Miss Gwen

Gwen Guthrie was one of the most unique singers to come out of the late 70's/80's. This lp has a great mix of R+B dance and stunning ballads. It's a shame that Island/Def Jam
has never released any of her lp's on cd in the U.S.


Guess this is when she fell off but her padlock, seventh heaven, and Original Rent tracks could never be beat oh also forgot hopscotch she will be missed by the hardcore 80’s fans like me.


Born: 1950 in Newark, NJ

Genre: R&B/Soul

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s

Gwen Guthrie is best known for her number one R&B single "Ain't Nothin' Goin' on But the Rent," a popular self-written bouncer. A prolific songwriter and a good pianist, she also penned "Supernatural Thing" for Ben E. King and "This Time I'll Be Sweeter" for Martha Reeves, which was later popularized by Angela Bofill and Issac Hayes. In all, Guthrie logged approximately 50 compositions, and many thought Guthrie and songwriting partner Patrick Grant had the potential to become another Ashford & Simpson....
