Alexander O'Neal - Fake (12Inch) (1987) (NL)

This man soared under the production of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis (The Time).. so yes .. he was yet another brick in the Minneapolis Music  Machine.. (so thank Father Prince) although he is a country boy from Mississippi.    He shined (both aesthetically and theoretically) ahem..  and teamed up many times with our girl Cherelle for classics like Innocent, Saturday Love, and Never Knew Love Like This… they were our Captain and Tenille, our Elton John and KiKi Dee if you will.. ENOUGH TALKIN.. get out your best cha cha shoes.. and let’s get to steppin!!!!!!

In 2011 young upstart and indie hero Toro Y Moi  released his critically acclaimed EP “Freaking Out”

It was a great EP and it contained a magnificent re-working of Alexander and Cherrelle’s classic “Saturday Love”.    Enjoy it .. and Enjoy your day …
