Player "Spies of Life" (1981; 2016.08.17; SICP-4915; AOR CITY 1000 Low-Priced Reissue)
This was Player's final album before breaking up. They did reunite many years later and also released a couple of studio albums. I almost didn't buy this CD as a part of my AOR CITY adventure, but then I remembered how much I love Think Out Loud (Peter Beckett/Steve Kipner duo). At least now I have something else with Beckett on vocals. I actually bought another edition of "Spies of Life" several years ago, to help my friend in Bali who was looking for this album. It was the Korean mini LP replica edition from 2011. Thankfully my friend allowed me to have a listen on his CD. "If Looks Could Kill" and "Thank You for the Use of Your Love" immediately became my favorites from "Spies of Life" since then.
With Hitomi Sasaki who is my friend from NY !
I’m happy we perform together:) .
Dennis Edwards feat. Siedah Garrett - “Don’t Look Any Further” (1984)
The bass groove, played by session man Nathan East, was sampled by Eric B. & Rakim on their 1987 hip-hop landmark "Paid In Full," which lead to many samples and interpolations over the next several years.
The song was written by Franne Golde, Duane Hitchings and Dennis Lambert, and produced by Lambert. It finds the couple looking forward to a romantic interlude, with Edwards letting her know that she need look no further for "a man to take over."
The part where Garrett and Edwards sing in another language is a loose translation of "Don't Look Any Further" in Swahili: "Day-o day-o, mombajee ai-o."
This was issued on the Gordy label, which was part of Motown Records.
In 1968, Dennis Edwards replaced David Ruffin in The Temptations, handling lead vocals on many classics, including "I Can't Get Next To You" and "Cloud Nine." He left the group in 1983 and released his debut solo album, Don't Look Any Further (1984) with the title track the first single, being by far his biggest solo hit. Edwards returned to The Temptations in 1987, but left in 1989. He later toured as "The Temptations Review featuring Dennis Edwards."
