Sweet Love – The Commodores

Like a lot of R&B, Funk and Soul groups in the 1960s and 70s, the next artists started out at University. In this case, it was at Tuskegee University. The Commodores were formed in 1968 from two groups that were attending Tuskegee, the Jays, and the Mystics. Again like most groups, The Commodores played around campus and local teen venues, until 1972, when they opened for the Jackson 5. Barry Gordy of Motown fame signed the group and the rest is history.
Lionel Ritchie was one of the lead singers during the period when they had some of their biggest and popular hit songs, like the classic “Brickhouse,” and “Three Times A Lady.”
Lionel Ritchie, left the group in 1982, to pursue a very successful solo career. The group had one major hit after he departed with “Nightshift.”
