24 05 2011

It’s the final two tracks from last weeks show 82 …

McFadden & Whitehead ~ I Heard It In A Love Song ~ TSOP ~ 1980

Gene McFadden & John Whitehead ~ I Heard It In A Love Song recorded at the Sigma Studios in Philly on The Sound Of Philadelphia Records in 1980

Diana Ross ~ My Old Piano ~ Motown ~ 1980

Following her success with The Boss album Diana Ross turned to Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers of Chic for her 1980 ‘Diana’ album. Edwards and Rogers had written a whole album’s worth of material with Aretha in mind, but she didn’t want it and it was given to Diana instead. Thirty years later it’s still her best-selling studio album having sold over ten million copies worldwide. The album includes Upside Down and I’m Coming Out as well as this track My Old Piano which was number 5 over here in the Autumn of 1980 – it was released in the States but only made 105.
