Erotic Exotic

Erotic Exotic were a freestyle\dance group from the late 80s that consisted of members Eric Tallman, Al Perez, Mario Gil, Gus Caveda, John Aguilo, Eddie De La Cruz, Rick Vieira, and Dee Whitcomb. The group formed in 1985.
In 1986, the group released their first single, "Take Me As I Am" which peaked at #36 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music\Club Play Singles chart, making it their highest chart appearance to date.
Their second single, "(I Can) Give You What You Need" peaked at #42 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music\Club Play Singles chart in 1987.
During that same year, Erotic Exotic released their third single, "L.O.V.E." which peaked at #48 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music\Maxi-Singles Sales chart.
In 1988, the group released their fourth single, "If My Love Doesn't Suit Ya" which didn't appear to chart at all, but a music video was made for the song.

In the early 90s, Erotic Exotic released two more singles "Your Eyes" (in 1990) and "Unfunkable" (in 1992), but neither of them made the charts. By 1994, the group had disbanded. 

In December of that same year, Eric Tallman passed away. It is unknown what the other members are up to today.

Let me say you, that you are the one that has a information about this group. It is so difficult find information about them. I have used your information for a program radio in my country, thank you.
