Oh! Gregory, I consider 'U Understand' such a pleasant Gift TO ME! Your voice as a whisper touch my very core It was my evening of serendipity. You seem to know my weakness for such things that lots of people overlook. I felt that I walked with you on the beach watching the Sun rise in the quitness of the early morning with the Different colors dancing upon the waters. You are watching me as I am enjoying the scene and I'm looking at you yet knowing how you're enjoying it even more.

I SIT ALONG PLAYING-U Understand over and over again because I love your voice. You are a real GENIUS. Are you also psychic? Or maybe the word is perceptive. Well you sure seem to: Understand me.

Can I be this BEST FRIEND OF YOURS? I LOVE TO BE YOUR BFF. YOU CAN CALL ANY TIME WITH ANY THING THAT YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT. IT WILL BE BETWEEN YOU AND ME I'M VERY DISCRET AND PRIVATE.

I appreciate you so much and have so much Love and Respect of you. Your truly, XOXO

I went on YouTube to play some music, I watched some 80's music and from the videos that kept popping up, I saw "Shake you down" I remembered the good old days and so watched it and after that I watched "I'll prove it to you", I couldn't get enough of it and watched it like 10 times over. Then I felt nostalgic and wanted to know more about Gregory. I went to Wikipedia to read about him and it led me to this site. I was 10 yrs old in 1987 and I remember very well how "Shake you down was always on radio and Tv. I am happy to know that Gregory is well and still looking hot as ever! You are a living legend and this is wishing you more blessed years ahead.

Hoy he revivido en mi corazón un gran momento de felicidad. Yo tenía unos 11 años cuando salió "shake you down en España". Madre mía no recordaba este bellísimo tema. Por aquel entonces no podía entender las palabras sólamente comprendía la belleza de la melodía y de la voz. Hoy puedo entender su mensaje de amor tan dulce, sensual y lleno de profundidad. No he podido parar de escucharla, es PERFECTA para mí. Todo lo que mi corazón necesitaba oír. Me gustaría tanto poder asistir à un concierto en vivo. Seguramente el universo un día me lo concederá. Confío en ello. De momento voy a escuchar estos lindos temas y esta bonita voz que parece que conozco desde siempre. Gracias por existir. Namasté

TRANSLATION:

Today I relived in my heart a great moment of happiness.

I was about 11 when you came and sang "Shake You Down in Spain".

My mother did not remember this beautiful time. As I was young, I could not understand the words only the beauty of melody and voice. Today I can understand your message of love so sweet, sensual and full of depth.

I could not stop listening to it, it's perfect for me. Everything my heart needed to hear.

I would so love to attend a live concert. Surely one day the universe will grant me. I trust it.

For now I will listen these messages and this beautiful voice that always seems to know.

Thank you for existing.

Namaste

Monica,

What a beautiful memory you shared. I am glad to make the online acquaintance of someone with as sensitive spirit as yours. Musicians have that same spirit I think... and my family and I try and cultivate that as much as possible in our lives... Blessings My Dear. Gregory

I was first introduced to you in 1986 as a college freshman.  I hung proudly that beautiful album cover that featured the Shake you down song. As I was preparing my own child for their freshmen college year, I spoke fondly of the feel good songs that took away the miss home blues.  It started me on my journey back to you and the music of my youth.

Hello there, After reading your bio, I was quite surprised that you wrote songs for Ms. Snow, Whitney. Didn't realize you were into that part of the business but I guess you have to cover all bases in this  business. I too sing and perform with a group called "Soul Club". We've appeared at the Apollo, being together for so many yrs, we just did not get the break we truly wanted. I hope you continue on with your writing/producing and may the Lord continue to bless you.

Hello Gregory

Just carrying out an evening web search instead of watching the boring TV.
My memory recalled your great recording "Shake you down" from almost 30 years ago. One of my all time favourites. 
Seems like only yesterday. Is time speeding up? 

The week in 1986 that you performed on BBC Top of Pops was first we owned a video recorder and I believe that I still have the tape in my loft unless the kids taped wrestling over it.

If my memory serves me right, Orange Juice Jones, Walking in the rain was a video also on that same show.  

I see you are in England Touring in UK later this year and by coincidence one of the dates falls on my birthday.   

I'm going to seek permission from my wife to book trip to see you and all the other great acts on the bill. 

Have a great UK tour. Best regards  Steve

reply:
Thanks for writing in Steve. Time is definitely speeding up! Hope you get permission. Best. Gregory

Comments:
Mr. Abbott,

I had the pleasure of meeting you when you and your wife returned my wallet to me on May 28, Thursday, at my house. I just want to thank you for your magnificent gesture. It occurred to me that others should know about it too, so I contacted Leah Garchik of SF Chronicle. Today (Tuesday, June 2), the following appeared in her column:

_________
Upon returning home from an excursion in Berkeley, Hung-Hsi Wu discovered that his wallet — containing driver's license, credit card, cash and IDs, was missing. "After 30 minutes of frantic searching and calling, I was resigned to three days of misery trying to replace all the things that define my life, when the doorbell rang." The person returning the wallet was R&B singer Gregory Abbott, whose big record was "Shake You Down," and that is exactly what he didn't do.
He peered at Wu closely, to make sure he matched the photo IDs in the wallet, and said he'd found the wallet in a supermarket parking lot, and returned it. "Seeing the smile on your face is my reward," said Abbott.
_________

I understand that you are at present touring the United Kingdom. I wish you great success on this tour, and thank you again.

Hung-Hsi Wu
