The Great #ReggieLucas from Miles’ post “Corner” workouts, to crafting a slow jam classic (“The Closer I Get To You”) to the hits that gave #StephanieMills her post Wiz hits (“Sweet Sensation” “Never Knew Love Like This Before” “Put Your Body In It”) he parted with his longtime collaborator #Mtume in 82 just as “Juicy Fruit” was to send them (as a group and production unit) to new heights unknown. However his biggest achievement was being behind the boards for one Madonna Ciccone producing the hits that made her an instant star (entire album except “Everybody” & “Holiday”) although the sessions were tense filled (legendary #JellybeanBenitez’s post production magic on the boards gave the songs the appeal/youthful energy that was key to the songs “sticking” that shouldn’t be ignored). But Lucas, one of Miles’ KEY disciples played a MAJOR role in shaping 70s & 80s pop. Rest In Beats man.
