After the discovery of Prince, Moon went in search of the next musical sensation to come out of Minneapolis. Auditioning talent with his writing partner John Rivers they came across the then unknown singer named Alexander O’Neal and signed his to a production contract. Moon and Rivers wrote and produced 15 songs for the singer but before they ever released the songs, the producers for Janet Jackson asked to take over the production contract. Alex went on to sell double platinum and became the next musical sensation out of the Twin Cities. Now, almost 40 years later, John Rivers with permission from Moon, has just released 10 of the original songs from the original Alexander O’Neal demo tape on a CD entitled: The Lost Studio Tapes available for purchase at CDbaby or you can hear one of the songs from this album named “Sensation” by clicking here.
