Kiki Dee, Cerrone, and Maze ~ this weeks show starters from Paul

Kiki Dee ~ I Got The Music In Me ~ Rocket Records ~ 1974

From Bradford – Pauline Matthews AKA Kiki Dee (and not Elkie Brookes as I called her once during the show – Steve and I were having an off-air chat about them both!) This fabulous track was written by Tobias Boshell, arranged by Richard Hewson – of RAH Band fame. For anyone who doubts the inclusion of Kiki on our show I’d like to point out that she actually made an album on Tamla Motown before this in 1970. I was reminded of this brilliant tune by my friend Gina who I recently found on Facebook after 19 years – it’s great to have you and Rory back on our radar!

Cerrone ~ Look For Love ~ Malligator / CBS ~1979

Written and Produced by Cerrone from the Cerrone IV album from 1978 released as a single in 1979 over here.

Maze ~ Running Away ~ Capitol ~ 1981

CLASSIC Frankie Beverley – a number 7 on the US R&B chart, taken from the Live In New Orleans album.
If you haven’t got the album do yourself a favour – it’s cheap as chips on iTunes.
