Michael Sterling Special Limited Edition (New Records N/R 2061) 1991

Is It Still Good To Ya; Holiday; Love Don't Love Nobody; Please Don't Go; Born To Love You; Fade To Black

Produced by : Michael Sterling

Although I've spun you Holiday, a nice little slow stepper the stand-out track is Is It Still Good To Ya, the Ashford & Simpson song & also a hit For Teddy Pendergass. Michael's performance is just second-to-none, I've not heard this song sung, with such emotion before! stunning.

If I have one criticism that is he sound a little young, but 10/10 for effort, like an early Michael Jackson performance. It's also on a Magnum Records 12". His first label was Success Records (1983-87), he also produced Gigolo while there. He rounded-up the eighties with Magnum Records. I found this in 1992 on a trip to Manchester accompanied by local DJ & friend Mr. Merry, he also had a copy posted to him, I think he wanted to see where all my soul dealers were! Holiday is a self penned song that is aimed a girl he knew and he's coming on strong, I wonder weather it worked for him? The album was recorded at CSI Studios in Hollywood. All the tracks a fine ballads with simple eighties type production, copies of this album are long gone.
