    Montell Jordan had a low-key good career. His ego wrecked his personal life and that railroaded his professional life. That's too bad.

    This was such a smooth cut. Almost jazz in its rendering.


    It kind of reminds me of...

    I Can't Help It by Michael Jackson, which ranks among my favorite songs by him. I wish he would have focused on more diverse music because he typecast himself with the pop output. His range in the end was seriously limited and it didn't need to be. I'm convinced he grew to appreciate his celebrity more than his music.

    How in the world is this song not considered one of his better records? I've heard everything else on the radio 100 times but haven't heard this since 1989. That's too bad.

    Of course, Siedah Garrett never had the career that her voice should have commanded. Here she is in Dennis Edwards' biggest hit (without the Temptations).

    I always like this one by Michael and Patti Austin.

    Jerry, this is the 3rd time this one has been posted here. LOL! IT is an all time JAM!

    Another duet with another underappreciated voice (Syreeta Wright). I used to chill with this song back in the day but only heard it on my mix tapes. Don't know if it played anywhere else.

    And here is the song that should have launched her to something grand:

    It should have. It was out for a very long time. I remember when they debuted it on the Mike Douglas Show very early in 1979. It did not become a top hit until 1980.

    Here is the strange thing about "With You I'm Born Again". It was on the soundtrack to the movie "Fast Break" which was released on February 23, 1979. The song was not released (even though they had performed it on television when the film was released) until December 1979 making it a chart record in 1980 a full year and more after the film's release.

    I love song facts. There have been many accidental hits. There are also a bunch of songs that we remember played in clubs and at parties that were not actually hits because they were never released as singles. Sounds like With You I'm Born Again was nearly one of those until somebody finally wised up.

  15. #1315
    This may have popped up earlier. Apologies if it has. But I used to love this record.

    Exactly. Some of those songs we heard in club were never even commercially released and just made for club play. They had what they called "DJ Pools" that they used to circulate those types of records.

    Nope, first appearance here! LOL! This is one of my favorites from the Fall of '78. Partied hard to it.

    I'm not sure. I bought his solo album, which was good but didn't have any singles. His voice was silky but I think he needed the right producer to turn him loose, which I suppose he never found.

    They were on The Breakfast Club (YouTube) recently. Seems as if they're going the hip-hop route. The cut was not memorable. Trap Soul, no doubt.

    It was way too obvious that they were mimicking New Edition. "Candy Rain", "Candy Girl" come on dudes! LOL!

    This one got my attention from the first time I heard it back in the early 90s

    Isley Brothers' T-Neck years were iconic. More great songs than I can name from just my memory.

    Ronald Isley might be on the same mountain of unmistakable voices that Sam Cooke, Nat "King" Cole and Louis Armstrong are on.

    They were two-hit wonders. What about Musical Youth, which was a one-hit wonder? There's no way their sad story should have ended the way it did. Can you imagine being so young and talented only to have everything unravel after an international hit with your first single?

    The sad part is that it will never be that good again. Check out a video I am posting to the thread about the Universal Music Fire. Incredible.

    The song was so classy, melodic, bluesy with a hint of Jazz! Anita was at her Peak here. It is a crime that they did not immediately follow up this album with similar high quality music.

    In my opinion, she had the misfortune of releasing a perfect 10 as her first album. Very seldom do you get a record where every song is absolutely perfect but that one might have been it. Sets such a high bar that she couldn't possibly match, even if she had two or three excellent songs on her next record. We've seen it happen before. In my opinion, Michael Jackson never rose to the level of Thriller or Off The Wall again and it's why I wasn't a big fan of his in the '90s like I was in the '80s.

    Well you know, I have a connection to a lot of people. Not by choice, just by life. I use to pay $5 to see Anita Baker sing with her original band Chapter 8 in 1980. Her first solo album was actually " The Songstress" in 1983. Even though she is from my hometown and went to my high school for a short time, I had forgotten her. Another guy from Toledo who had moved to Denver after I did was raving about this new girl singer from Toledo. It was Anita Baker. The last time I saw her, we flew from NYC to Detroit Christmas 2006, first class..........hehehehehe! Anita is the type of artists that you can always count on liking at least one song on her albums. Luckily, I liked 90 % of her music. It's not well known that she is still performing after announcing her retirement 2 years ago. She'll be playing Montreux July 8th.
