ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
From the time that Melvin “Lyric” and his twin brother Mervin “Mystro” Steals wrote their first recording, “I’m Not Strong Enough,” on the “Party Time” label back in 1967, they have committed themselves to becoming the best songwriters that they could possibly be. In addition to co-writing the multi-million-sellers, “Could It Be I’m Falling In Love” by The Detroit Spinners, Gloria Gaynor’s seminal disco recording, “Honey Bee,” and rap artist Chubb Rock’s monster Rap record, “Treat ‘Em Right,” the talented twins have written over 100 Steals Brothers’ Classics (SBCs). The list of those who have recorded one or more of their compositions include such well-known artists as Eddie Kendricks; The Trammps; Major Harris; Wilson Picket; First Choice; Blue Mitchell; The Impressions; Garnett Mimms; Archie Bell & The Drells; Touch of Class; Arthur Prysock; Regina Bell; O.C. Smith; Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes; Ecstasy, Passion & Pain; The Jaggerz; Brenda & The Tabulations; and a host of others. Moreover, the brothers’ recent collaborations with Marvin Gaye’s former musical director Mckinley Jackson—a very talented arranger/producer from the Motor City—artfully blend the salient features of their Motown and Philly roots into a delightful new musical genre, which these gifted writers have appropriately branded, “The MoPhilly Sound.” Those who have heard any of their soon-to-be-released creative projects report being captivated by the powerful lyrics, alluring melodies, and pulsating beats of these well-produced recordings. Before bringing this piece to a close, it is also worth noting here that Melvin “Lyric” Steals not only has an earned Ph.D. in Curriculum & Supervision from the University of Pittsburgh, but similarly garnered the reputation of being a highly effective English, reading and language arts teacher; principal; and adjunct professor at Duquesne University during his thirty-six year career as an educator in multiple school districts in southwestern Pennsylvania. At this writing Dr. Steals continues to pursue his quest to generate meaningful success in the lives of all those with whom he interacts on a regular basis in both of his chosen fields of endeavor. Thanks for having taken the time to read this piece about the youngest of Tom and Leola Steals’ musically gifted twins.
