Review.- Will to Power is an American dance music group led by music producer, remixer, and DJ Bob Rosenberg. The group had several notable chart hits in the late '80s and early '90s, most notably 1988's "Baby I Love Your Way/Freebird Medley (Free Baby)", a medley of Peter Frampton's "Baby, I Love Your Way" and Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Free Bird", which was a Billboard #1 smash.
In 1985, Rosenberg was working at Miami's newly-formed dance music radio station "Hot 105" as one of the nation's first "On Air" radio-mix DJs. Rosenberg also produced remixes and medleys of different hits which became popular in their own right on the station. He was hired by 2 Live Crew to provide cuts for their Miami Bass album, billed as "King of the Edits."
In 1987, Rosenberg joined with Dr. J and Suzi Carr under the first Will to Power lineup. Their first effort, "Dreamin'" became a popular regional dance song of that summer. It quickly climbed the charts on radio stations such as New York City's Hot 103, San Francisco's KMEL, and Miami's Power 96 (where it became the number-one song of the year staying in the top five for over thirty weeks). Power 96's Program Director, Bill Tanner, stated that "Dreamin" was the biggest pop song in South Florida history (at that time).
"Dreamin'" may have been the biggest local record of all-time -- and that includes all the great 1965-70 local hits such as "Girl I Got News For You" (1 week at #1) and "Stoned Cowboy" (3 weeks at #1). Certainly it's the only one that was designated as the #1 song of the year on a year-end survey. Bob, I know the record was dedicated to Robin. but did her tragedy also inspire the writing of the song?
Their debut album Will To Power included their three number-one hits on the Hot Dance Club Play chart: 1987's "Dreamin'", 1988's "Say It's Gonna Rain" and 1989's "Fading Away". Ironically, it was a ballad tacked onto the album, "Free Baby", that became their most successful single.
By 1990's Journey Home, Will To Power was a duo consisting of Rosenberg and vocalist Elin Michaels. Journey Home got Billboard Magazine's highest rating and the LP produced a Top 10 hit with a ballad: this time a remake of 10cc's "I'm Not in Love." The follow-up single was a re-make of the disco hit "Boogie Nights." Epic Records and Rosenberg had artistic differences and Epic did not release any further singles from the album.
1996 saw the release of Will to Power's third album, Love Power, which was a compilation of hits and favorites from the first two albums.
Rosenberg went back into the studio in 2004, and in 2005 released Spirit Warrior on Straight Blast Records. Rosenberg called on such contributors as singers Gioia Bruno (of Exposé), Donna Allen, Siddy Betancourt, sax player Ed Calle, and guitarist Gary King. The first dance single was a medley of "Spirit Warrior" and the Will to Power version of Gil Scott-Heron's "The Bottle." Another single was "Dreamin' (Again)," with Bruno on vocals and Rosenberg performing a laid back rap. This release went to Number One within 4 weeks on the industry magazine, "DJ Times" Dance Chart and also on most Record Pool and club charts in 2005. Althought the song was not promoted or released to radio it went to #1 for 2 weeks on notable Dance Station, WMPH.
In March 2006, renowned dance remixer/producer Giuseppe D. provided remixes for Will To Power's Spirit Warrior - The Remixes EP.
