I Want Your Lovin'  

Curtis Hairston was a prolific singer/song writer and one of my favorite male vocalist from the 80's . I was first hooked when I heard his vocals on The BB&Q Band's LP "Genie" where he lent his voice on the smooth jam "Dreamer" as well as some other background vocals on that album. He caught his break with the 1983 jam "I Want You (All Tonight)" released on Pretty Pearl Records and he followed up that success with "I Want Your Lovin" in 1985. Both of his tracks are pretty slamming but I prefer the '85 single more so I thought it would be a great tune to share. In typical 80's fashion it is what I guess you would call a "cheesy" love song but it never fails to get people on the floor. I also highly recommend checking out the next level music video he did for this song, it is such a beast!

And since I have been lagging on the posts, here is an excellent mix from the LA Funk Lord and Funkmosphere resident Eddy Funkster. This mix is all 45's and full of records you wish you had! I had the track list written down somewhere but I have since lost it but I will put in the comments once I get it together.

    Curtis was a dear friend of mine who is missed sorely. He was an underrated talent whose smooth voice was on more tracks than people realize. Miss u my friend:(

    Wow! I danced to this many times at Radio London Soul Nights Out at the Hammersmith Palais! I was a massive fan in the 80's and was genuinely saddened at his death. An awesome soul voice, much missed.
