L.T.D. suffered quite a loss when Jeffrey Osborne, a jewel of a lead singer, left to pursue a solo career in 1980. For L.T.D., losing Osborne was like the Commodores losing Lionel Richie or Van Halen losing David Lee Roth it was a major blow, although not a fatal one. Osborne was replaced by two new lead vocalists: Leslie Wilson and Andre Ray, both of them talented, expressive soulsters who demonstrated that they could handle the job nicely. Many Osborne admirers greeted Love Magic, L.T.D.'s first post-Osborne album, with skepticism, but this 1981 LP is surprisingly successful.
