In 1979, Sheila & the Black Devotion made the song they would be remembered for. Produced by Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards, who both were in Chic, it would be one of their bigger hits. Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards were successful with the sound they made with Chic, and were asked to use their knowledge in the production of other artists, such as Sister Sledge and Diana Ross. Sheila & the Black Devotion were, till their co-operation, a group which did not have a lot of success. This changed with the single Spacer, which managed to get top 10 positions over the world, and a number 18 position in the UK. Later, the song would be sampled for Crying In The Discotheque by Alcazar. Enjoy
