Randy Brown - We Ought To Be Doin´ It - Chocolate City

80s SoulPosted by Martin Mon, April 12, 2010 22:36:34

This is the only 45 that charted for Memphis native Randy Brown, who started singing with local act The Newcomers in the early 70s. The Newcomers recorded for Memphis based Stax records and had some success with their "Pin The Tail On The Donkey". Brown then sat out on a solo career which lasted for almost two decades, recording material for the Truth (a Stax subsidary), Mainstream, Parachute and Chocolate City labels, often working together with Homer Banks and Chuck Brooks to great result. Like on this 1980 single which made it to # 16 on the R & B charts that year and deals with the appropriately named Randy´s favourite theme, carnal desire. Enjoy!
