R&B, soul, disco and gospel singer Thelma Houston scored a No. 1 for a week in 1977 with the Kenneth Gamble, Leon Huff and Cary Gilbert written (Gamble & Huff-produced) "Don't Leave Me This Way". Originally a huge hit for Philly soul stars Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, with the intention of being passed on to Diana Ross by Motown execs who claimed ownership of the song in 1976, rising star Houston was selected to cover the song instead for her third album Any Way You Like It. "Don't Leave Me This Way" was the lone big hit for the disco diva from Mississippi, topping the pop, R&B, and dance charts in early 1977 and winning Houston the Best Female R&B Vocal Performance at the Grammy's for 1977.

Friday Night Throwback: Joe Tex - "I Gotcha"



Former country singer turned R&B artist Joe Tex recorded his hit single, the ridiculously funky "I Gotcha" in the late 1960's, but didn't release it until 1971 because he was unsatisfied with the initial recording. The single, which was originally intended to be recorded by New Orleans singer King Floyd, was the first single off Tex's 1972 album also titled I Gotcha. An angry song that dealt with the touchy subject matter of infidelity in Tex's own absolutely inimitable style, "I Gotcha" would result in Tex having his first major hit in five years. As "I Gotcha" eventually peaked at number one on the R&B chart, number two on the Pop chart for two weeks and would sell around three million copies.
