Switch (R&B)

Ohio-based funk band Switch began in 1975 as First Class. Jermaine Jackson discovered the group that included lead vocalist Phillip Ingram (brother of James Ingram) and Greg Williams, Bobby DeBarge, Tommy DeBarge, Eddie Fluellan, and Jody Sims. In 1978, they had a Top Ten R&B hit with "There'll Never Be." They also had two others during their time on Gordy, "I Call Your Name" in 1979 and "Love Over and Over Again" in 1980. Ingram went on his own in 1980, and the DeBarges left to assist their siblings' group, DeBarge. Percussionist/vocalist Renard Gallo and Gonzales Ozen and keyboardist Attala Zane Giles were their replacements. They left Gordy for Total Experience in 1984, where they cut their final LP, Am I Still Your Boyfriend? ~ Ron Wynn, Rovi

They don't make this kind of music anymore I wish they WOULD!!!
Calling On All Girls is on of my favorites by SWITCH! The name comes from their immense talents. They would switch who was playing each instrument! U just don't see talent like this anymore!

Unique by far some very powerful voices. they just went so UNSUNG so sad . Back then the music was good.
Great Love Song! love to get closer to you bab! RQ/rxh
One of my all time favorite songs!! :) my love for music is oldies because it's such a uniqueness of melodies and lyrics that music today doesn't have anymore.
Wow laneita, I'm from Akron and my mom went to school with them at Buchtel HS! She know them too. I wonder if you knew my mom. She passed this year at the age of 61
People thought that was DeBarge because that is all you hear! They had some unique and powerful voices!
I always think Debsrge sing this song
I love this group!! Phenomenal! Miss Bobby though!
I didn't know that james ingram brother was part of the group. I actually though debarge song this song.

Love Bobby Debarge RIP
This is awesome the memories I'll always have u in my heart there nvere b someone like u in my life miss u.
I hear you loud and clear
I had both Eddie Fluellen and Howard Hewitt in the same class at Buchtel High School in Akron, Ohio. I was their teacher. Eddie won a song writing contest that year and got one thousand dollars for it. He use to borrow my albums to take home to listen to. Howard and I have the same birthday.... . O c t o b e r 1st. They are 10 years younger than me.
Back in my crazy teenage days, My friends and I spotted this album with these super fine guys on the cover. The albums name said switch. After acting the fool in the store, we all bought this album! We never even heard it!! LOL. Buff said!
One of the best slow jams I sooooo miss this @ my baby won't b another like her.
That's right. Bobby was El's mentor and the reason El sings in falsetto. Initially he was so intimidated by Bobby's seemingly perfect vocals and he didn't want to be picked on for sounding like a girl but Bobby insisted and he relented... Bobby was a vocal virtuoso. When u hear El you hear what Bobby cultivated and extracted.
miss bobby debarge
miss them!!!!!!
Love Them!!!
Wouldn't be me If Debarge ain't in it!!!!
My favorite I can listen ova and ova again
Great jam
This crazy woman here saw this album in the record store with her sisters back in the day! I had not heard one song on this album but these brothers were so FINE! LOL! I had to have this album to just LOOK AT! LOL! These dudes could SING! RIP Bobby!

Bobby Debarge R.I.P.

This is bobby debarge not el!!
I'm not hating on Switch, but I picked this station to hear The Emotions and have heard only 1 song by them in the last hour, WTF?
For the record El DeBarge had nothing to do with SWITCH music. El and his siblings were too young. Bobby and Tommy were the two DeBarge brothers in SWITCH. The others were Phillip Ingram who is a personal friend of mine, Eddie FLuellen Gregory Williams, and Jody Sims. They were aewsome! They actually played their own instruments unlike todays artists. Greogory was the mastermind. The remainding members Eddie, Phillip and Greogory have reunited and do shows in California. Phillip tours with Sheen
