Sheila E. And The E-Train

Before she became a solo artist in 1984, drummer Sheila E. played with Azteca, the Latin jazz-fusion band led by her father, percussionist Pete Escovedo; she also played on two of his solo albums recorded for Fantasy Records. Prince discovered Sheila E. around 1983 and had her sing on "Erotic City," the B-side to his number one 1984 single, "Let's Go Crazy." Prince also helped her secure a record contract with Warner Bros.; she released her debut album, Sheila E. in the Glamorous Life, in 1984. Written by Prince, the title track hit the U.S. Top Ten and her second single, "The Belle of St. Mark," charted in both the American and British Top 40. The following year she released Sheila E. in Romance 1600, which featured the number 11 hit "A Love Bizarre." Her self-titled album was released in 1987, yet it didn't have the commercial impact of her two previous records. Sheila E. joined Prince's band for the 1987 Sign O' the Times tour and is featured prominently in the resulting film documentary of the same name. Four years later, she returned with her fourth album, Sex Cymbal. Despite it's heavy dance beats and vivacious compositions, Sex Cymbal failed to chart. After her brief stint ringleading the band on Magic Johnson's late-night show, The Magic Hour, Sheila E. returned to recording and released The Writes of Passage in fall 2000. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

I love this song and I love Sheila E. She comes from a serious root of musicians and her learning grounds of working with Prince is remarkable. Regardless of her past, it's about where she IS TODAY. If we dig on everyone's past, trust there's grit. Judge ye not!
Report...
She is so gifted
Report...
Why is there no mention of her spiritual conversion? Perhaps her lack of prominance was due to her compromise and lack of commitment. Can't serve two masters. Just a thought.

I'll go with James84506 here on the notion that some recording artists are good &/or great at making one to several types or styles of music instead of just one distinct style. Considering the musical family that she is from, Miss Escovedo has come into her own.
