Just to let everyone know, I lost my partner at the beginning of August, and I'm not sure when I'll be able to get back into this blog, whether it be new posts or reupping dead links. I will let you know when and if I am ready to come back to this blog, but for the moment it is unfortunately not a priority. Sorry.


If you wish to download an album off of this blog and the link is dead, please request it either in the comments or the Chat Box and I will reupload it as soon as possible. :)

And don't forget to follow the Isle on Facebook and Twitter!

Jamie Loring - Love Or Infatuation (1992)

Again, this will be brief, as a search for Jamie Loring on the internet reveals nothing about the artist. What can safely be said is that this was an attempt to cash in on the teen pop craze began by Tiffany and Debbie Gibson, but near the very end of their reign. As it was produced by Steve 'Silk' Hurley and his house cohorts Jamie Principle and E-Smoove, it was also riding the wave of popularity house music was enjoying in the pop charts thanks to CeCe Peniston and Crystal Waters, among others. The combination seemed like it should hit, but it didn't, perhaps because it came a little too late. Young Ms. Loring has a fairly average voice, to be honest, as did most of the teen pop singers of the time, but thanks to great production, the album goes beyond the blander pop fare of the time. The best track, "Crazy", features another Hurley muse, Kym Sims, who used the same formula to much greater success. Whatever happened to Ms. Loring is a mystery, but chances are with age she's honed her craft and is performing someplace, somewhere...

**UPDATE: Thanks once again to Consolecharlie, Jamie Loring has been found! She has a Facebook page using her full name Jamie Loring Fohrman. Invite her as a friend and see what she's been up to! ;) We'll definitely keep you posted...

  4. I really like this album, it's a bit more experimental than the standard pop/dance affair of the time.

  5. I just Googled Jamie Loring and found out in a partial Chicago Sun News Article (you have to be a member to see the whole article) that Jamie was from Highland Park and only 16 years old when she released her album. Her full name is Jamie Loring Forhman and used the name "Jamie Loring" as her showbiz name.
    Hope this information helps.

  6. Jamie Loring was ahead of her time!!! Not only is her voice out of this WORLD, but she is even more beautiful than she was then. She has become a kind, sweet, great listener & has always been an amazing person. Too bad shes not in the music industry anymore. It could use raw talent like her!!!!

  8. This has got to be one of the best things you've ever put out, if not the best. Almost every song is catchy and she's got a killer voice. Way more than a period piece -- this is a classic overlooked dance-pop record. THANKS!!
