Dennis Edwards Featuring Siedah Garrett – Don’t Look Any Further (Europe 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 19th September 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

“Don’t Look Any Further” is a 1984 single by former Temptations lead singer Dennis Edwards, featuring Siedah Garrett. The single was written by Franne Golde, Dennis Lambert and Duane Hitchings. It peaked at #2 on the Billboard Black Singles chart and peaked at #72 on the Billboard Hot 100. In the UK, the song peaked at #45. Guitar, bass and drum programming is by Paul Jackson, Jr.

The music video for the song has been described as “what … might be the worst video ever”.

However, given the rudimentary style of video making utilized at the time, many believe that the video was of, at least, moderate quality. Despite its simplicity, some early video aficionados descride the video as “awesomely terrible”. Regardless of how critics view this video, most agree that it is visual accompaniment for one of the greatest soul songs of the 1980s.
