(Forrest M. Thomas, Jr.) hailed from Galveston, Texas, where he honed his
singing abilities in church during his formative years. As a teenager he moved
to Los Angeles to further his career where he won several singing contests.
After another move to the Netherlands Forrest appeared on one single with the
group Future before releasing his debut LP on Ariola Records at the age of
in 1983 the album was titled ONE LOVER in all territories except the UK where
it was simply called FORREST. An excellent and overlooked example of a great
80’s R&B/Soul/Dance record, it achieved two major hit singles and boasts
several more superb cuts.
The Boat’ (UK #4), a cover of The Hues Corporation’s US #1, uses smooth synth
lines to compliment Forrest’s vocals and includes a great percussive sequence
complete with rolling synthdrums, courtesy of Ben Liebrand. ‘Feel The Need In
Me’ (UK #17), a cover of The Detroit Emeralds classic, is given a tempo lift
and a spoken intro over funky guitar chops. Third single ‘One Lover (Don’t Stop
The Show)’ (UK #67) is a superb slice of uptempo-soul with another great
percussive interlude as is final single ‘Dancing With My Shadow.’
Shot Records/BBR is very excited to bring you the international CD debut of ONE
LOVER. Lovingly remastered and repackaged complete with liner notes by Malcolm
McKenzie and a personal note from Ben Liebrand recalling his work with Forrest.
With bonus 12” mixes, this remaster is a must have album for all R&B, Soul,
