BLIND TO REASON (RCA Records, 1988)
"Blind To Reason" was my major label debut on RCA Records, released in September 1988. My international hit "Talk It Over" came from this album, as did the other hits: "Bring It All Back" and "How Bout Us" (a duet with the late great Betty Wright). I had some wonderful musicians on this record: My good friend bassist Fernando Saunders (he played bass on "Talk It Over" and "Romantic Heart"), (Verdine White (he played bass on "Two Hearts"), Rick Derringer (he played guitar on "Romantic Heart", "Tears Of Love" and "Empty As The Wind"), ira Siegel (he played guitar on "Hard Life", "Bring It All Back"), Tom Majesky (he played guitar on "Bring It All Back", "Finally Found A Friend", "Blind To Reason" and guitar and electric sitar on "Talk It Over"). Then there the fabulous singers: Will Downing, Craig Derry, Audrey Wheeler, Cindy Mizelle, The Black Flames: (Nate Burgess, Joe Adams, John Sykes, Don Richardson), Percussionist Joey Cardello (congas on "Romantic Heart" and "Tears Of Love"), Cedric Sampson (drums on "Two Hearts"). And of course my excellent producers Michael Baker and Axel Korell.
