Hey, Affectionandos...You're My Afro-disiac!!!

Another shmoove cut from Dennis Edwards,' "Don't Look Any Further":

In case some of you aren't aware of Dennis' provenance, (and you may have mixed feelings on this), but he's the cat who took over for David Ruffin in The Temptations, (the first non-original member to join the group) and ushered them through their 'psychedelic, funk, and disco' era, with hits such as 'Cloud 9' and 'Papa Was a Rollin' Stone':

Enjoy that trademark snarling gospel-hewn vocal Dennis brangs!

Interested in Dennis 'early years?'
Yes sir, long before he grabbed a mouthful of Big League Chew and teamed up with Siedah Garrett to create soul duet history, check out my man attempting to reach for that Motown sound with this 1967 rarity:

Or, how's about checking out Dennis all the way in the wee back with The Contours!!!

EXTRY! EXTRY! Where the hell is Dennis now!? This eye done spy Brotha' D in 2008, in his warm-up's, warmin' it UP, in this studio sesh with self-described soul renaissance man, Marshall Titus, who apparently is writing/producing Dennis' COMEBACK ALBUM!! (p.s. this vid is sooo up my alley...especially poignant is the moment at 4:54):

The question we all have at this point is, "who in sweet Moses hell be Marshall Titus, and would I want him 'marshaling' Dennis Edwards' comeback?!"
Look at these clips, and you be the judge...
First, Titus does his shmoove best shmexy-man-boy-rub-a-dub-in-da-tubby-tub (with cinematography like a neo-soul 'Blair Witch Project'). Oooo-weee:

But don't ax me...why don't we let the man make the pitch himself:

Before the awkwardly sculpted eyebrows, 1986 perhaps bringeth Titus his greatest career highlight, singing Bette Midler's "Wind Beneath My Wings," under the magic parasol of Ed McMahon's Star Search - the ship that launched or sunk a thousand careers...

Nonetheless, Titus and whatever other 'powers that be,' RELEASE THAT NEW DENNIS!!! I will buy!!!


  1. Denis Edwards 101. Thanks for lesson teach! His videos are so good!

  2. I approve of mr. titus. judging from the star search video and that touch (ah-ooo) he recommends in the studio. man seems to know what he's talking about. done his homework, paid his dues. lets hear the record!

  3. I scream, you scream, we all scream for Dennis' new reckid! Bust that shit out!
