Posted by DjPaulT on April 4th, 2014


Side One


Sterling Harrison was an American soul singer, born July 19, 1941 in Richmond, Virginia and died August 21, 2005.

In 1979 “The Holland-Dozier-Holland production team signed Harrison to Motown, and he cut a would-be roller disco anthem for the label called “Roll Her, Skate Her,” but the deal ended after the single flopped, and a 1980 album for Atlantic fared no better.”

The song was included on a February 1983 episode of the sitcom Diff’rent Strokes titled Family On Ice. The song is played while Dorothy Hammill and Dana Plato are ice-skating.

    Nice song 🙂
    Thank you for this and many other uploads.

    PS – Hope you will finish the Wham ! singles by upping the last single – The Edge of Heaven/Where did your heart go.

    Was it a coincidence that the Wham ! uploads started the week George Michael released his new album Symphonica ?

    It was strategically planned Yog 🙂
