Polydor Records WINCD 11

Marva Hicks was one of the Eighties Ladies, committed on plastic back in '81. Cutting her teeth as a gospel singer in Petersburg, Virginia, she later worked in theatre as an actress in Washington, D.C. After the Eighties Ladies split, she recorded 'Looking Over My Shoulder' for Infinity Records which folded. Marva wound up singing in Lena Horne's Broadway show which was how she met Stevie Wonder in London. She toured with him and sang background vocals on his 'Characters' album.

She signed with Polydor in the late '80's and released her debut album 'Marva Hicks' in 1991. 'I Got You Where I Want' was the first single from the album. A lovely shuffling, SIIS style beat over strings, with the Extended Club Mix sporting a nice acappella intro and a funky drummer breakdown. A beautiful slice of early nineties street soul.
