Spellbound - Gonna keep on lovin you 1984

I discovered it about four months ago. Spellbound was an obscure funk group who released one and only album on Heat records from Ohio in 1985. However this single entitled "Gonna keep on lovin' you" wasn't included on the album. It was released on the same label in 1984.

Mike Calhoun songwriter, guitarist, singer, founding member of the group Kinsman Dazz later Dazz Band collaborated with Spellbound and released this single. Mike Calhoun was composer and producer.

One year later Joe Bendo, Tim LaRose and George Cappellini helped Mike to sign a deal along with lead singer Juan Lively forming the group Voyeur. Mike & Ike Wiley (from the Dazz Band) joined him on the album. They re-recorded this song, the lyrics were changed slightly and included it on the album under the title "Keep on lovin you".

Note: The above posted single is not played in full

Ah, something else. Where are all those radio-producers and DJs from England who think they know all about black music?
