Another Question Re: Morris Day Unsung

Ricky "Freeze" Smith- been with the band for almost 30 yrs.

*

Does anyone know his backstory? Specifically, is he another one, like A. O'Neal and Sonny T. from the NPG, that had been on the Minneapolis scene from back in the day but took an unusually long time to get put on the scene? I'm curious as, in watching Morris' Unsung, he seemed to know a lot about the early pre-Time days even though he wasn't in the line up.

According to this webpage, Mr. Smith was working with Morris Day already in the mid-80s:

Before that, he was involved with The Sylvers and Solar Records...

Check also the credit list here:

His work on Morris’ “Color of Success” album, and a Rocky Robbins album, both released in 1985, seem to be his first documented associations with the MPLS music scene...
