The legacy continues with dance/R&B hit maker Sybil – who was signed to Next Plateau Records in the United States. She began recording in 1986 with the release of her first single “Falling in Love”. Sybil soon enjoyed success by remaking Dionne Warwick’s hits “Don’t Make Me Over” and “Walk On By”, which were released in 1989 and 1990, respectively. The former became Sybil’s biggest hit in the US, peaking at No. 20,[2] and was a No. 1 hit in New Zealand. “Walk On By” is still, to date, the highest charting position for this Burt Bacharach/Hal David classic in the UK, peaking at No. 6. In January 1993, Sybil achieved her most successful hit in the UK charts by re-doing Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes’ “The Love I Lost” peaking at No. 3. In the US, “The Love I Lost” was released as a double A-side with the Sybil co-penned original “You’re The Love of My Life”.
