Fabulous Album Discography

Last update: April 20, 2010

Leon Ware Fabulous was a TK subsidiary whose only album release was Leon Ware's Inside Is Love [Fabulous 8500]. A single from the album, "What's Your Name" [Fabulous 748] made #42 on the R&B charts, starting its chart run in early December, 1979, and lasting until February, 1980. The followup single, "Inside Your Love" [Fabulous 749], did not chart.

Leon Ware, originally from Detroit, was a singer, songwriter, and producer. He was in the Romeos, a doo-wop group which also included famed Motown writer/producer Lamont Dozier, in the mid-1950s. In the 1960s, he worked for Motown doing various jobs, later moving to Bell Records for a time before setting out on his own about 1970. He wrote and produced Marvin Gaye's I Want You album for Tamla, wrote "I Wanna Be Where You Are" for Michael Jackson, and worked with Quincy Jones on his Body Heat album. He has worked with, written for, or produced many additional well-known artists.

Before signing with Fabulous, Ware had released albums on United Artists, Paramount, and Motown. After the Inside Is Love album, he released albums on Elektra, Sling Shot, Expansion, Kitchen, Blues Interaction, and Stax.

The Fabulous album label (far left, above) was blue with black lettering and "Fabulous" in hand-written script at the top of the label. The following text bends around the bottom of the label: "Distributed by T.K. Productions, 495 S.E. 10th Ct. Hialeah, Florida 33010". Singles (center, above) were white with a light green swirl on the left and right, and "FABULOUS RECORDS, INC." bending around the top edge of the label, beneath which is a black disc with a green eighth note centered in the disc. Promo discs (above at right) were white with black print, using the same design but without the green color.
