WOW................. a must have!!!!!

"Webster Lewis is one of those rare artists whose albums all have something really worthwhile contained within each albums musical walls. His two albums are ones that are 'lesser sought after' than, say, 'Touch My Love' or 'Let Me Be The One', but are fine releases in their own right.

'8 For The 80's' actually came out in 1979! I guess Webster was looking forward to the new decade with optimism. Little did he know that we were about to have The Maggie and Ronnie Show about to ruin our lives / jobs etc......!! This album was produced by Webster in collaboration with Herbie Hancock. At the time I wanted to get this set for the majestic 'The Love You Give To Me', with it's fine female vocal and Herbie Hancocks fine keyboard playing, however, that is not the only gem inset here. The track 'Give Me Some Emotion' is a fine mid-tempo number that Webster lent to Merry Clayton who recorded it and titled her 1980 album, 'Emotion', after it, additionally. The other track of note here is the fime 'Heavenly' sung by the vastly underrated D.J.Rogers. Great set, on Epic by the way."
A classic album by a great Artist

"Webster Lewis was one who was ahead of his time. This album along with his 3 other Sony Albums will be released on Expansion records in April 2008."
