Stevie Woods - Take Me To Your Heaven (1981) - Lp

Stevie Woods (born Joseph Stephen Woods, Jr.; July 2, 1951 – January 28, 2014) was an American R&B musician and singer.
Woods, a former Marine, graduated from Austin Community College.
In the 1970s and 1980s Stevie was married to Hollywood actress/entrepreneur Cheri Woods (née Lewis). In 1985 they had a daughter, Tiana Woods, now an L.A.-based singer/songwriter and front woman for the band Varna. Cheri later chronicled their life together in her 2001 self-published book Death Row Madam: Exposing Sex and Drugs in the Entertainment Industry. According to it, Stevie Woods was a cousin of American actor Philip Michael Thomas.

Woods was born in Chatham, Virginia, to jazz great Rusty Bryant. In the late 1970s, he was a member of the funk band Crowd Pleasers.
In the early 1980s, his two singles, "Steal the Night" and "Just Can't Win 'Em All", reached top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100. After his brief U.S. fame fizzled, Woods relocated to Germany, where he successfully re-launched his career, releasing the single "Rock Me Baby" and starring in the musical Starlight Express. In 2010, his all three early-1980s albums were re-issued on CD by Wounded Bird Records.
The following year, he released the album Quiet Storm.
This was the debut album for vocalist Stevie Woods, who had Top 40 hits with Steal The Night & Just Can't Win Em All. The album features a multitude of West Coast players and even as a version of Through The Years, which became a hit for Kenny Rogers just a few months after this release.
