Blue Magic

Blue Magic was formed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1974 when former member of The Delfonics, Randy Cain brought in singer-songwriter Ted 'Wizard' Mills to do some writing with the Philly-based WMOT production company and a short time later, the group Shades of Love, featuring Keith Beaton, Richard Pratt, Vernon Sawyer and his brother Wendell, came in for an audition. According to Marc Taylor, in his book 'A Touch of Classic Soul of the Early 1970's',[1] "although the group performed admirably, they lacked a standout lead singer". WMOT execs decided to replace the Toppicks, the act singer-songwriter-producer- Ted Mills recorded with. They inserted the other group they owned contractually called the Shades of Love to join with Ted Mills and re-named the group Blue Magic. They were signed with Atco Records through WMOT in the same year.
Blue Magic were one of the earliest acts produced by Norman Harris, a Philadelphia recording veteran. The group's harmonies were supported by the MFSB studio house band. The early release from their first album in 1974 was Spell on My Mind which went to the top 10 R&B charts along with What"s come over Me,both written and co produced by Ted Mills. Blue Magic broke through in a big way with their first million-selling US Top 10 hit single, "Sideshow". It was awarded a gold disc by the R.I.A.A. in August 1974.[2] It climbed to #8 on the Billboard Hot 100 and topped the R&B chart. A follow-up, "Three Ring Circus" also sold well, reaching #36 in the pop chart and #5 R&B. MFSB guitarist Bobby Eli wrote both "Sideshow" and "Three Ring Circus". The group became known mostly for their smooth ballads. The album Thirteen Blue Magic Lane in 1975 maintained the group's popularity and spawned their version of the popular dance number "We're On The Right Track", as well as the hit ballad, "Chasing Rainbows". Blue Magic had two R&B chart singles in 1975 and four in 1976. A Ted Mills' song, "What's Come Over Me" from their debut album was re-worked as a duet with Margie Joseph dubbed in, alongside Mills' original lead vocals. The new approach saw the song climb to #11 on the R&B chart again in 1975.
The group had their first world tour that year, which lasted for 42 weeks. The tour included 48 states in the United States, five countries in Europe and a 10-day stay in the Philippines. Blue Magic concluded their tour with a two-week engagement in the Virgin Islands. In April 1975, they were chosen as the best new group of the year which earned two Ebony Awards. The first was presented in New York by Aretha Franklin, the second in Florida by the female recording artist, Vanity.
By 1977, the group's popularity was starting to fade as music styles changed and despite the group continuing to record consistently, they failed to chart. Label moves to Capitol (for a reunion with Norman Harris) and then Mirage resulted in some R&B chart action, but no major success. Background singer Richard Pratt left in the 1980s. The next break-up was when Vernon and Wendell Sawyer left. The remaining members, Ted Mills and Keith Beaton hired two other singers and traveled to L. A. to record with Skip Scarborough and members of Earth Wind & Fire on the album called “Message from the Magic” When the original group regrouped, they had some renewed popularity in 1990 with a comeback album, "From Out of the Blue" recorded with lead singer Ted Mills. Also in 1990, The Amsterdam News carried the story of Ted Mills' near-fatal car accident. Mills was then replaced by unknown singers who had no history of professional recordings. Today BLUE MAGIC and Ted Wizard Mills have reunited as "The Real Deal" Blue Magic featuring Ted Wizard Mills. They are once again in concert seeking to to be amoung the very best in classic R&B music.

Blue Magic - What's Come Over Me



What’s wrong with my mind
What’s come over me
I thought I saw your face
Wearing a smile, dimple on the side

What’s come over me
(What’s come over me)
What’s come over me
(What’s come over me)

What’s wrong with my ears
They’re deceiving me
I thought I heard you speak
Calling my name, I must be insane, I just can’t explain

What’s come over me
(What’s come over me)
What’s come over me
(What’s come over me)

Don’t tell me I’ve stumbled upon you
Or is my mind in a daze
For this can’t be as real as I want it
For you let me go, then went way

Some kind of feelin’
(What’s come over me)

Just look at me now, seems like I’m floating on a cloud
Oh, what could this be

What’s come over me
(What’s come over me, over me, come over me)
What’s come over me
(Over me)

Over and over, baby
(What’s come over me)
What’s come over me
What’s come over me
(Over me, come over me, over me)
(Ah...ah...)

You see, I must have gone through some changes when I kissed your picture
And hey, my mind just keeps on wondering when you only left me yesterday
I’ve never been to heaven, instead I spent the night with you
Maybe that’s the reason I don’t know what to do
What’s come over me

What’s come over me
(Over me, come over me, over me)
What’s come over me

Over and over, baby
(What’s come over me, over me, over me)
And I can’t break free
What’s come over me
Over and over and over and I just can’t sleep
(What’s come over me, over me, came over me, over me)
Tell me, tell me what’s come over and over, baby
(What’s come over me, over me, over me)

Blue Magic - Stop To Start



The very first time I looked at you
Since that day that's all I can do
So when I say that we're through

I only stop
So we could start all over again
I only stop
So we could start all over again
I only stop

Remember the day that I made you cry
When I told you goodbye
It was only her and I

I only stop
So we could start all over again
I only stop
So we could start all over again
I only stop

When things get rough, here's what we'll do
Kiss and make up, let's keep our love new
So when I say that we're through, oh,oh

I only stop
So we could start all over again (Ooh)
I only stop
So we could start all over again
('Cause I love you, baby)

I only stop (Oh, oh)
So we could start all over again
(So we can start all over, ooh)
I only stop
So we could start all over again
(Can't you see that I love you)

I only stop (Oh, oh)
So we could start all over again
('Cause I need you, baby)
I only stop (Oh, oh)
So we could start all over again

Blue Magic - Answer To My Prayer



Love is the answer to my prayer
Don't you ever leave me
I swear that you are the answer to my prayer
I prayed for a lot of thing's to come my way
You came and you brightened up my
Darkest days
You are the one that I've been waiting for
I cross my heart my love for you is pure
Cause love is the answer to my prayer
Don't you ever leave me
I swear that you are the answer to my prayer

I was such a lonely guy always alone
The blues were my only friend but now they're gone
I never knew that love could be so grand
You changed my life now I'm a happy man
Cause love is the answer to my prayer
Don't you ever leave me
I swear that you are the answer to my prayer

Love is the answer to my prayer
Don't you ever leave me
I swear that you are the answer to my prayer
Don't you ever leave me
I swear that love is the answer to my prayer
I swear that you are the answer to my prayer
Don't ever leave me

Blue Magic - Guess Who
Jerry Fuller/John Hobbs/Collin Raye



I hear your favorite music on the jukebox
And right away I know that you are here
You always pick a time
Just when I think my mind is clear you reappear
And once again you've got me in your power
This time I hope it's not a brief romance
'Cause it's too late to run
You've got me thinking one slow dance is worth a chance

Then that old blue magic still works like a charm
As if you never even left these aching arms
You put a spell on me I guess I'll always be hypnotized
By that blue magic in your eyes

Though I should run and hide from this illusion
Your smile is so much quicker than my pride
There's something up your sleeve
That makes my heart believe inside
This carpet ride might lift us up and fly us to forever
But up 'til now its all been slight of hand
I've got to face the fact one look and
I'm right back at your command

'Cause that old blue magic still works like a charm
As if you never even left these aching arms
You put a spell on me I guess I'll always be hypnotized
By that blue magic in your eyes

Yes, you put a spell on me I guess I'll always be hypnotized
By that blue magic.. that old blue magic... that blue magic in your eyes
