Eighties Ladies are vocal ensemble comprised of Denie Corbett, Marva Hicks, Susan Beaubian, Sylvia Striplin and Vivian Prince. The group are best known for "Turned On To You", one of the most iconic 'rare groove' tracks from the early 80s. It was sampled numerous times in the 90s, most notably by A Tribe Called Quest ("Buttter-Hip Hop Mix"), and more recently bu Nujabes featuring C.L. Smooth ("Sky Is Falling"). An exclusive edit was recently reissued by Expansion on 7” alongside the group’s 1980 album “Ladies Of The Eighties”, but the appetite remains for the full length version of “Turned On To You” on 12” single.
In 1982 and of course Sylvia recorded a solo project “Give Me Your Love” (also reissued by Expansion) for Uno Melodic. As Eighties Ladies they are best known for “Turned On To You”.
