  1. I can't remember who it was and can't find my album. Anybody?

  3. Thanks, Brad! You just won me a six-pack. I'm sitting here with a know it all buddy of mine who claims it was Cleveland Eaton.

    You can also check out the live version, without Ramsey, by EWF on "Gratitude", IMO one of the best live albums yet.

    Lewis collaborated with EWF back then, they basically revived his career at the time. Other stuff of interest from that period with the EWF touch would be the Emotions, Deniece Williams (EWF all over these productions) and a group called Pockets that featured Gary Grainger. Lots of excellent bass work.
