This U.S. soul group was formed in a Brooklyn, New York high school in the early 80's by:
James 'D Train' Williams (lead vocals)
and Hubert Eaves III (keyboards, bass, drums and arrangements)
Attending High School in Brooklyn, New York, the pair began recording at the start of the Eighties.
D-Train earned their nickname from James Williams defensive tactics in the division and city championship football team.
James was a recognised member of the Erasmus High School Choral Club.
Having signed to the Epic / Prelude label, the group found greater success in the U.K. than in America.
The duo scored three U.K. Top 30 hits with 'You're The One For Me' (Dance chart number 1 in 1982), 'Music, Part 1' (in 1983 and containing the songs 'Keep Giving Me Love' and 'Are You Ready For Me') and 'You're The One For Me (Remix)' in 1985.
Their own version, of the Dionne Warwick standard 'Walk On By', was highly popular on the U.K. Soul Scene.
D-Train's biggest U.S. hit was the BilIboard R & B Top 5 single 'Something's On Your Mind' in 1983.
The group went their seperate ways in 1985 with James Williams pursuing a solo career.
His three notable hits were 'Misunderstanding' (number 10 in 1986), 'Oh, How I Love You (Girl)' (number 22 in 1987), and 'In Your Eyes' (number 11 in 1988, taken from the album of the same name).
