Throwback: Lillo Thomas-I’m In Love

Lillo Thomas grew-up in Brooklyn, New York and became a track star by the time he was 16. He set the world record for the 200 meter and it made him eligible for the Olympics but a car accident changed his career plans. Trading sports for music, his launch in the R&B singing world found him doing session work for James Ingram, Kashif, Melba Moore and others. He got a solo deal with Capitol and by 1985 he was touring with Eddie Murphy. Paul Laurence and Kashif’s keen songwriting and production provided Lillo’s discography with “You’re A Good Girl,” “Your Love’s Got A Hold On Me,” “Sexy Girl,” “(Can’t Take Half) All Of You,” “Settle Down,” “I’m In Love” and “Wanna Make Love (All Night Long).” He recorded three albums for the label with the last one, Lillo, from 1987 being the most popular. Thomas would not release any music again until 2007’s How Can I Look Her (In The Eye) for the digital label Fitingo Music.
