Curtis Blandon

Biography

Most widely known for his outstanding Northern spirit perennial “Over time,” vocalist and songwriter Curtis Blandon was created and raised in Birmingham, AL. The merchandise of the musical family members — his old sibling Richard was an associate of doo wop hitmakers the Dubs — Blandon also went to senior high school alongside upcoming Motown performers Eddie Kendricks and Shorty Longer. He still left Birmingham in 1960, briefly settling in Chicago before shifting to NEW YORK, where Richard presented him to manufacturer and publisher Teddy Powell. You start with the Fabulons’ “This is actually the End,” Blandon marketed several his music to Powell before changing Joe Duncan within the doo wop quartet the Vocaleers; then composed “Cootie Snap,” his debut work using the group, but became therefore annoyed by Atlantic Information’ insufficient promotional force that he still left the Vocaleers immediately after. After documenting the 1963 single singles “Spirit” and “Mr. Creativity,” the next July Blandon was drafted in to the U.S. Military, portion a two-year tour in Germany; upon time for NY, he documented the one “I WANT You” for Capitol’s Tower subsidiary. A following cope with Buddah Information proceeded to go nowhere, and Blandon briefly joined up with a reconstituted Dubs lineup on tour, showing up on the LP The Dubs Meet up with the Shells; finally, in 1972 he agreed upon to Wand, planing a trip to Chicago for the Gene Chandler-produced periods that would produce “Over time.” A buoyant, up-tempo spirit tune notable because of its regal brass agreement and Blandon’s searing vocals, the one was a popular of famous R&B DJ Frankie Crocker and loved significant regional achievement, but didn’t remove nationally. A disheartened Blandon at that time turned almost specifically to songwriting, authoring some disco anthems. Especially, he published three tunes — “Let’s Create a Offer,” “STILL DO IT,” and “Let’s HAVE SEX” — included on the 1976 Gloria Gaynor recording I’ve Got You. “Over time” is definitely today deservedly included on a variety of Northern spirit compilations.
