Image: 1611473 Black Ivory was the pride of Harlem - and
New York’s answer to the Philly-Fine
Delfonics - but with infinitely more teen sex
appeal. This silky-smooth 70s harmony trio
featured the fabulous falsetto lead of Leroy
Burgess (nephew of Philly soul legend, Thom
Bell) and charted four top-40 R&B singles and
two top-30 LPs under the guiding hand of their
manager and TODAY records’ driving force,
Patrick Adams. Songs like, “You and I”, “Time
is Love” and “Don’t Turn Around”
(which they performed live on Soul Train)
are acknowledged Sweet Soul classics.
And as the decade progressed and tastes
changed, they successfully conquered the disco
dancefloors with fave-raves like, “Mainline”
and “Walking Downtown (Saturday Night) for
BUDDAH records – which were liberally
sampled by the Hip-Hop generation –
a true testament to the staying power of
their incessantly soulful sound.
