General Caine

General Caine

American funk group, led by Mitch McDowell.

They signed with Groove Time Records in 1978, releasing two albums: “Let Me In” (1978) and “Get Down Attack” (1980). The group then moved to Tabu Records. The third album entitled “Girls” featured the hit song “For Lovers Only” which was used by the radio station WZAK in Cleveland, Ohio, as a theme song for their late night segment with the same title. Their debut single for the Tabu label and the fourth album “Dangerous” with many song writing chores, were done by Johnny Guitar Carson. After a brief appearance at Capitol Records with one single released called “Where’s The Beef?”, a slimmed down version of the group with new writers and producers signed a recording contract with Motown Records in the mid-1980s, subsequently renamed to General Kane.
