"This is Dayton's fourth album from 83. The group started with a rather peace full and less impressive debut in 81 with no real hits (included "Cutie pie" and "One day or another"). After that they followed up with a much more successful and funkier 82 album (which can be bought here too, included funky "Hot fun in the summertime" and the mega bomb "We can't miss"!!) and then released this one the year after on Capitol. This is a superb, classic and most over-looked album, not only for the smash hit "The sound of music" (for which you can buy the entire album), but also for the over-all quality of the entire set. The album also includes playfully "Out to night" and one of the most impressive mid tempo tracks for a long time in the sensitive "Promise me", a track that makes you feel pure joy in the deepest place of your heart. The music is sweet, well performed, joyfully, easy listening and over all packed with expressed love to the music. The album is simply highly recommended for anyone that likes R&B/popfunk from the early 80's in particular and good music in general.
Dayton did release a fourth album but then their saga was done.
Yes, [amount]$ is expensive, but it's definitely worth any cent!"

"Fantastic catchy song, after a 1000 times I'm not bored listening to it. It makes me happy, just like other artists like Chic, Cameo, Bootsy Collins. Ciao"
One that got overlooked

"I pick this tape up when I lived in Ohio 1982 I believe. I must say its one of the best compulations of pure R/B songs ever heard. The sound of music the only song I heard on the ohio airways is just one of the great songs on this album that got overlooked. My favorite is promise me. If this group had good managers and distributor this album and another album that I had of theirs with a remake of Sly and the Family Stones song hot fun in the summertime, and a song that I played the grooves off off call you should be dancing with me, would have certainly went double platinum. But instead they drifted away like another group called Change and now all we have left is; why such a great soulful albums did not get the air play it justly deserve. I remember this album and it to me was one of the best I have ever heard."
