Yahoo LAUNCHCAST song of the day
Song:(Every Time I Look Around) Back In Love Again
L.T.D. was a very popular funk/R & B group of the mid 70s. Back In Love Again was their biggest hit. The group started in 1968 with keyboardist Jimmie Davis & bassist Abraham Miller. Both guys were in Sam & Dave's band. They recruited guitarist Johnny McGhee and several horn players but the key recruit was vocalist Jeffrey Osborne along with his brother Billy on keyboards. The group signed with A & M in 1974. They were doing well on the R & B charts but the 1977 album Something To Love included the top five pop hit Back In Love Again. The song was produced by legendary Philly Soul producer Bobby Martin and has a great lead vocal by Jeffrey Osborne. L.T.D. continued until Jeffrey Osborne left in 1981 for a solo career. And he had a very good solo run that I may talk about some other time. The group disbanded but McGhee reformed a new version in 1999. The song Back In Love Again experienced a revival in 2001 when gospel girl group Trin-i-tee 5:7 used it as the basis of their smash Put Your Hands. Here's L.T.D. performing Back In Love Again on Soul Train in 1977.
