MY HIT LIST: YOU'RE THE ONE FOR ME-D TRAIN

6:58 version

James 'D-Train' Williams & Hubert Eaves III
the flamboyantly named pair that were D-Train. In 1981 they released 'You're the one for me' on Prelude records. It was a huge hit on dance floors of the time and has been re released in various forms over the years, notably remixed by both Larry Levan and Shep Pettibone. It is a record that conjures up a specific time for me; as all good records do. It was characterised by the electronics and production along with William's impressive vocals. They had a number of other successes, notably with the singles 'Music' and 'Keep on'. This, there first single came out and wiped out the competition like a runaway Train, a D-train.
