Throwback: Skipworth and Turner-Thinking About Your Love



Rodney Skipworth was a keyboardist from Syracuse, New York who met Memphis, Tennessee vocalist Phil Turner when they both worked in rival bands in Syracuse.They formed a partnership and released “Thinking About Your Love” on the 4th and Broadway label in 1985. The song was a part of Skipworth’s repertoire with the group New Sound Express from his Syracuse days. “Hot Pursuit” would follow “Thinking About Your Love” and they would record a Patrick Adams produced album for Warner Brothers that was released in 1986. “Can’t Give Her Up” would be their only other single to chart. Harlem Nights was their second album and it was released on 4th and Broadway. There were no hits but the worthwhile quality of the music was evident in “Cash,” “Harlem” and “I Miss It.”
