The Deele- Eyes Of A Stranger


With group members Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds and Antoine "L.A." Reid's popularity increasing, and their productions skills in demand, it was inevitable that this would be the final album by the urban funk ensemble. The LP featured the very credible "Two Occasions"; as Dee gives a depiction of the song through some metaphoric verses, Babyface tenderly intercedes on the pre-hook in support of Dee's lyric. This is the only song on the album that features Babyface on lead. In spite of its superb arrangement and production, the quiet-storm classic peaked at number four after 24 healthy weeks on the charts even though it was worthy of a number-one ranking. The follow-up single, "Shoot 'em Up Movies," has an arrangement that is reminiscent of the golden doo wop era. The creatively composed number peaked at number ten inside of 15 weeks. ~ Craig Lytle, All Music Guide

The Deele had some really good songs in their day. I always wondered why they had Boy George holding a fan on the album cover though. (just kidding folks)

Don't forget "Shoot'em Up Movies." That was one of my personal favs of theirs. Gets constant play on iPod right now!

I'm hearing this album for the first time after I heard MF Doom sampling "Shoot 'Em Up Movies" in his song Red and Gold.

Thanks for uploading, especially for us curious folks out there! :)
