Osborne & Giles – Stranger In The Night (1985)

Billy Osborne, elder brother to R&B vanguard Jeffrey Osborne, and former co-bandmate in L.T.D., and Attala Zane Giles, late of R&B duo Deco (alongside Philip Ingram of Switch fame) united as a singer/songwriter duo in the ’80s after leaving both their respective groups. In 1985, the duo crafted a single album for Chicago-based Red Label. The result is a strong collection of modern soul, leaning toward some of the meticulously sequenced pop sounds of the 1980s (not unlike what you would hear on Shalamar’s The Look album), but also yielding some deep ballads that are more than worth the price of admission.

Giles is the lead voice you hear on all but two of the tracks; his falsetto brings a richness wherever it was applied, especially on the pop-infused opener “Keep Pushing On”, and ballads such as the velvety “I’ll Save Forever For You” and “Be Right By Your Side”. The real takeaway from this album is the album’s closer, “I’ll Make You An Offer” — some very well-traveled ears may recognize it as the song hip-hop producer 9th Wonder used to demonstrate his sampling skills in one of his many lectures in the film The Wonder Year.
