LOVE WON’T LET ME WAIT

From SOUL 2

“Love Won’t Let Me Wait” is a gorgeous soul ballad co-written in the first half of the seventies by female songwriter/musician Vinnie Barrett and noted songwriter/producer Bobbi Eli. Eli was a founding member of the popular Philly Soul combo, MFSB (Mother Father Sister Brother). “Love Won’t Let Me Wait” was originally sung by Major Harris (1947-2012), a former member of The Delfonics, on his 1974 debut solo album My Way.

Produced by David Foster, Bi-Coastal, with its smooth, refined content, was considered one of the seminal records of the west coast/pop genre. Foster and Allen co-wrote the bulk of the album. They delivered a string of pop masterpieces including the Billboard’s Hot 100 entry “Fly Away.”

COTTAGE FOR SALE

From UNFORGETTABLE (single)

Written by Larry Conley Music by Willard Robinson

“Unforgettable,” was made into a virtual duet between songbird Natalie Cole (1950-2015) and her legendary dad, Nat “King” Cole (1919-1965) with the wizardry of new technology way after Nat “King” Cole’s death.

A LOVE THAT WILL LAST

From MOOD

Written by David Foster & Linda Thompson

In the new millennium, David Foster kept having huge success with his platinum-certified productions for Michael Bublè, Josh Groban, Andrea Bocelli, Seal and many more. He also kept co-writing material for his artists although the outcome really couldn’t compare in terms of quantity, quality and chart success to his amazing songwriting work of the previous decades. There are, however, two songs written in the 2000s that belong in Foster’s all-time songbook.
