Sylvester's Best L.P. of the 80's!

"This cd which is released on the Canadian label Unidisc was originally released (on L.P.) on the Megatone label in 1982. Electronic synthesizer master Patrick Cowley (who died in the early 80's) was an innovator in this hi-nrg electronic sound (as was Giorgio Moroder in the 70's) and both Sylvester and Cowley make the perfect combination. Sylvester with his gospel high searing vocals and Cowley's melodic synthesizers. This cd includes all the hits (Do you wanna Funk, Don't Stop and Be with You) plus the remix versions, some of which were only available as import 12" records from Europe. The sound quality is nothing less than superb. If you enjoyed hi-nrg music from the 80's such as Miquel Brown, Hazel Dean, The Flirtations, Bobby O, Lime, etc. then you'll love this disc. Highly Recommended!"
Sylvester - All I need 1982

"It was Originally released late 1982 under the name "All I need " by the San Francisco dance label "Megatone" which was owned by legendary (revolutionary) Synth dance producer Patrick Cowley. Songs where written and produced by James Tip Wirrick who also performed everything. The song "Do you Wanna Funk" which is written and produced by Cowley was added to the album becuase it had become a hit. In general, in this album you get an energetic yet elegant synth Hi-Nrg backround ...all very well arranged with moog solos...and over it you get an extremely emotional and heart pouring melody song by sylvester in falsetto ..plus a near gospel chant backing vocals apear featering big voices like Martha Wash/ Daryl Coley/ Jeanie Tracie. I think its Sylvester's best album and one of 80's best albums to be ignored by the mass media."
