Shelter Records: I'm On Fire

We finish off our Fourth Week Label feature of Shelter Records with a 1975 single by the Dwight Twilley Band. “I’m on Fire” would be the world’s introduction to the band which was generally considered a duo. Twilley played keyboards, guitar, and sang while Phil Seymour contributed vocals, bass, and drums. Credited as their lead guitarist, Bill Pitcock was not considered an official member of the band.

“I’m on Fire” peaked at #16 during August 1975 and would later appear on the band’s debut album, “Sincerely,” released in 1976. Oister, listed as producer, was actually Twilley and Seymour and was the band's name in an earlier incarnation.  Seymour left Dwight Twilley to pursue a solo career in 1978 and had moderate success with the song “Precious to Me” in 1981.
