Jerry Knight – Overnight Sensation (A&M Disco)

Mostly remembered as a founding member of Raydio along with Ray Parker, Jr., responsible for the vocals on ‘Jack And Jill’, Jerry Knight released three solo albums as a solo artist.
His biggest success would be this funky joint produced by David Kershenbaum back in 1980 along with Patrick Moten on synths. Knight would get back to some higher status with session drummer Ollie E.Brown under the Ollie & Jerry guise with the famous ‘There’s No Stoppin’ from the ‘Breakin” OST 4 years later…

The conditional is used here due to unconfirmed infos regarding Knight‘s death back in 1997…
