You Can't Turn me Away and Give Me Your Love got the most attention on the phenomenal Roy Ayers produced Sylvia Striplin l.p. released on Uno Melodic Records in 1981.
But my favorite was Searchin'. It's simply sultry lush disco. I was still pretty new to Ebay when I posted my white label Promo and I was pleased to see it fly up to near $200.00. I've noticed that it's one of those 12" which continues to attract the high bids. Seems like on Ebay certain records fall out of favor and other ones get hot. But Sylvia Striplin seems to be a consistent hot bid.
I don't usually post edits but this one rocks so hard that I felt it should be exposed.
Whatever happened to her anyway? She did have a follow-up 12" release on Rissa Chrissa entitled, Keep Pushing and Going Home in 1982. These too are also rather rare but I don't have them. I would love to get them eventually though.
here's the wikipedia on her:
