AKIRA JIMBO feat. Maxi Anderson – “Our sweet melody” (1989)

First of all I wanna thank my dear friend Paul Grestock who introduced me to this sublime Jazzy Soul gem which features Maxi Anderson on lead vocals. She is one of my all-time-favorite singers. This exceptional collaboration with Japanese drummer Akira Jimbo was recorded in 1989. This great track is written and arranged by the very talented keyboardist Randy Kerber. Taken from Akira’s album “Palette” released on Optimism Records.

FREDERICK KNIGHT – “You’re the best thing in my life” (1981)

Frederick Knight has been a very important singer, songwriter and record producer associated with some great recordings with The Controllers. It’s worthy to note that he also wrote the #1 classic Disco hit "Ring my bell” for Anita Ward in 1979. This mellow stepper I chose here is taken from his 3d solo LP “Knight time” released on Juana Records in 1981. He also released it as a 7” single in 1982.
