L.T.D.
Backing musicians for Sam and Dave formed in Greensville, moved to New York in 1968.
Hot band on the rotating P.A. circuit signed to A&M in 1973.
Produced with Larry and Fonce Mizell in 1976.
Osborne's powerful tenor gave the group an edge over other soul groups
and with "Love To The World" they peaked at number seven on the black album charts.
They are, as well as for their fine disco pieces, also appreciated for strong soul ballads such as "Holding On (When Love Is Gone)".
Jeffrey Osborne left the band around 1980 for a solo career and was replaced by talented soulsters Leslie Wilson and Andre Ray.
After 18 year absence from touring and recording Jonny McGhee reformed the group with new lead vocalist Greg Henneghan in 1999.
