Happy Ever After 

  

 
Unlimited Touch provided one of Prelude's shiniest moments in "I Hear Music In the Streets."  A sterling example of the post-disco r&b sound that appealed both to the radio and Paradise Garage, "Music" has an irresistable beat and lyrics that expressed the sentiments of dancers worldwide.

"Searching To Find the One" followed it up and was not as catchy, but nonetheless outcharted "Streets," going to #29, a few positions better than the #33 that "Streets" achieved.  A full LP was issued in 1983, afterwards they split up.  Singers Audrey Wheeler and Stephanie James opted for the life of a session vocalist, with Wheeler performing the lead on Jeff Lorber's 1985 hit "Step by Step."  The other members of Unlimited Touch were Sam Anderson (bass), Philip Hamilton (guitar), Galen Underwood (keys) and Tony Cintron (drums).

Unlimited Touch's Deepest Grooves

Unlimited Touch (Prelude, 1981)
Basically a greatest hits package on the first album.  "I Hear Music In the Streets," "Good Lovin'" and "Searching To Find The One" are all here, making this a good example of the Prelude sound.  

Yes I'm Ready (Prelude, 1983)
There's been a shift towards more electro soul than the soulful disco of the debut.  It's not a wack record but isn't as good as the first LP.

Searching To Find The One (Unidisc, 1990s)
This is a compilation of the two albums, although it's not marketed as such.  Probably will be easier to locate than the original LPs.
