ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Born and nurtured in Brooklyn, New York, James Williams (D'Train) began his singing career at age 6. He sang in many church choirs and school choirs. While attending school at Erasmus High School he earned the prestigious title "D-Train" as a Defensive Tackle, football star. ("When he hits you, you felt the impact of the Train"). James' career came into play by a chance meeting, while helping out his fellow classmate the legendary Will Downing in the studio, he met producer Hubert Eaves III and the two embarked on a musical journey of Number 1 Billboard Hits.

James "D'Train Williams" gave memorable and fresh-sounding R&B/dance tracks of the early to mid-1980's. Along with Hubert Eaves III their first single, the brilliant "You're The One For Me," was released on Prelude Records in 1981. The song hit number one on the dance chart in early 1982 and kept that position for three weeks. Their first album for Prelude was 1982's entitled "You're The One For Me." The album stormed the club charts and produced three powerhouse 12" singles. Besides the stunning title track it also featured "Keep On" and the much-covered "Walk On By."

"Music," D-Train's second album, followed in 1983 and was supported with another batch of singles: "Keep Giving Me Love," "Are You Ready For Me," and the major club smash "Music" amongst them. "Something's On Your Mind,." Followed by "Oh how I Love You Girl", top 10 R'N'B hit, Misunderstanding (from his debut Columbia album, "Miracles of The Heart",) "In Your Eyes", and a host of others.

Having signed to the Epic/Prelude label, they found greater success in the UK than in their home country. They enjoyed three UK Top 30 hits with "You're The One For Me" (1982), "Music, Part 1" (1983) and "You're The One For Me (Remix)" (1985). D-Train's biggest US hit was the Billboard R&B Top 5 single, "Something's On Your Mind' (1983).

Blige Cheryl Lynn, Patti Austin, Kirk Whalum, Judy Collins, Aaron Carter, Elton John (Aida CD), Clay Aikins (Christmas CD), Natalie Cole (Snowfall On The Sahara CD), and many others.

Ride with me
James still have an extraordinary voice, but the song is not his best. I hope the album would be released and look forward to this a lot!
