"Nite And Day (Dusk Mix)" - Al B. Sure!

Here's one that takes me back to a fantastic vacation I had at Myrtle Beach, SC the summer of '88. Every time you hit the sand this song was playing on somebody's radio as they sunbathed. Sure! (real name Albert Joseph Brown III) was chosen the winner of the Sony Innovators Talent Search by Quincy Jones in 1987. From there he worked on many of Jones' recordings including a quartet on the single, "Secret Garden" with El DeBarge, Barry White and James Ingram. Al's 1st solo LP, "In Effect Mode" sold over 2 million copies and "Nite And Day" was a huge hit peaking at #7 on the Hot 100 the week of June 16th, 1988. Trivia: Al had his own 900 phone line at one point and it was the third most successful revenue generating hotline, beaten only by New Kids On The Block and Run DMC's . Al even tried acting. He was in a pilot with Martin Lawrence called "Private Times" in 1991 and a guest star on Will Smith's "Fresh Prince Of Bel Air". Al B. Sure! (I believe) is working as a DJ at KHHT in Los Angeles presently. This version lasts 6:01.
