Luther earned his third consecutive chart-topper today in 1983 with the album Busy Body. What’s your favorite track from this LP?
Another big break for Luther came on this day in 1975, when Bette Midler’s Clams on the Half-Shell Revue opened on Broadway. On the recommendation of David Bowie, Luther arranged vocals for Bette and backing group The Harlettes, raising his profile as a session singer.
Fans gave Luther five awards in the Blues & Soul magazine 1988 readers poll, and the editors put him on the cover for it on this week’s issue that same year!
