Had Motown promoted Platinum Hook as aggressively as it promoted Rick James, Switch, and the Commodores, the band would not have been so obscure. Produced by keyboardist Greg Wright in 1978, this self-titled debut album features two talented lead vocalists (Tina Renee Stanford and Stephen Daniels) and shows Platinum Hook to have a smooth, attractive sound along the lines of New Birth or Atlantic Starr (which also made its vinyl debut in 1978).

With a hook you simply can’t get out of your head, Weak is a ’90s R&B standard, but it’s That’s What I Need and You’re Always On My Mind -a pair of lush, hypnotic ballads-that epitomise the trio’s years vibe.
