Gayle Adams - Love Fever

Gayle Adams first broke on the scene in 1980 with the release of her self titled debut. In 1981, she stirred dancefloors with the LP "Love Fever", which included today's post.

The 12" single of "Love Fever" preceded the album. With it's urban funk appeal, it quickly shot up the club charts. It also faired well on the Urban Chart reaching #24.

Another song from her sophomore effort, Baby I Need Your Loving, received airplay at the clubs, yet never charted. Other than this song, no other song charted. With disco in a turmoil in the early 80's and her label, Prelude, at a loss on how to handle her success, she was forced out of what could have been a more successful career.
