The 1995 release of Dad And Son paired two legends of soul music, singer and producer Gerald LeVert (b. 13 July 1966, Cleveland, Ohio, USA, d. 10 November 2006, Cleveland, Ohio, USA) and his dad Eddie, lead vocalist and founding person in the O’Jays. The record featured a combined mix of first songs created expressly with the objective with the duo and an array of cover variations, including many O’Jays remakes. Made by Gerald and Tony Nicholas, a co-writer in the task who had proved helpful thoroughly with Gerald before, the record was prompted by demands from fans following the dad and son group had performed jointly in concert on many events. With 10 yellow metal and four platinum albums between them, it had been a partnership destined to attract fans of spirit and R&B. The set had first documented a duet, “Baby RETAIN Me”, for Gerald’s 1991 debut single album, Private Range. It reached the very best of the united states R&B singles graph in January 1992. As well as the customary associated promotional tour for Dad And Boy, the duo also announced information on a new nationwide scholarship finance overseen by Eddie’s 100 Dark Men collective.
