Pattie Brooks – In My World

In 1982 Pattie got signed to Atlantic Records sub-label Mirage for which she released an album - In My World. The album included the prior 12" single with the same name, "In My World" which was flipped by the hit "Dr. Ruth" (a song about the famous US Radio & TV-hostess and sexologist). But that was the only album that came out of her deal with Mirage, but in 1983 she was back again, this time on the small BackStreet label. On BackStreet she released the 7" & 12" single "Get It On And Have A Party" and on the B-side of the 7" single (only) there's a song called "Hold Him". This track is a duet with famous actor Dan Aykroyd and was featured in the Doctor Detroit movie along with their second duet for the movie, "Working Girls". Dan also plays harmonica on one of the tracks. In 1985 Pattie could be heard in "Lifeline Dancing" on Easy Street Records. Two years later it was "All Talk", a song released on West Holly and in 1988 Pattie was to be found on Waterwheel with the song "Function At the Junction". During the 80's you released a few singles and an album for Mirage and then later released singles on BackStreet, Easy Street, West Holly and Waterwheel. Have you recorded anything else under your own name after that? "I never knew I was on WEST HOLLY and EASY STREET, but I recorded some tracks that haven't been heard yet." That's exciting news... Fingers crossed that we'll get to hear these track some day!
