Thanks for the understanding most of you have had for the loss of my partner. The situation was unexpected and has not been easy, but I am better. I have been very busy since, with the aftermath and work, so I really haven't had the time or desire to post here. But I do check occasionally and will try to update requested links when I get a chance. No idea when or if I'll get to new posts, but you never know. He did support this blog, so maybe I'll get back to it. Thanks for your patience.

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!

Oval Emotion - Reach Out (1993)

Though the face of Oval Emotion was vocalist / songwriter Cissy Goodridge and musician / songwriter /co-producer Kenny Moran, most of the group's sound owes a lot to the production of Nick Fiorucci. The Canadian house producer was a huge presence in the late 80's house scene, contributing to many house songs that would become worldwide dance hits and founding successful dance label Hi-Bias records. He would later find greater Canadian success as half of pop-house duo Temperance, and it appears he honed his craft for that act in his work with this one. Oval Emotion were also a pop-house duo with soul. They had dance hits both in Canada and internationally with their first couple of singles "Do It" and "Go Go". They released this album a couple of years later and had a further hit with the title track, which even made a dent in the Canadian pop charts. But a small dent is all they made, and they only managed to put out a few more singles to lesser success: "Don't Make Me Wait" from the album, and two new songs - "Higher And Higher" in 1996 and "Do You Have Another One" in 1997. Fiorucci and Moran continue to produce, and Cissy was briefly a part of acappella trio Wayward Sister, but now focuses on her job as head of Music and Performing Arts at various Canadian schools.
