Junior - Mama Used To Say (American Mix) b/w Mama Used To Say (American Mix Instrumental) (1981) - single

London-born Junior Giscombe started his musical career working with popular British black music band Linx between 1980-1982. A one-off 1980 single enjoyed some popularity in clubs in the UK and France, prompting then Phonogram A&R executive Roger Ames to track him down, resulting in a contract with the company in the UK and releases on Mercury Records.
Of the first two tracks he recorded for the label, Ames picked “Mama Used To Say” and within months, Junior had landed a Top 30 hit single in the U.S., becoming the first British black music artist to appear on the popular American TV show, Soul Train and essentially the first such artist to achieve a major chart breakthrough in the U.S. Now a classic anthem, “Mama Used To Say” was also a Top 10 UK hit and prompted Junior to complete his first album, “Ji” .
