Black Box (1990) I Don't Know Anybody Else 12"

Black Box hailed from Italy and appeared on the music scene in the US in a big way in 1990. The group garnered two back-to-back #1 Dance hits with today’s record and “Everybody Everybody”. They topped the chart again in 1991 with “Strike It Up” which would also be the last single by the group to even appear on the US dance charts. Black Box were “fronted” by lip-sync singer Katrin Quinol but, the actual vocals on their 3 hits were performed by Weather Girls veteran Martha Wash. Wash was uncredited and wound up suing for credit and compensation, rightfully so. The suit was settled in 1990 to Wash’s satisfaction.

Ronnie Milsap (1979) Get It Up 12" Promo

Ronnie Milsap is primarily known as a country artist. He has crossed over on the pop charts on several occasions, previously noted here with “She Loves My Car”. One interesting fact I discovered, while researching chart info for this record, was that Ronnie had a Top 20 hit on the Billboard Top Selling Rhythm & Blues Singles chart in 1965 with “Never Had It So Good”. Add an entry to the Hot Dance/Disco charts from this record and Ronnie has charted on Billboard’s pop, R&B, dance and country charts in his career. Not bad for an old boy from North Carolina.
