Eddy's 80s Grooves Part 4 (Best Of 1980)

Let’s go back to 1980, when hip hop started to break through, disco slowly disappeared from the surface to become club music again and 'Escape' from Rupert Holmes was number one on the Billboard Hot 100 (an important song in the very funny movie The Secret Life of Walter Mitty). Enjoy part 4 of Eddy’s 80s Grooves! (also available on DJ History).

Wardell Piper used to be a member of Philly-soul group First Choice. In 1979 she recorded a self-titled album with producers John H. Fitch, Jr. and Reuben Cross (who co-wrote Evelyn King's 'Shame') on Midsong International Records. The album included 'Super sweet', which went to number 20 on the R&B chart and 'Captain boogie', which went to number 33 on the R&B chart in early 1979. 'The power of love', produced by John Davis, was the b-side of 'Gimme something real' that was written by Ashford & Simpson. It went to number 53 on the R&B Singles chart in 1980.
