Carmen Electra Sings A Prince Ballad: Dennis Edwards, Dokken, and Carmen Electra

"ALL THAT"    CARMEN ELECTRA
Fittingly after being discovered by Prince, he gave Tara Patrick her famous new moniker, Carmen Electra.  An accomplished dancer, Prince wrote and produced her short-lived music career including this steamy sex ballad.  Vocals are breathy and the arrangement is totally Prince, but it's a hidden gem.   Trapped on a desert island, Carmen Electra would be on my short list of all-time favorites!
                      

"DON'T LOOK ANY FURTHER"  DENNIS EDWARDS
One of the legends of Motown, Dennis Edwards replaced an icon, David Ruffin as the new lead singer of the Temptations.   His amazing baritone voice brought more of a Gospel-tinged sound to the band.   This song is from his debut solo CD and features Siedah Garrett, most famous for her duet "I Just Can't Stop Loving You" with Michael Jackson.

"IN MY DREAMS"   DOKKEN
Vintage MTV, Headbanger's Ball, the Daily Countdown, Dokken epitomizes the Hair Band era.   Don Dokken on vocals and guitar virtuoso George Lynch struck gold with their albums, Tooth & Nail and Under Lock And Key.   Like most of the bands of the era, they broke up after a messy argument.   Lynch formed Lynch Mob, Don Dokken went solo and their careers were never the same.

Dokken is great. Look up "Alone Again" - one of the best power ballads of the 80's. Thank you SO MUCH for sharing comments!!!
