Little info about Slave except the fact that it is an American group formed in 1975 and originally composed of Steve Washington, Floyd Miller, Tom Lockette Jr., Carter Bradley, Mark Adams, Mark Hicks, Danny Webster, Orion Wilhoite and Tim Dozier.
A group that will remain mainly in the musical history of the 80s for the high-caliber single "Watching you" released in 1980.
As such alone, we had to devote this article to them.
To discover or rediscover.

1977 ... first title and already first success. An ideal start to say the least and which ideally positions the group for the rest of the events ...
1978 ... the group confirms with this title that they are certainly not there to make only some figuration. Even if they will not remain like the best of their generation, what they offer largely holds up !
1978 ... a trendy sound, just like the style, which make this group one of the sure values of the moment. Quite simply a good job !
1979 ... which will undoubtedly remain as one of their major titles. In just 2 years, the group will have established himself as one of the flagship groups of the end of the 1970s. HU-GE !
1980 ... the transition to the 80s is done under the best conditions with a title of more than certain quality. A sound that hits the mark every time !
1980 ... what is certain is that with them, it will be essentially Dance, Dance, Dance. A core target claimed and perfectly assumed !
1980 ... the BIG title of the year 1980. A beginning of the decade which sees them perfectly mastering the subjects and aligning the hits in an impressive way
1981 ... a year 1981 that was slightly less inspired than the previous one. But the average level is still largely sufficient to keep them in the big league
1981 ... the adventure continues quietly with a succession of titles of more than certain quality. They will never produce a major title but whatever, what they offer is more than enough !
1981 ... a year 1981 which saw them stabilize in the middle of the World Elite ranking. They will hardly do better unfortunately ...
1983 ... after a year 1982 when not much will happen, here is the return of the group in this year 1983 in a certain form. Starting with this title of obvious quality !
1983 ... nothing exceptional but a good job, quite simply. It is clear that this group cannot claim to have the best inspiration of the moment but it is more than enough to keep them on the front of the stage
1986 ... after a disappointing 1984 and a 1985 empty year, here they are back in 1986 in average shape. The group does not manage to raise its level of play and stagnates irreparably in the middle of Charts ...
1986 ... here they are exceptionally in Intimist mode. And my faith, this change is rather good for them. Unfortunately, this will not stop their planned fall in the months to follow ...
1987 ... the last year of existence. 10 years after appearing on the international scene, they end their adventure here. A very nice adventure but one that has never seen them touch the stars ...
1987 ... this time, it's definitely the end. A last quality title which allows them to leave by the front door. What more !
