After 7 - Can't Stop 1990

Virgin Records America VUST 31

Originating from Indiana in 1988, After 7 have LA Face roots with Kevon and Melvin Edmonds, who are brothers of Kenny 'Babyface' Edmonds and Keith Mitchell, who is Antonio 'L.A.' Reid's cousin. They were huge in the US, very polished and soulful, with great vocal range. They were not as well known in the UK but still managed to make a dent.

Can't Stop was probably their most successful release, produced and mixed by L.A. & Face but here remixed by Tim Lever & Mike Percy for One World Productions. Lever and Percy originated in the British pop group Dead Or Alive but managed to later garner credibility as a production team on the UK soul scene between '89-'94. After working with some of the UK's finest soul talent they then returned to their roots writing and producing for acts such as S Club 7 under the name of Steelworks. Strange but true?

  3. I had this maxi-single when I was in junior high school - this brings back great memories, especially since I've lost this.

    Do you have the unreleased hip hop remix of Keith Sweat's "Why Me Baby"? Also known as Part 2 from google searches.

    thanks for sharing!

  4. Sorry Johnathan,

    I have a few Keith Sweat 12"s around but not that one. I'll put the others up when I get the chance. ;-)
