Still no denying their successful run!! A lot of hits!
Ok true they lost of lot of funk after becoming crossover band. But they still rocked even with the white sounding type of music. I saw then in concert about 10 years ago, JT still got it.

You know Slim music today gets on my nerves, it a shame that I can't find anything good on the radio or in the music stores.

Thx God for the classics.

I must agree!! It had a little less cross-over appeal than "Thriller". but it was better. It was more R&B driven. Cuts like "can't help it", "Working day and night" really set a tone for urban radio.

There's always a danger for a group to push one guy up front.

You got a point. And if it is glaringly obvious who is the most talented, you gotta push him up front to sell records.

The Jacksons..... Michael



Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes.........Teddy
