COLONEL ABRAMS - "TRAPPED" (1985)
By Mark Nobes, chief editor
Trapped always went down well in the clubs in the second half of the 80s, and reached #3 in the UK and #1 on the US Dance Chart in 1985. It was a song that was way ahead of its time and was lifted from Colonel Abrams self-titled debut album, which was released on the MCA label.
Sadly, the album was a bit of a flop, only reaching #75 in the US. It featured a mix of contemporary R&B and house music which, I guess, the public weren't quite ready for.Colonel Abrams only other UK hit was I'm Not Gonna Let You which reached #24. At least this saved him from being another 80s one hit wonder.
