People Like Us - People Like Us (Album) 1988 Hi-NRG Disco 80's




PEOPLE LIKE US were a High-Energy Dance Group from Johannesburg,
South Africa.
They had many hit dance records around the world in the mid 80's, mostly released internationally via PASSION RECORDS in London.
Their music was well produced, of a high quality with intelligently written lyrics (especially for Dance Music at the time).

CINDY DICKINSON was the key vocalist. She has an outstanding voice and really made the People Like Us sound work - but was not always given proper credit by original group founders.
Unfortunately original group founder Paul Crossley dies of an AIDS related illness around the time of their main success. Cindy Dickinson (now Cindy Guselli) lives in Durban, South Africa with well known East Coast Radio DJ husband, Dave Guselli.

People Like Us also had hits with the songs DELIVERENCE, MIDNIGHT LOVER (US Dance Chart #1),and FIGHTING FOR OUR LIVES.

  10. This is definitely a platinum classic. Thanks so much for featuring People Like Us on your blog.

    I was mortified to learn that Cindy married Dave; the lucky sod. I only wish she would perform again.
