Ramsey Lewis – This Ain’t No Fantasy (1985)

First post and we have a Shep Pettibone gem from 1985,  Ramsey Lewis is an American jazz pianist and keyboardist who began his long recording career in 1956.  Ramsey released his soul/jazz album “Fantasy” in 1985 which included a contribution by Maurice White who had recorded with Ramsey in the mid to late 60’s before heading off to create Earth, Wind and Fire in 1969.

The only single released from the “Fantasy” album was “This Ain’t No Fantasy” on a US Columbia Recordings 12″ and is one of the great forgotten remixes from Mr. Pettibone
