Who said the 80's was all electronic, well the staff a Capitol records were still being put to good use in 1981 courtesy of Lamont Dozier. For those that don't know the he was part of the 'hit team' Holland/Dozier/Holland with Motown in the mid-to-late 60's, producing 10 number ones for the Supremes and a fair few for the Four Tops.
Future Flight was: Sy Jeffries (lead vocals/drums), David Swanson (lead vocals/keyboards), Brynwood Tanner (guitars) and Anthony Patler (all). When I mentioned electronic above I should point out that the strings are synths here but well programmed to sound natural.
Most tracks Dozier had a hand in writing and the tune I picked today he wrote ALL himself, Hip-Notic Lady, I love the line "Shooting Stars a'flyin' " and the flute wisps by - all proof that the musicians and singers were together in the studio collaborating with each one. The other nice 2-steppers are: You Should Have Been There and Let Me Love You Where It Hurts.
