Ritchie Family – All Night All Right
The Ritchie Family is the name of an American vocal group which was based in Philadelphia. They achieved many hits from the mid 1970s to the early 1980s. The group was created by Jacques Morali (also from the Village Company) and got their name from record producer Ritchie Rome.
Through five line up changes, the Ritchie Family recorded nine albums. While they achieved their highest record sales with the original line up, the third, fourth and fifth line up did very well also. Some of their hits include â€œBrazilâ€, â€œAfrican Queensâ€, â€œQuiet Villageâ€, â€œAmerican Generationâ€, â€œI Feel Disco Goodâ€, â€œWhere Are The Menâ€, â€œPut Your Feet To The Beatâ€, â€œGive Me A Breakâ€, â€œIâ€™ll Never Be Able To Set You Freeâ€, â€œIâ€™ll Do My Bestâ€, â€œWalk With Meâ€ and their final single to date â€œAll Night All Right.â€
After deciding to split, when group owner Jacques Morali discovered he had AIDS, the group continued as Vera Brown and the Rich Girls for one song called â€œToo Much Too Fastâ€ that crashed completely. Vera Brown has reformed The Ritchie Family, with Dodie Draher and Jacqui Smith-Lee, but without further releases.
The Ritchie Family continues to perform the groupsâ€™ hit songs at Disco and Dance music concerts and 80â€™s fesivials around the world.
