Change – Turn On Your Radio (1985) – Lp
Change was an Italian-American post-disco group formed in Bologna, Italy, in 1979 by businessman and executive producer Jacques Fred Petrus (1949–1986) and Mauro Malavasi (1957). They were heavily influenced by legendary disco band Chic.
Title: Turn On Your Radio
Label: CNR Records
The once-dominant disco group Change enjoyed its final hit with this 1985 album. The lineup had changed radically from the days when Luther Vandross or James Robinson were providing exciting, soulful leads. The leads throughout this session, even on the lone successful single, “Let’s Go Together,” were more efficient than distinctive. The group’s founder, Jacques Fred Petrus, returned to the production helm and recycled the arrangements that once made the group a major act.
“Turn on Your Radio” includes the singles “Let’s Go Together”, “Examination” (in Italy only), “Oh What A Feeling” and “Mutual Attraction”.
“Turn on Your Radio” was the band’s commercial low point, but had not been intended as the act’s final release. The formal end came after the death of Petrus in 1986.
