DISCO FRIDAY!

Judy Cheeks is a female dance music singer born in Miami, Florida in 1954 and is the daughter of gospel singer and preacher Rev. Julius Cheeks. In 1978 she hit #10 on the Hot Dance Club Play chart with her first disco single “Mellow Lovin’,”. The single also peaked at #65 on the Billboard Hot 100.

“Mellow Lovin’,” was produced by Anthony Monn (best known for his work with gay icon Amanda Lear) in Giorgio Moroder’s Musicland Studios in Munich.

Cheeks also appears as a backing vocalist on Lear’s 1979 album Never Trust A Pretty Face and on Boney M.’s Ten Thousand Lightyears and Kalimba de Luna – 16 Happy Songs as a member of vocal trio La Mama. In 1986, she worked as a studio musician (providing backing vocals) on Alphaville’s album Afternoons in Utopia.

Judy Cheeks had a career resurgence in the 1990s, when she re-emerged with a string of dance chart hits, including two #1s in 1995, “Respect” and “As Long As You’re Good To Me”, as well as “Reach”, which appeared on the Summer Hitmix ’94 CD released by ZYX Records.

This US 12″ promo includes the Tom Moulton Disco Mix which is exclusive to this release. This version is longer than what appeared on the commercial releases. The same mix appears on both sides of the single.
