At the risk of sounding forward, I have been I have been madly, deeply, truly in love with your music since I first heard "Shake you down".  Whew!!  Every time I hear it, I actually experience intense visceral feelings.  Must have known you in a past life. 
Seriously,  your music has been consistently entertaining.  By the way, superb cover of "How Deep Is Your Love?"
Here's to many more!

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

Where are you from? Berkeley, CA

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

On February 11th I launched the first website for my business.  I celebrated by drinking "Arnold Palmer strawberry half and half iced tea and lemonade." and listening to Anita Baker.  I browsed through the list of artists that run down the right side of the screen on Youtube, and saw Gregory Abbott's "Shake You Down" and I had to hear it.  As I listened I asked myself "Where is he now" and googled him and long story short found his site. I came back today to find JazzNet 247.

I am a big fan of music..esp  an artist who can hold a note singing a slow-jam..and you Gregory Abbott, sure have been blessed with that fabulous falsetto, I will never get tired of hearing. If you ask my friends & family too..they will say, I spend my days & nights..just playing your songs,, so much, that I find myself not doing anything productive, other than reading books. Something, I am obsessed with. I've been told "I read too much". But with earphones on listening to.. a nice slow jam & reading a book..its my favorite thing to do.  And only a bookworm can understand..That is my remedy all the way to heaven.(smiley) Okay, have to go "Wrap It Up"..where is my book?..I am outta here...Call me Karly..a fan For-life.

reply: Thank you Karly.There's nothing wrong with reading a lot.... I'm one of those people too. Take care.

Where are you from? Jamaica..My parents homeland. I was born in Miami. Spent most of my life in Jamaica. Move to NY at age 20. Attended NYU. Now I work with Drew & Gary

Comments:
Not only are my co-workers & my employers fans of yours..so are my parents. So I grew up with your music while living in Jamaica, And when i started to work i felt right at home. My parents always wonder, why you never did any concerts in the US..after Shake You Down. i don't think my parents know about this Guestbook. I will have to educate them, on my next trip to Jamaica.I remember, when they got the Drop Your Mask cd..we were in Miami and my Mom was searching on Youtube for the videos for those songs. And she's still looking for current cds from you. Mr Abbott.
I think her favorite song is Rhythm & Rhyme. I like Follow, Handyman, and the ones with the Reggae beat. You also did one with a kinda Soca rhythm. I think it was Rhyme & Reason. Now that is the one you should have done a video,,showing off the Islands..Mine & Yours (Jamaica & Antigua)
Okay..I am out..Hope you like what I wrote
One Love
Keisha Wong

reply: I am always moved when I hear that both parents and their children enjoy my music. Thank you for writing in and letting me know. Blessings.

Dear Gregory
By now you should figure out what family I am from. We are all over the world.  Not so much USA..but I am here visiting my youngest child in College..studying Architecture at Southern  California.  At the moment Brent & I are in Vegas...our favorite vacation city. Now that we are both retired from our professional world..although we both freelance as lecturers at the Universite de Luxembourg. His subjects  are; Architecture/Economy/Finance..and mine are Marketing & International Studies..all Multilingual.  

I'm aware of your early years as a teacher... and we always wonder if you have any regrets leaving it behind. I can tell you love to be educated and I'm sure you read a lot..(like a book-a-day)...
Being a teacher was/is my parents only dream for their children. Only 4 out of the 9..made it to that mountain top. But  2 out of the other 5..got married to teachers.
OK..Mr Abbott..I did my thing...
I wish you & your family... much happiness. 
From Camelia Pagan  (my parent are Tim & Daffodil Churnac...my sister is Pet..music is her thing)  You would be impressed if you heard her sing "Wrap it Up"..which is my faves from your CD. Brent likes Miracles, Reunion & Season Change...also the new song Rock You Gently.  Did you write those songs?

reply: I have no regrets about not teaching any longer but I did enjoy it.... and  I do still read a lot. Tell Brent that I did indeed write the songs you mentioned. And thank you for your well wishes.
