|Early 80' r & b slow jam..i know some lyrics but not the name or the group..haven't heard i since quiet storm days back in 80's..please help|
The group name is Windjammer and the song title is "Stay."
Its off their first album
Windjammer I (1983)
Windjammer (MCA Records 1983)
Windjammer II (MCA Records 1984)
Windjammer III (MCA Records 1985)
Formed in New Orleans, Louisiana, U.S.A.
Windjammer comprised of:
Kevin McLin (guitar / producer)
Roy Paul Joseph (guitar)
Chris Severin (bass)
Darrell Winchester (drums)
Carl Dennis (lead vocals)
and Fred McCray (keyboards).
Windjammer hail from New Orleans.
During 1977, Kevin McLin broke into a hotel and gave Tito Jackson, of The Jacksons, a Windjammer demo tape while riding an escalator.
Two years later Jacksons' father and manager Joe Jackson signed them to his management company.
A debut single 'Stay' sold well around New Orleans before the group were signed by MCA in 1982.
In 1983, their first album 'Windjammer' was released.
In 1984, 'Windjammer II' featured 'Tossing And Turning', a UK Top 20 hit.
The song was remixed and re-released by Debut Records in 1989.
In 1985, a final album for MCA was released, entitled (you've guessed it!), 'Windjammer III'.
The group have adopted a low profile since that release.
New Orleans based Windjammer released 3 albums on MCA between 1983 and 1985. I'm especially looking for tracks from the second one. "II" includes the slightly mellow UK Top20 hit "Tossing and Turning" plus some very fine ballads. A compilation please!
THANKS Dan for the information!
