You can take a black guy to Nashville from right out of the cotton fields with bib overalls, and they will call him R&B. You can take a white guy in a pin-stripe suit who’s never seen a cotton field, and they will call him country. ~ O. B. McClinton

Fun fact: Stacy was offered a song that later became a massive hit for another artist.That song is “Ring My Bell” by Anita Ward.The song was originally intended for Stacy,but it had different lyrics about young teens hanging out on a party line.For whatever reason,Stacy passed on it,the lyrics were re-written to be more “sexier”,Anita recorded it and it became one of the biggest disco hits of 1979.

I have their debut album.I remember buying it mainly because of the first single "The Best Of Me" but I found several other great tunes too.There's an excellent slow jam called "Quiet Guy" plus the aforementioned duet with Shanice "This Time".It's a very good,underrated album from the late 80s.

I remember that song... But "Missing You"--her tribute to Marvin Gaye-- was the one Diana poured her heart into... https://youtu.be/Bf4wU94hES4
