Songwriter/producer/arranger/keyboardist Skip Scarborough's resumé lists the two number one R&B hits "Love Ballad" by LTD and Con Funk Shun's "Ffun," "Can't Hide Love" -- a hit for both Earth, Wind & Fire and Creative Source, EWF's "Love's Holiday" and "Earth Wind and Fire," the Emotions' "Don't Ask My Neighbors," Mother Finest's "Love Changes," Phyllis Hyman's "Answer Is You," Anita Baker's "Giving You the Best That I've Got," Bobbi Humphrey's "Lover to Lover," and Patti Labelle's "Music Is My Way of Life," "It's Alright With Me," "Come What May," and "Love and Learn." Scarborough produced the classic 1978 chill-out album, Message From the Magic for Atco Records soft soul vocal group Blue Magic ("Sideshow," "Three Ring Circus"). Scarborough was the musical director for the 5th Dimension-flavored vocal group Creative Source created by 5th Dimension member Ron Townsend. They charted with the original version of Scarborough's "Can't Hide Love" in summer 1973 from their self-titled debut for Clarence Avant's Detroit, MI-based label Sussex Records. He played keyboards on their records as well as on Donald Byrd's 1975 LP Places and Spaces and 1976 LP Caricatures -- both on Blue Note -- and Azar Lawrence's 1976 Prestige LP People Moving.
