After Cameo's 7th album, Knights of the Sound Table (1981), Blackmon reduced the group from 10 members to a 5-member unit. This change was made due to the economics of the music industry at that time. Blackmon relocated the group from New York to Atlanta, Georgia.
With their core of five members, they released the album Alligator Woman, a fusion of funk, new wave and a synthesizer-driven sound (compared to their previous albums which had more horn arrangements).
Atlanta Artists history
The album Style followed in 1983 as the first release for Atlanta Artists. This release continued their new musical direction by adding electronic drums to their production. This new sound was a blueprint for their following albums.
- Tomi Jenkins - 1989 / Elektra
- Bobby Brown - 1986 / MCA
- The Reddings - 1985 / Polydor
- George Howard - 1990 / GRP
During Cameo's popular concert tours in the UK around the mid-1980s, Ca$hflow traveled along with them as a supporting act.
