Album Review

Gary Taylor switched from A&M to Virgin with this late-'80s album. It contained a pair of above-average productions and performances with "Tease Me" and "Love To The Limit." The only thing missing was sustained interest from the audience. The title track cracked the R&B Top 40, but didn't last, and Taylor wasn't able to get the breakout track that might have given him a shot at solo stardom. He continued to crank out singles, with The Manhattans, Mac Band, and Lalah Hathaway all recording his songs after this album.

Customer Reviews


although he does not have a lot of range with vocalization, i really enjoyed this album! his talent is in writing love songs.I understand that he used to write music for the Whispers, so if you love their music, you will like this offering from Gary Taylor.Last i checked, this CD was out of print, so get it before it disappears.....Thanks Morning Crew Music for re-releasing this CD! i have waited about 15 years for it, after i lost the cassette of this smooth operator!

An Underrated King of Quiet Storm

"Tease Me" has to be one of my favorite all-time songs, especially the mix with Gerald Albright playing his horn and The Whispers singing background (which is featured on this CD, HALLELUJAH because that version of the song is so hard to find). I love Taylor because he stays true to himself and has developed his own style. Other albums of his that are hot: Square One, Take Control, and Under The NightLight. The others are worth checking out, too.

Great album!

I have been looking for this album forever! I love Gary Taylor! His voice and his talent have not been recognized by the mainstream as it should. I am just glad he is still around.

Gary Taylor placed only five singles on the Billboard R&B chart from 1983 through 1991. Among serious listeners who favor nuanced and sophisticated R&B, however, he's one of the more beloved producers of quiet storm ballads and mellow grooves. The Los Angeles native wrote songs for Platypus, Executive, and Michael Wycoff before he signed with A&M. As a recording artist, he debuted as G.T. in 1983 with a self-titled album. It was the source of "On the Line," a loose boogie single that reached number...
