Shalamar's performing Friends on UK T.

The album of the same title Friends was also a big seller in the UK in 1982 crossing the genres of pop, disco and soul. She rejoined with Hewett and Daniel, plus LL Cool J, on Babyface's 1996 million-selling single "This Is for the Lover in You"; a cover of a hit single from Shalamar's 1980 album Three for Love

For other uses, see Shalimar. The album itself moved Shalamar into a more new wave/synthpop direction, with rock guitars to the fore. But The Look generally was not the success that Friends had been the previous year. With a mid 1980s line-up change, adding Micki Free and Delisa Davis, Shalamar returned to the US Top 20 in 1984 with "Dancing in the Sheets" (1984) from the Footloose soundtrack In 1985, Kool & the Gang, Midnight Star, Shalamar and Klymaxx perf.

Although the group had been around since the late '70s, Shalamar didn't really gel until vocalist Howard Hewett joined original members Jeffrey Daniel and Jody Watley. While Friends' predecessor, Three for Love, offered more hits, Friends is a sometimes-cautious though fulfilling continuation of the style. The biggest hit and leadoff track, "A Night to Remember," successfully mixes a subtle flash and a bittersweet melody that made the track an instant classic

Shalamar: Friends Their first album since WEA started distributing Solar is also their first album since the one they wrote themselves failed to go top one-hundred. And it's also safe and sorry: Leon Sylvers and cohorts in complete control. Sure they'll score their ghettoized best-sellers, maybe even sell their allotted five hundred thou. But there'll be no reason to cry foul when that's all they do. B
