PROFILE: The late Bert Robinson was one of the shining lights of late 80s soul, managing the divide between the classic soul of previous decades with a new musical style in r&b ahead of 90s new jack swing.
Championed by One Way featuring Al Hudson, Bert Robison was recognized locally in Detroit by winning a TV talent show on his vocal prowess, then taken to Capitol Records the year Al Hudson and his partners started a production company and arrived at the same label.
“Occupy My Love” was the lead single and a dance hit from the album while songs inclusing “I Can’t let You Go” were widely embraced by the UK soul scene.
Copies of the previously Capitol issued American CD of this album dried up some years ago and exchanges hands for small fortunes on the collectors scene. For those who enjoyed the music embraced by artists such as Luther Vandross, Teddy Pendergrass, Keith Washington and Miles Jaye during the mid to late 80s period, this album is essential.
