Miles Jaye - Irresistable 1989

Fourth & Broadway Records BRLP 531

Miles Jaye became one of the most popular male vocalists in urban circles during the late '80s. Having learnt violin in New York and learned keyboards and bass in the Air Force, he worked with Phyllis Hyman before Teddy Pendergrass signed him after hearing a demo tape.

Island released his debut album Miles in 1987, and Let's Start Love Over was a sizable hit. He worked on Teddy P's album Joy but it was his next album, Irresistible, that became his most succesful, spawning two more singles Objective (featuring Grover Washington Jnr. on soprano sax) and Heaven. All seven of Jaye's albums are worth checking out but this is my personal favourite. I don't think it ever got a CD release but if I'm wrong then I would like to invest in a copy. Here then, is my vinyl rip.

  2. And, as with Ray Simpson, I took great care not to mention the V****** P*****. Prejudice, it's a terrible thing? :-P

    Check out Strong, his third album, not bad at all.

  4. Only teasing Tosh but for real, some people will not listen when they read about The Village People. I myself, heard Miles Jaye before I found out, hard to believe he was part of that group. This album could not be more different. ;-)
