About Our Guests:
Black Ivory is an R&B group from Harlem, which had a number of hits in the 1970s, including "Don't Turn Around", "You and I" (which featured Larry Blackmon from Cameo on drums), "I'll Find a Way (The Loneliest Man in Town)", "Spinning Around", "What Goes Around (Comes Around)", "Will We Ever Come Together", and "Mainline."
The group features songwriter and prolific disco producer Leroy Burgess, Stuart Bascombe, and Russell Patterson. They were managed by Patrick Adams, an executive at the Today/Perception record company. Burgess was the lead voice of the majority of their hits in the early 1970s.

In recent years, some of Black Ivory's work has been sampled by a number of artists. Raekwon sampled "I Keep Asking You Questions" for his song Criminology on his acclaimed 1995 album, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx. In 2000, Barbara Tucker reached number one on the Billboard dance chart with here single, "Stop Playing with My Mind", which sampled "Mainline." In 2005, Omarion sampled "Don't Turn Around" on the remix of his song "I'm Gonna Try (Pt. 2)". 9th Wonder sampled "Love Won't You Stay" on Kaze's "For The Record". Brother Ali sampled "It's Time to Say Goodbye" on his track "Love On Display". Brand Nubian also sampled the introduction from "Wishful Thinking" for their song "Where are you now?". In his 2006 Beat Konducta Vol.1-2: Movie Scenes, Madlib sampled "You and I" in his beat titled "The Understanding (Comprehension)". Later on, in 2008; Q-Tip also sampled "You and I" for his single "Gettin Up". In 2012, Lil B sampled "Surrender" for his track "Surrender To Me" on the White Flame mixtape.

In addition, poet Wanda Robinson, on her album Black Ivory, used the instrumental track of "Don't Turn Around" as the background for her poem "The Final Hour" and "I Keep Asking You Questions" for her poem "Instant Replay." Robinson was Black Ivory's label mate at Today/Perception.
