Commodores - Painted picture 1982


I love this track. Not rare but very good. It is the first single without Lionel Richie and Thomas McClary. After the album "In the pocket" 1981, Lionel Richie left. His last single with The Commodores was "Why you wanna try me". Next year, Thomas McClary also left the group to pursue a solo career, recording one self-titled album for Motown. Motown released a Commodores collection entitled "All the great hits" to buy some time that included two new songs. "Painted picture"(featuring co-writer Harold Hudson singing and playing most of the instruments) and "Reach high" (sung by Kevin Smith, a Montgomery, Alabama native who has chosen at an Atlanta audition as the first, short-lived replacement for Lionel Richie). You can enjoy the track "painted picture" 1982 R&B#21 and Pop#25.
