Eddy's 80s Grooves Part 12

Enjoy part 12 of Eddy's 80s Grooves! 'I specialize in love' by Sharon Brown went to number 13 in the Dutch Singles Chart in the spring of 1982. It's one of the tracks on the latest LateNightTales episode, called 'Automatic soul', compiled by Tom Findlay (Groove Armada).

Ronika is also on the latest LateNightTales edition, singing the Dennis Edwards classic 'Don't look any further'. Perhaps one could say that she brings back the glamour of 1980s disco. The singer from Nottingham sounds a little bit like Madonna in her 'Borderline' days. She released one of the best albums of 2014 ('Selectadisc)' and is on tour with The Human League now. Check out her funny video that accompanies her great new single 'Marathon'!

While working one night at Philadelphia International Records' recording base, producer T. Life overheard some tantalizing vocals coming from a washroom. There he discovered 16-year-old office cleaner Evelyn King and her mother. The singer was signed to RCA soon afterwards. Her debut album 'Smooth talk' was released in the late summer of 1977. But it was a song written by John Fitch and Reuben Cross, called 'Shame', that gave her career-launching success. 'Your personal touch' was one of her post-disco releases.
