Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:19pm listener Rey:

the Sylvers were really good and very Jacksons-like but Leon Sylvers went on to produce a lot of great music on his own too
  9:22pm paparay:

@listener Rey:Indeed. He took R&B into a new stratosphere in the 80's. You should read the interview w/ him in an issue of Wax Poetics magazine. And check their episode of Unsung.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24pm listener Rey:

Thanks, gotta go read that. I love all his work at Solar
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24pm Cooh John:

70's so far, paparay. it was s great time to live and see live music. Do you remember The Villaruiz sisters, DjLorraine?
  9:26pm paparay:

I have to locate the special edition of Glow Of Love where Luther Vandross does some extra scatting.
