Jam and Lewis Era

The S.O.S. Band resurrected their careers on their fourth LP, On the Rise, by handing the production reins over to Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis took over the production chores. Boosted by hit singles "Just Be Good to Me" and beat-box ballad "Tell Me If You Still Care," On the Rise became the S.O.S. Band’s second gold album. The album helped popularize the now-classic sound of the Roland TR-808 drum machine. (Photo: Tabu Records)
