Bama - Touch Me When We're Dancing 1979 Lp

I saw it for the first time on ebay several years ago. However I had the opportunity to buy this record in Athens. In fact this album is not soul. It was influenced from AOR and pop music.
Bama was a studio group from Muscle Shoals, Alabama. The members of the group were Terry Skinner, Ken Bell and Jerry Lee Wallace. All of theses guys were songwriters on Welk Music Group. They released one and only album in 1979 on RCA/Free Flight Records. It was recorded at East Avalon Recorders, Inc, Muscle Shoals, Alabama. The self titled song "Touch Me When We're Dancing" was released as a single on the same label. The same song was also recorded by Carpenters in 1981.
The album was produced by Jim Vienneau and Bama. I have chosen two songs. The first song was named "Summer Nights (Are Made For Making Love)" and the other "Touch Me When We're Dancing". Both songs were penned by themselves.

I want to mention that the members of the group Bama penned several songs for other artists or bands especially in country music.
