Sydney Joe Qualls (who is listed as Sidney Joe Qualis on some releases) was a southern-born soul singer who was heavily influenced by Al Green. Signed to Dakar Records in the early '70s, he made an impressive showing with singles such as "Run to Me," though by the end of the 1970s, on the Chi-Sound label, he'd begun moving toward a disco sound, which he sustained across several singles and an LP. ~ Bruce Eder, Rovi
