Hi there and welcome aboard. You're right on time for a beautiful trip on the Shady Train, and if the sight and sound of soul is your pleasure and what you treasure, you can bet your bottom we got 'em, baby.
groove that makes you wanna move
real smooth. It's Jackie Moore--
"This Time Baby!"
Now let's welcome aboard the big train a talented young R&B vocalist from New York. In 1983 she sang lead for producer John Robie's electro-funk band C-Bank on their top 5 club hit "One More Shot." Now out on her own, her latest single on the Atlantic label is perched at the top of the dance chart. The song is entitled "Bad Habits" and she is-- Jenny Burton!
And the Shady Train Gang's sho 'nuff diggin' C-Bank. Here's a tune that features the lead vocals of Whisper. It's a lowdown ditty from the big city called-- "Tonight!"
And our funky friends Kool and the Gang are runnin' down a slick sound that's one of the baddest things around. It's called-- Jungle Boogie!"
Now meet and greet a mixed race band from London that has been part of the UK's thriving soul and disco scene since the late 60s. The funky group has charted at least one hit every year from 1970 to 1984 including this 1978 single which is certified Gold in the U.S. The song is entitled "Every 1's a Winner" and they are-- Hot Chocolate!
We are both proud and excited to have with us what I can only describe as the current rage of the contemporary music world, and deservedly so because, I kid you not, they are as beautiful and talented as their latest single, "Jump (For My Love)," is successful. Let's have a great welcome, gang, for, in our opinion, the most remarkable group of female entertainers in the business. You know them as the fabulous-- Pointer Sisters!
That oughta hold you for a while. We hope you'll get into it with us again next time, and you can bet your last money, it's gonna be a stone gas, honey. I'm Don Cornelius, and as always
in parting, we wish you love...peace...and soul!
