Guilty was Yarbrough & Peoples' best album. Issued in late 1985, the LP was ample proof that the duo could come through on both dance cuts and slow jams. The gritty funky title track, not the Alexander O'Neal hit, was a number 2 R&B hit and has one of Alisa Peoples' best vocals. Produced and co-written by labelmates Jimmy Hamilton and Maurice Hayes of Prime Time (the number 22 R&B-charting "I Owe It To Myself"). Hamilton and Hayes did the follow-up, the rousing number 6 R&B smash, "I Wouldn't Lie." The third single was the delicate ballad, "Wrapped Around Your Finger." Other highlights were the breezy ballad, "I'll Give Anything to Have You Back" and the snarlingly funky "Anytime." Some of Guilty's tracks are on the 1997 Polygram CD, The Best of Yarbrough & Peoples. ~ Ed Hogan
