Scarred knees  –  Esther Phillips (Discovered by Johnny Otis & named after a Phillips gas/petrol station – Esther jumped musical hoops of Soul, Jazz, Blues and Gospel … from her first album on Kudu Records, a unit of CTI Records)

Unity  –  The O’Jay’s (With studio superstars MFSB as the backing band – Eddie Levert and company kept the world dancing and thinking with their message songs … or as one of their later album was titled ‘Message in the music’)

Everybody hustle  – Funky People (a pre-Brass Construction single that was co-produced by Jeff Lane & Randy Muller – both who were the producer and arranger of the first B.C. album … released on Roulette Records)

Easy as life  –  Deborah Cox (Canadian Deborah came prominence via Clive Davis’s Arista Records … her singles were remixed by David Morales, Hex Hector and other top Dj/Remixers … after becoming an independent artist – she did not forget her Dance/House/Garage fans)
