Unlimited Touch - Searching To Find The One

Gotta Love It!

Unlimited Touch was a New York based post disco group who had some regional fame in the early eighties. The group consisted of Audrey Wheeler, Phil Hamilton, Tony Cintron, Sandy Anderson, Stephanie James and Lenny Underwood. Raymond Reid and William Anderson from New York based band Crown Heights Affair instigated Unlimited Touch in the early '80's, however, they did not form part of the band. Featuring vocalists Audrey Wheeler and Stephanie James, the group was signed to Prelude Records (via Epic Records in the U.K.).

Due to a major management / label and group dispute, they disbanded by the end of 1981. Lenny Underwood co-wrote "I Hear Music In The Streets" and "Searchin' To Find The One" which were regional hits in the States. They later released "Yes We're Ready", in 1983, and a further single "Reach Out (Everlasting Love)" in 1984.

In 1999, producer Sean Combs sampled the bass and drum breakdown of "I Hear Music In The Streets" for the Faith Evans song, "All Night Long". Other artists who have sampled "I Hear Music In The Streets" include Biz Markie and Rampage along with Bille Lawrence.

Featuring vocalists Audrey Wheeler and Stephanie James, the group was signed to Prelude (via Epic in the U.K.).

Here they stirred UK dancefloors with the songs 'I Hear Music in The Streets', in 1980, and 'Searching To Find The One' in 1981.

Due to a major management / label and group dispute, the band went their seperate ways by the end of 1981.

As Prelude records owned the rights to the groups name, the subsequent recordingsdid not contain the hits that made the group famous.

Lenny Underwood co-wrote 'I Hear Music In The Streets' and 'Searchin' To Find The One' which were regional hits in the States.

They later released 'Yes We're Ready', in 1983, and a further single 'Reach Out (Everlasting Love)' in 1984.

In 1999, producer Sean 'Puffy' Combs sampled the bass and drum breakdown of 'I Hear Music In The Streets for the Faith Evans song called 'All Night Long'.
