Colonel Abrams is the self-titled debut studio album by American musician, Colonel Abrams, released in 1985 through MCA Records. The album peaked at No. 13 on the R&B albums chart. It also reached No. 75 on the Billboard 200. The album features the singles "Trapped", which peaked at No. 20 on the Hot Soul Singles chart and No. 1 on the Hot Dance/Disco chart, and "I'm Not Gonna Let You", which reached No. 7 on the Hot Soul Singles chart and No. 1 on the Hot Dance/Disco chart.

Colonel Abrams straddled the category of love man and disco dancer on his debut album (with a touch of the preacher thrown in), and he was rewarded with four R&B chart hits: "Trapped" (number 20), "The Truth" (number 78), "I'm Not Gonna Let" (number seven), and "Over and Over" (number 68). All found the beat-heavy Abrams confidently emoting in a manly style borrowed from the young Teddy Pendergrass.

Over is the sixth studio album by the English singer and songwriter Peter Hammill, released on Charisma Records in April 1977. It was issued for the first time on CD on Virgin Records in the early 1990s, and was reissued again in a remastered version in 2006 with bonus tracks. The album details the break-up of a long-term relationship with a woman known as Alice.

Over And Over was a mighty-fine demonstration that Colonel Abrams could navigate his way beyond punchier dance floor imperatives. It’s a slick and beautiful R&B ballad that’s both in tune with other productions of the mid-’80s post-disco reality. and still very much him doing the thing he created. Colonel Abrams, "I'm Not Gonna Let" (MCA 1985). This is basically a sequel to Trapped, and some would say it’s even more irresistible. After a failed attempt to revive his career as a soul singer with a 1992 album on the Scotti Bros. Label, Colonel Abrams retreated to working as a feature vocalist for hire on house records throughout the rest of the ’90s. Even if his voice still stood out as ever, many of these said releases lacked the potential to re-establish him on a level worthy of his beginnings.
