Platinum Hook: Watching You

Platinum Hook: Watching You
Title: Watching You
Label: Funky Town Grooves

Digitally remastered edition of this 1983 mini album from the funk band. Originally The Soul Dukes, after vocalist Tina Stanford joined the band in 1976, the band changed their name to Platinum Hook. The Soul Dukes were led by vocalist and percussionist Stephen Daniels. Early members were Robin Corley, Victor Jones, Bobby Douglas and Glenn Wallace. It was after Tina joined the band that they secured a recording contract with Motown. After leaving Motown they signed with RCA and released an EP, Watching You. Platinum Hook's horn section compared to that of Earth, Wind and Fire and the vocalists and rhythm section were top notch. The band's ability as musicians guaranteed they always had work, and they were on the bill with such greats as The Commodores, Kool and the Gang, Sister Sledge (for whom they also played back-up) and many others. Platinum Hook had a residency at The Cellar club in New York City that lasted from 1977 to 1984. When not touring, they could be found blowing the roof off of the packed nightclub.
