"Kathy Sledge is such a wonderful singer, it amazes me that she hasn't released more solo albums. She has such a great history of songs with Sister Sledge that I never could pick a favorite. Probably because I just love her voice. This album called "HEART" is a great solo album and has dance songs as well as ballads, and she co-wrote 2 of the songs, one with her husband. Here is a list for those who would like to know her solo history without Sister Sledge:
1. 1983- She sings a duet with Stacy Lattisaw on Stacy's album called
"SIXTEEN". The name of the song is "WHAT'S SO HOT 'BOUT BAD BOYS?".
2. 1989- On the soundtrack- "LAMBADA: SET THE NIGHT ON FIRE", Kathy
sings a song called "LAMBADA DANCIN'".
3. 1992- Kathy releases her first and only (so far) solo album called
"HEART". 3 singles come off the album- "TAKE ME BACK TO LOVE",
"ALL OF MY LOVE" and "HEART".
4. 1994- Hiroshi Fujiwara- NOTHING MUCH BETTER TO DO cd
Has original versions of Kathy Sledge singing- "Let My Love Shine",
and the duet of her & Julien Brookes- "A Song For Two".
4. 1995- She released a cd single- a club song called "ANOTHER DAY",
which she co-wrote.
Also in 1995, she released a cd single- a club version of a
Stevie Wonder song called "ANOTHER STAR". The song is originally
from Stevie's 1976 album "SONGS IN THE KEY OF LIFE".
5. 1997- Robert Miles released a cd single called "FREEDOM" featuring
Kathy Sledge. The song is from Robert's album "23am".
6. 1998- K-klass puts out an album called "K2" and it has two songs
that feature Kathy Sledge on vocals- "KNOCKING DOWN THE WALLS"
and "GIVE IT UP".
7. 1999- A cd single called "READY" is released by King Britt
Presents SCUBA featuring Kathy Sledge.
8. 2000- Hiroshi Fujiwara released his cd called REMIXES and 2 songs
feature Kathy Sledge on lead vocal- "LET MY LOVE SHINE" and "A SONG
FOR TWO" (a duet with Julien Brookes)- remixes of the 1994 original
versions. *This cd comes in a slipcase and on the outside of the slipcase
it correctly states that Phoebe Snow sings lead on the song "MY EMOTION"-
inside the slipcase it incorrectly states Kathy Sledge sings lead on it.
Also- on the outside of the slipcase it incorrectly states
that Takashi Hamazaki sings lead on "A SONG FOR TWO", when in
fact it is a duet with Kathy Sledge & Julien Brookes.
9. 2001- A cd single called "RISING" is released by King Britt
Presents Sylk 130 Featuring Kathy Sledge.
So there you go. You could compile all these songs not on the "HEART"
album and you would have a second solo album. Enjoy.
Exceptional and hard to find!
