Baby You're The One  

Discovered in a pile of 45's at a warehouse and after a five year long licensing debacle, the deep diggers over at Lotus Land bring us the lost Wynd Chymes classic. The extremely obscure 7" was the bands demo and apparently the catalyst for getting them signed to RCA Victor Records. Oddly, Wynd Chyme's first official release, the "Arrival" LP did not include the track, possibly because it doesn't quite fit in with the more jazzy leanings of the album. But then again it is the song that got them signed in the first place which makes it's absence all the more strange. This monster of a cut is the perfect blend of raw boogie funk with some nice electronic flourishes and an out of control synth bass track. On Repeat:

    This was the Chymes' first release. But it was not what got us the record deal. I am the lead singer on Baby You're The One. It was an audition we asked our manager (Lee King) to setup on a trip back from Japan. At the time, Lee was the VP of the Black Promotors Association. We first signed with Warner Records (same label as Anita Ward, singer of "You Can Ring My Bell"), but never did a release. All major labels were at the audition at Capitol Records Studio. We decided to go with RCA because the Whispers, Shalamar, and Lakeside, were leaving the label, going to Solar Records.
    I personaly did not sign because of problems with 45 year management contract, Lee King asked us to sign to close the deal. The group finally signed a 15 year management contract, which I also refused to sign.
