Leon F. Sylvers III wrote the first hit ("Wish That I Could Talk to You") for his family's singing group the Sylvers, his brother Foster Sylvers' Top Ten R&B/Top 30 pop debut single "Misdemeanor," and a slew of hits for artists signed to Dick Griffey's Solar Records. The Sylvers, whose million-selling single "Boogie Fever" was a number one R&B hit in March 1976 and number one pop hit in May 1976, were flippantly called "the West Coast answer to the Jackson 5." A more accurate overall comparison would be with the 5th Dimension. Their harmonies were quite similar as well as the timbre of their core material and, like the 5th Dimension, the Sylvers had a natural middle America appeal. Leon Sylvers III collaborated with Leon Sylvers IV on "Love Online" and a track on Guy's Guy III CD issued on January 25, 2000.
