Colonel Abrams

Detroit-born vocalist Colonel Abrams (his actual name) enjoyed moderate success in the late '80s, singing in a harsh, terse soul style while fitting his voice into a garage and house setting. Abrams was in the group Conservative Manor with his brother Morris in the late '60s, then sang lead vocals for 94 East in 1976. Their roster included Prince on guitar. Abrams later joined Surprise Package, a New Jersey group. He scored a mild hit in 1984 with the ballad "Leave the Message Behind the Door" for New York's Streetwise Records. The follow-up, "Music Is the Answer," was an international dance hit and earned him a deal with MCA in 1985. He had more success with the singles "Trapped," "I'm Not Gonna Let You," and "How Soon We Forget" in the late '80s, and also recorded a pair of LPs. Abrams' single "Bad Timing" was produced by Cameo's Larry Blackmon for the independent Horrus label in 1990. ~ Ron Wynn, Rovi

How can your only album be best of? Don't you have to put out a few before you can compile best of? Any way "should I listen what you say or listen what your folks say its a tough decision to make. I dont really want to lose you but I dont want your folks to turn me over to the hands of the law I guess they think that Im not good enough for you...
