Bob & Pauline Wilson – Somebody Loves You – 1981

Bob and Pauline Wilson were originally members of the 70’s Jesus Music band Seawind. They decided to do their own thing in 1981 though Bob appeared on a Seawind album in 1982. Pauline actually won a Grammy in 1979 for her vocals on a Sesame Street album. Yes the Grammy was for best children’s album. Anyway this was the only album Pauline and Bob put out together. After this album Bob went on to be a very successful studio musician appearing on dozens of CCM albums. Pauline continued to record albums most with her old band mates at Seawind. Apparently Bob and Pauline divorced somewhere along the line here which may explain the sudden split of their career paths. The first single of the album was “You Can’t Hide” did not single but the track “Joyful Melody” did single peaking at # 12 with 18 weeks on the charts. The style of this album is decidedly funk. Not just a little Funky but full head on high speed funk. If your a fan of funk you’ll love this album.
