This one takes me right back to my senior year of high school. Autumn of ’78, to be precise.
R&B music made you feel so good back then. “Livin’ It Up,” recorded 30 years ago, still sounds fresh as a daisy.
Bell & James were a one-hit wonder as recording artists. But they had a career as Philly songwriters behind them. (Leroy Bell’s uncle was the legendary producer Thom Bell.)
Bell & James wrote “Mama Can’t Buy You Love,” which was a Top-10 hit for Elton John (and produced by Thom Bell).
Anyway... cheers to the Vinyl Morpher for uploading this:
