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!

Lisa Vale - ...And I Love You (1992)

Here is another delight that I only had on cassette but was sent to me in MP3 form by the delightful DJMPHACTOR/A.J.. Another huge thanks! And this is also another artist who has a very low profile on the internet. But thanks to a fan site for the show Roundhouse, I have a brief bio. Considering I knew nothing about Lisa when I bought the cassette for $1, it was more than I could hope for! She was born in New York, and began dancing at the age of 9, learning ballet, jazz and modern dance. At some point along the way she also discovered an interest and talent in singing, and was impressive enough to get signed by EastWest Records. Her album was produced by famed rock and soul producer Humberto Gatica, and it consists of dance pop with hints of rock and soul. She released three singles from the album ("Remember", "Love Plus Love" and "Waiting In The Wings") but none were hits and she failed to capture a significant audience - until now! Leaving her recording career behind, she joined the cast of the Nickelodeon variety show Roundhouse in 1993 and also sang the theme song (clips of Lisa on the show can be found on Youtube). She left after the second season to have a daughter, but rejoined the cast for the show's fourth and final season. There was talk of a second Latin album, but it has yet to surface. And I can find nothing on her since. So, once again, if anyone has any info, please share!

  1. Thank you for the Lisa Vale. A friend of mine turned me on to her in our college days and the only recordings I had of her were on a mix tape he made me.
    Your blog is amazing and helped me remember a lot of artists I had forgotten. So Thank You Very Much.

  5. I still have my CD! Lisa is my couisn! Im younger so it was super cool to be in middle school and all my friends watched and knew we were related...so proud! Im a mom myself now and found this blog while searching for "Roundhouse" clips to show my kids. They know her as mommys couisin so they kinda geeked out when they saw the clips lol! Since you seem to be fans I thought id update you. Lisa is a mom of 2 kids, a daughter in college and a son i think 12-ish (i know terrible i dont know that lol). She currently lives on the East Coast with her husband and has a succesful Photography carrer....takes AMAZING pictures! Take care all!
