Robbie Dupree

Soft rock singer Robbie Dupree was born Robert Dupuis in Brooklyn in 1947, and began his singing career in street-corner doo-wop groups. He later became infatuated with blues and R&B, and in 1970 began performing original songs around Greenwich Village clubs (and even played with future Chic guitarist Nile Rodgers). In 1973, he moved to the town of Woodstock, where he played with a number of local musicians and bands, as well as working on his songwriting. In 1978, he moved to Los Angeles in search of a record deal, and met up with old friends Peter Bunetta and Rick Chudacoff, who became his production team. Singing a soft style of blue-eyed soul that was eminently compatible with the adult contemporary radio format, Dupree signed with Elektra and issued his self-titled debut in 1980. Lead single "Steal Away" was a Top Ten smash, and the follow-up "Hot Rod Hearts" also reached the Top 20. Dupree was nominated for a Best New Artist Grammy, but after his 1981 follow-up LP Street Corner Heroes and the accompanying chart single "Brooklyn Girls," he stopped recording for a while, simply waiting out a contract he was dissatisfied with.

Finally, in 1989, Dupree returned on Capitol Records with the album Carried Away. It didn't perform as well as his earlier work, and Dupree eventually wound up signing with the Japanese label Polystar, for whom he recorded Walking on Water in 1993. Distributed in the U.S. by Miramar, the record did produce a couple of minor adult contemporary hits in the title track and "Goodbye to L.A." Smoke and Mirrors followed in 1995, featuring keyboardist David Sancious, with whom Dupree later toured as a duo. During the '90s, Dupree also expanded into the production arena, working on records for Artie Traum and longtime collaborator Bill LaBounty, among others. 1997 brought the limited-edition EP Vintage, and in late 1998 Dupree issued the double-live album All Night Long, which looked back over his entire catalog. 2001 brought another limited-edition EP, appropriately titled Vintage, Vol. 2. 2008 saw Dupree issue Time and Tide on his own Robbie Dupree Records imprint. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

First verse, he says he heard Paul Butterfield and it changed his life, then whoever played the harmonica solo (him?) sounded just like Butterfield. Liked it on that basis alone.

All this time- I never heard of Robbie Dupree, yet now claiming this station as my favorite, I seem to know all the words to all of his great songs! Thank you, Robbie Dupree!

Actually, this song was the subject of a plagiarism suit, where the Doobies sued Dupree for lifting the lick from What a Fool Believes.

you rock
I was on YouTube and this popped up as additional songs I may like...I use to listen to out in a field, in the wet dew looking at the stars with my Irish Setter wondering if someday, and soon, I'd be out there with, of all things, a guy??????Goo d n e s s had I only known.....!! ! ! ! ?

It sounds like Steely Dan learned a lot from Dupree
marinaboats
did micheal mcDonald sing back ups on this
Steal Away. A great song that brings back many good memories of my youth.
Forgot about this song..love it!
M.M is on backing vocals and I think produced this record. I remember him on Bandstand with Dick also.
sure sounds like Michael McDonald! :)

I was almost certain that Michael McDonald did back up vocals on Steal Away but I was wrong. Great song though.

Steal Away is really a nice song.....
Steal Away is pretty great.
Good example of how to make an entire career out of two moderately sucessful songs.
johnshermer
Like the sound, but come on....Time and Tide.....is the quintessenti a l Split Enz album of early 1980's. You gotta get your own title for a comeback album without scalping someone else's work.
SWEET
cool
sounds like steely dan, I like it!
I had forgotten all about him but after hearing this tune it all came back. He was really good and yes, he does sound like Michael mc Donald
I'd never noticed how much he sounds like Michael McDonald...
Blue eyed soul rocks!
I love that blue-eyed soul!
One I forgot about, this brings me back. this is great.
