Music: Loose Ends - The Best of Loose Ends

One of the top British dance and urban contemporary trios in the early '80s, Loose Ends formed in London. They were originally called Loose End, included Jane Eugene, Steve Nichol and Carl McIntosh. Virgin UK signed them in 1982. By 1983 the group changed its name to Loose Ends and signed with Virgin/MCA in America in 1984. Their single Hanging on a String (Contemplating) topped the R&B charts in 1985, and they repeated that achievement in 1986 with Slow Down. Their last hit was Watching You in 1988, which reached number two. The group shuffled its lineup in 1990 for the release Look How Long of with McIntosh was joined by Linda Carriere and Sunay Suleyman.

I'm bumpin' Loose Ends on my iPod all the time. My fave: You Can't Stop The Rain

Much love for spotlighting an R&B group that's been lost in the music shuffle.
