“Secret Rendezvous” was the fourth single from Karyn White’s 1988 debut LP. It was her only single that topped the Billboard Dance Charts.
The legend of Mazarati usually begins and ends with their “participation” in the development of Prince’s #1 smash hit “Kiss”. Prince gave producer Brownmark and the band a bluesy little demo that the band took and reworked into a hot, funky jam. After hearing what the band had done with the track, Prince took it back, added some guitar and vocals while keeping Mazarati’s background vocals intact. During the band’s time on Paisley Park Records, they released one LP and several singles. For the next LP they signed with Motown Records and brought Brownmark back in to produce along with Bernadette Cooper from Klymaxx. The result was, unfortunately, a very forgettable album that spawned 2 singles that didn’t chart on any major US singles charts. Today you have the opportunity to take a listen to the first single, “The Saga Of A Man”, in the 12″ format.
Just remember I’m forever your girl, He could promise the world, You gotta remember, I’m forever your girl.
I’m forever your baby, Just remember I’m forever your girl, He could promise the world, You gotta remember I’m forever your girl.
Everybody’s talking all this stuff about me, Why don’t they just let me live? Tell me why I don’t need commission, Make my own decisions, That’s my prerogative, It’s my prerogative.
I said girl (What cha gonna do?) Wanna show you a love that you just gotta see, (I just wanna talk to you) But she won`t talk to me.
And I’m going crazy, Trying to make her notice me, I go up, I get down, I turn all around, She won’t talk to me, she won’t talk to me.
“Jazzie’s Groove” by Soul II Soul is mostly spoken word over a nice mellow funky groove that tells where the group came from and where they are going.
