Wanda Walden - Searchin' for love 1981 Lp

I wouldn't be able not to present this album. As I remember, I bought this album probably in 1995 in Athens. Immediately I recorded on cassette two songs from this album entitled "Searchin for love" and "Wanna love tonite". For some weeks I have been hearing this cassette every day. Outstanding songs.
In fact Wanda Walden was an unknown singer before this album. Most people believe that Wanda is sister of Narada Michael Walden. However, I read somewhere that she's the wife of Narada's brother.
Narada was the producer on the album entitled "Searchin for love" which was released in 1981 on Elektra Records.

Narada Michael Walden on drums and percussion, Randy Jackson on bass, Bob Castell on guitar, Frank Martin on keyboards and synthesizers, Mark Russo all saxophone solos. String arrangements by Michael Gibbs and Frank Martin. Produced and arranged by Narada.

Searchin for love: Music by Narada and lyrics by Narada and Allee Willis. Vocals by Wanda and Narada.

Wanna love you tonite: Music and lyrics by Ronnie Brown.

Wanda Walden after of this album released a single "I must be dreamin" on the same label in 1982. She collaborated with Randy Jackson. Wanda Walden and Randy Jackson wrote this song. Randy was also the producer.

She's now a voice teacher in Florida. I'm one of her students. She's an amazing person. You have good taste in music.
