Jeffrey Osborne (1984) Stay With Me Tonight UK 12″


Very Brief:
Jeffrey Osborne’s self-titled debut album of 1982 reached #49 on the Billboard 200 albums chart and #3 on the R&B albums chart.  He followed that up with 1983’s ‘Stay With Me Tonight’ which reached #25 on the Billboard 200 albums chart and #3 on the R&B albums chart.  The title track “Stay With Me Tonight” was the second single released from the album and we will take a look and listen at the UK 12″ release of that tune from 1984.  As per usual with UK 12″ releases, we get goodies that didn’t appear on the US releases.  The A side is the US Club Mix that clocks in at 5:43.  Over on the B side is a medley of Osborne’s hits titled “The Jeffrey Osborne Soul Mix” and credited to Froggy’s UK Mixes.  Also included on this side is a remix of “Plane Love” that is also credited to Froggy.  So, who is this Froggy, you might ask?  Well, his name is Steven Howlett and on a trip from the UK to the US in the late 70s, he met Larry Levan and visited the Studio 54 and Paradise Garage clubs where he soaked in all the DJ knowledge he could absorb.  He returned to the UK and set up a sound system based on what he learned in the US and took it on the road, wowing crowds at Knebworth and at Caister Soul Weekenders.  Froggy is also well-known on UK radio and the BBC where he has hosted shows on Radio One and London’s Capital Radio.

    A great singer who was criminally ignored by the ‘music biz’.
