Musical Interlude: Diamonds (1987)

A & M Records frontman Herb Alpert got back on the charts in 1987 with "Diamonds", off the CD, "Keep Your Eye on Me". It hit #1 on the R & B chart, and peaked at #5 on the Hot 100, on the strength of one of Alpert's artists contributing vocals. Heard, but not seen in the video, is none other than Janet Jackson, who used a body double for certain scenes. Lisa Keith is the other vocalist, and the two collaborated again with Alpert on the follow-up single, "Making Love in the Rain".

Enjoy Thanksgiving, and we'll see you on Friday.
