Second Listen: A John Whitehead gem is remastered and reissued

It is impossible to talk about popular music in the 70s and 80s without mentioning the late, great John Whitehead early on in the discussion. With partner Gene McFadden, Whitehead wrote such seminal hits as “Backstabbers” for the O’Jays and “Wake Up Everybody” for Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, in addition to McFadden & Whitehead’s own #1 smash, “Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now.”

Whitehead went on to a solo singing career, highlighted by the 1988 disc I Need Money Bad, a tongue in cheek title referencing his battles with the IRS. John sadly died in 2004, but left a tremendous legacy, including I Need Money Bad, which has now been digitally remastered and re-released to the pleasure of his millions of fans.

One of the highlights of the disc is the newly re-issued single, “One Million Tomorrows,” a lush ballad that should have Adult Soul and Quiet Storm shows taking notice.
