CD http://www.ioffer.com/i/550578524 May 30,1981 This was her most successful song and was controversial at the time because the subject matter of the song compared a woman's lover metaphorically to the Devil. Terri Gibbs is blind from birth. More info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terri_Gibbs

  1. WOW...Talk about a FLASHBACK !
  2. I think it was just meant to be a novelty tune I never gave the"Devil" reference a second thought.. My friend when he first heard this, he thought it was Anne Murray. Very similar voice. What is Terri's vocal range? Contralto? Sure sounds like it.
  3. Whatever happened to her??
  4. Terri is one of the best.....thanks
  5. Terri is a nice woman who used to visit my store she sometimes sings in church.
  6. When it comes to looks, he/she? is the susan boyle of the 80's!!
  7. When Barry White is introducing Terri, he says that "Chad" Atkins gave her her start in the industry, when he clearly means Chet Atkins. I realize they come from two completely different musical genres, but he is a professional and should know the difference. Ray Charles had some crossover country hits even though he was primarily R&B - and I doubt anyone ever called him "Roy". 
  8. "He must've tapped my telephone line" Now he's gonna tap that ass.
  9. Blind from birth. WHAT A REVELATION. This song and it's exquisite lyrics, I always thought were from a sighted singer. The blue eyes and blue jeans just moved me in that duirection ! ! AMAZING ! ! Wonderful to see the introduction with Barry White and Dionne Warwick. WOW THANKS
  10. GOOD SONG
  11. devil speaks..
  12. I remeber her I seen her in concert what ever happened to her it was like she had a one hit wonder too bad she was good in concert She was blind her & Ronnie M would of made a great duet their voices would sound great together
  13. Oh man, I haven't heard this in over 30 yrs!
  14.

  15. @bigcheese1973 You are just envious!!!
  16. BARRY WHITE AND DIONNE WARWICK YOU DAMN FOOLS
  17. With the entire song being about a man, it never even gave you a slight clue? lol That's okay, because for a long time, I thought Geddy Lee was female, and Stevie Ray Vaughan was black. LOL
  18. I remember liking this song. I had forgotten that this song is sooo old! Damn! 1981!? I'm old too!
  19. Man I love this song, but I thought it was a guy singing it all this time. Interesting!
  20. Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj have careers...
  21. Where do you get that?
  22. I AM 42 I HEAR THIS SONG IN MY UNCLE GARAGE AS HE WORKED ON CARS .I HEAR THIS SONG WHEN I WAS 10 OR 9 . THEY PLAYED THIS SONG LIKE RUNNING WATER
  23. I never paid attention to a singer's looks. All I cared about was the sound. Nowadays my wife and I enjoy concerts from the oldies but goodies because they are rather convenient for us. Watching my artists, though, has really never been here or there.
  24. One hell of a feel good song , brings back alot of memories , thank you whoever posted it
  25. This is Ronnie Millsap's sister, or at least a close relative!
