Old School


Wow!! I remember this album from the 6th grade..I was young but I liked it. I just love Steve Arrington. Some artist today use his sound..such as Raphael Saadiq

Get your facts straight please.


This album was released in 1983, Arrington did not make a religious conversion until he was in the studio laying down tracks for Positive Power, in 1984. The Reviewer for ITUNES did not get his facts before he reviewed this album! Also, if you know Arrington's musical career, you will be aware that he is not into repeating himself and that with other really creative artists changes and takes new directions because they have to for themselves.

A Rare Gem

This is one my all time favorite albums. This a classic R&B album that few people know about.

About Steve Arrington

Born in Great Lakes, Illinois and raised in Dayton, Ohio, drummer Steve Arrington got his start playing with the Young Mystics. After they disbanded, he moved from Ohio to San Francisco and in 1978 joined the group Slave, which emerged from a union of two former Ohio bands, the Young Mystics and Black Satin Soul. Arrington started as a percussionist and background singer but became lead vocalist on such hits as "Just a Touch of Love," "Watching You," and "Wait for Me." Arrington left Slave in 1982 and formed a new band, Steve Arrington's Hall of Fame. He experienced a religious conversion in 1984 during the recording of Positive Power. Arrington recorded for both Kongflather and Atlantic, enjoying his greatest success with the 1985 LP Dancin' in the Key of Life. It included a Top Ten R&B hit in the title track and Top 20 single with "Feel So Real." By 1986, Arrington began using his shows as forums for his religious beliefs, and in 1991 he left pop music to become a minister and guest musician on various albums. In 2009, Arrington released Pure Thang, a contemporary gospel set. Four years later, he teamed with Dâm-Funk for Higher, issued on the Stones Throw label. The following year brought an anthology, Way Out: 80-84, which drew from his Slave-assisted 1980 solo single, his two Hall of Fame albums, and his personal archive of previously unreleased material. ~ Ron Wynn
