Sylvester- Sylvester (1977 ) ( Fantasy F- 9531)

Harvey Fuqua - producer of this record- ( known for being part ofMotown and producing Marvin Gay) discovered Sylvester when he went to a nightclub called 'the Palms' because Martha Wash had asked him to come over and see her singing back up for Sylvester. Not a disco album ... this is more like an upbeat- frenetic soul /blues / rock and roll album. Feauters lots of Gospel type back ground vocals By the Two Tons of Fun ( Martha Wash & Izora Armstead- Rhodes both were in a gospel group called News of the World). Theres also a lot of Brass & a string section Almost all original compositions. Sylvester starts writting songs with Tip Wirrick (his guitar player) which will be his main songwriter for the rest of his/her career.
