Kissing you  –  Keith Washington (Assigned to Quincy Jones’s Qwest Records – where he released his first solo album ‘Make time for love’ … co-written & co-produced by Keith, this trak blew up the Soul radio stations and the charts)

Sinner Man  –  Sarah Dash (When female trio – Patti Labelle, Nona Hendryx & Sarah Dash better known as Labelle went there separate ways musically – Sarah’s first single on Kirshner Records became a Disco anthem)

Turn off the lights  –  Larry Young (Larry recorded for such prestigious Jazz label Blue Note … recorded for Arista Records – this album trak which features Linda Logan on vocals, became an underground masterpiece to the U.K.’s  Jazz-Funk fraternity)

Leave a message behind the door  –  Colonel Abrams (Released on Arthur Baker’s Streetwise Records and relegated to the B-side as Soul ballads were not the ‘order of the day’ … however the Soul fraternity discovered it & in the right Soul Clubs – it has become more popular than the A-side)
