Robertson Treatment Syndicated Column (RTSC)- Edition 15, Issue 9 – A Conversation with Mega-Producer, Leon Sylvers
Throughout the mid-70’s, The Sylvers, were the golden group of pop and R&B. Much like the Jacksons and the Osmonds, the highly charismatic, singing family became a popular fixture responsible for chart-toppers like “Boogie Fever,” “Hot Line,” and “High School Dance,” among other hit singles. Just as the group reached the pinnacle of their success, the group’s leader [and its creative force], eldest brother, Leon, left the group to pursue producing opportunities with Solar Records. His departure triggered a creative crisis, which left the group without direction that caused them to disband in 1985.
