Philly soul singer/songwriter/producer Theodore Life's second album, Somethin’ That You Do to Me Keeps Turnin' On wasn't as rock-oriented as his first album, That's Life, but it was no less eclectic. T-Life's frequent collaborator George Andrews is on hand to supply his usual dazzling arrangements. The pumping, punchy horn-laced title track “Somethin’that you do to” me was a dance hit and the extended (not-available-to-retail) 12” version became a post-release collectible. Saxophonist Sam Peake weaves through the low-toned funky, atmospheric “Smokin'.” “Don't Let This Be the Last Time” has player piano, almost show tune-like quality to it. The reggae-ish “Let Him Go” has beautiful, bombastic horns.The lovely, crystalline ballad “Don't Wanna Be Lonely” has an exotic, oriental flavor. “Wouldn't You Know” is funky while having striking vocal counterpoint.
Process & the Doo Rags started when Rick James enlisted his back-up singer James “Bunty” Hawkins (aka Process), the brother of the funk legend’s guitarist and musical director Kenny Hawkins. He wanted to begin preparing some of his male backup singers to form a stand-alone act, much like the Mary Jane Girls. James and Kenny picked out Stacey “Wave” Lattimore, Henry “Gumps” Graham, Dennis “Shorty” Andrews and Michael “Smooth” Gibson and Process and the Doo Rags were born. The group was almost a quartet. Over 400 singers auditioned for the group and Lattimore, Graham and Gibson were picked to join the brothers Hawkins. Then Andrews asked for a late audition. “I'm a little guy," Andrews said at the time. “But I have a big voice." And he was in.*Re-release-date: 15-4-2016
