Eddy's 80s (Sunday) Grooves Part 14

To quote Collage: 'We're groovin' on a Sunday afternoon!' Enjoy part 14 of Eddy's 80s Grooves!

Bronx native Angela Bofill (picture) sang with Ricardo Morrero & the Group and the Dance Theater of Harlem chorus before her 1978 debut. With her strong, distinctive alto, she has carved a niche as an outstanding interpreter of soul ballads. Between 1978 and 1984, Bofill had consistent success on the R&B charts, with six albums making the Top 40 (five of which made the Top 100 on the pop charts as well), including two, Angel of the Night (1979) and Too Tough (1983), that made the Top Ten. During this period, she also placed seven singles in the R&B Top 40, with 'Too tough' making the Top Ten. Bofill's career cooled off after 1984, but she returned to the R&B charts with Intuition (1988), I Wanna Love Somebody (1993), and Love in Slow Motion (1996). (source: Allmusic.com).

'Holding out for love' reached #26 on the Billboard R&B chart and #32 in the Dutch Pop chart in the early spring of 1982.
