Noel/Noella - Silent Morning/Lonely Days (1987)



The song Silent Morning was released in 1987 on 4th & Broadway Records and went on to become a monster hit for Noel. The song was produced by Vito Bruno, Roman Ricardo and Paul Robb of Information Society fame. Remix credits went to "Little" Louie Vega and David Cole added some keyboard work.

Taking a page from the world of rap music, the song spawned one of the few, if only, "response" records in freestyle music. The song Lonely Days was released shortly thereafter by the aptly titled Noella. The latter was a Charlie "Rock" Jiminez production with edits by Carlos "After Dark" Berrios.

Bonus:
A remix of Silent Morning was issued on X-Mix Dance Series Vol. 19. It was done by Lenny Bertoldo and is one of the best house remixes of a freestyle song ever, IMHO.
