Releases Under Alternate Names

In 1991, as Clivillés + Cole, the duo released an LP-single A-side featuring a cover of U2's "Pride (In the Name of Love)", but it was the B-side "Deeper Love", featuring vocals by Deborah Cooper (a long time Clivillés and Cole vocalist) and Paul Pesco that proved to be a hit, peaking at No. 15 in the UK. Deborah Cooper performed "Deeper Love" on Saturday Night Live with C+C Music Factory. It was also covered by Aretha Franklin with production by Clivillés + Cole. Both sides charted on the Billboard Hot 100 in the spring of 1992: "A Deeper Love" peaked at #44, while "Pride (In The Name Of Love)" reached #54. In 1992 as Clivillés + Cole an album was released called "Greatest Remixes Vol. 1" featuring remixes of other artist songs by the duo. The video for these songs was actually one long featurette, beginning with "Deeper Love" and then continuing into "Pride (In The Name Of Love)" halfway through the video. The video was labelled "Pride (A Deeper Love)". Some networks preferred to show the videos separately while others played the whole length.

In 1992, the duo assembled The S.O.U.L. S.Y.S.T.E.M., only one song of this group was ever released. A special uptempo vocal club remix was released as a promo single by Arista Records.

Clivillés and Cole later released a new single under the moniker The 28th Street Crew called O in 1994. In 1994 Clivillés and Cole produced a song for El General "Las Chicas", which borrowed heavily from the song "Boriqua Anthem" on the "Anything Goes" album.

Since then, Robert Clivillés has produced on his own including the membership of the group MVP as well as one last album release in 1996 on Columbia under the moniker Robi Rob's Club World and various other releases under different names.

Famous quotes containing the words names, releases and/or alternate:

    I have known a German Prince with more titles than subjects, and a Spanish nobleman with more names than shirts.
    Oliver Goldsmith (1728–1774)

    We need a type of theatre which not only releases the feelings, insights and impulses possible within the particular historical field of human relations in which the action takes place, but employs and encourages those thoughts and feelings which help transform the field itself.
    Bertolt Brecht (1898–1956)

    Boswell, when he speaks of his Life of Johnson, calls it my magnum opus, but it may more properly be called his opera, for it is truly a composition founded on a true story, in which there is a hero with a number of subordinate characters, and an alternate succession of recitative and airs of various tone and effect, all however in delightful animation.
    James Boswell (1740–1795)
