here was the "masterpiece" and a bona fide Detroit Classic JAM! "Frontline Symphony" - Eddy Grant:

    His first album, like Bobby Brown's "Don't Be Cruel" and Keith Sweat's "Make It Last Forever" might as well have served as his greatest hits collection as far as I'm concerned. The songs were all under produced but easy to dance to. The best thing that he did was his part of Q's "Secret Garden".

This song is an example of something that nobody in my clique ever heard but brings back a ton of memories for me.
    And before they changed their name to GQ, they were The Rythm Makers. Here's their club hit ZONE:

    I did not know that they had a previous incarnation. I wish we had "like" buttons on this forum.

    I believe ZONE was bigger in England.

    I was a big GQ fan since "Disco Nights". They had a tight ensemble. Their "Face To Face" album was so solid but didn't break because it only had one really chartable song ("Shake"). But in my opinion, it was by far their best record. This is a song that I always dug off of it.

  19. #1269
    FACE TO FACE sounds good! I was a club DJ then and DISCO NIGHTS was a favorite. I liked diversity in the night's composite sound and GQ stood out. Part of the wave of "rock" "freak" records so popular then.

    Maybe not a big seller,but..your baby doesn't love you anymore-ruby an the romantics is a soul gem.

    Any idea why the title is STRAWBERRY LETTER "23" when they sing "22"??

  25. #1275
    researching music on the internet so often offers rewarding surprises. like finding out STRAWBERRY LETTER 23 is a remake. And was not remade far from the original.



    quite a gift from Shuggie.
