The ultimate place for 80's Soul Funk & Boogie

La Toya Jackson - Heart Don’t Lie

Heart Don’t Lie

La Toya Jackson

Private I Records (US)

Format: LP

Year: 1984


Certainly the best album by La Toya Jackson ! The LP features 4 very strong funky tracks.

The album was produced Amir Bayyan, brother of Khalis Bayyan and Robert Bell of Kool & the Gang, who was hired after Joe Jackson, La Toya’s father and then-manager, heard his tapes. Jackson recorded the album sporadically over a six-month period.
The album features a plethora of musical guests, including Shalamar’s Howard Hewett and reggae-pop group Musical Youth on the title track, musicians from Kool & the Gang on several tracks throughout the album, and collaborations with her siblings, including Marlon, Janet, and Tito, who co-produced the track “Frustration”.
