I'm checking out, some SMZ (Silver Mt. Zion)Cool. Any good?
I was a fan, of Living Color...and this album; as well, as the EP Biscuits (Vernon Reid's playing, on Burning of the Midnight Lamp alone...is worth the price of admission).Killer disc. Well recorded as well.
What About Me? is the sixteenth studio album by Kenny Rogers, released in 1984.
The album's title track, "What About Me?", is sung in trio with R&B singer James Ingram and Rogers' former New Christy Minstrels bandmate turned solo star Kim Carnes, which is a love song that reached number one on the AC charts and was also a pop and country hit, giving co-writer Richard Marx his first number one hit as a writer.
The album also includes "Two Hearts, One Love" by Byron Hill, "The Stranger", "The Night Goes On" (a R&B influenced ballad), and "Crazy" - a song Rogers co-wrote with Richard Marx that also charted and gave Rogers yet another number-one hit and Marx his second number one hit as a writer.
Sheila E. – percussion
Richard Marx – backing vocals
Kenny Rogers II – backing vocals (from his marriage to Margo Anderson)
Rogers received three Grammy Awards and recognition for lifetime achievement from the Country Music Association. He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2013.
On March 20, 2020, Rogers died under hospice care at his home in Sandy Springs, Georgia.
Excellent! Vernon Reid would go on to play more Jazz themed music.I was a fan, of Living Color...and this album; as well, as the EP Biscuits (Vernon Reid's playing, on Burning of the Midnight Lamp alone...is worth the price of admission).
But only liked, Love Rears Its Ugly Head from the follow-up, Time's Up.
And...I don't think, the band...with it's sampling, 80s Glam, and heavy guitar mix; has aged very well. Still...some gems.
