Robbie Dupree "Steal Away" video.

Robbie Dupree (born Robert Dupuis on December 23, 1946 in Brooklyn, New York) is a U.S. singer/songwriter best known for his 1980 top ten pop hit "Steal Away."

Under the guidance of Peter Bunetta and Rick Chudacoff, Robbie Dupree moved to Los Angeles in the late 70s and recorded his Elektra debut, "Steal Away" in 1980. Off this album, single "Steal Away cracked" was US #6 and "Hot Rod Hearts" entered #15. We can note Robbie's long-time partnership with Bill LaBounty. Robbie Dupree was nominated for the Best New Artist Grammy Award in 1981. The successful recording team got together once again for 1981 follow up, "Street Corner Heroes".
Robbie Dupree's first album was his self-titled album, "Robbie Dupree."

This music video of "Steal Away" is a rare video of Robbie Dupree and his band from the early '80s. Robbie Dupree figured out that the video was shot for a show in Vancouver, Canada in 1980. Actually, it was Brian Ray who remembered the trip of the band there.

What an unabashed rip-off I felt this tune was of "What A Fool Believes",and let's face it---IT WAS!!!But as the years go by,and modern music in general gets shi__ier,this stuff seems like gold.

Who didn't try to imitate Led Zep or The Beatles?,Linda Ronstadt recycled everything she could,done with taste,it was the beat of the moment.It was good,it was awesome,people used to sing and play instruments without shaking their booties,it was honest music,good american music that everybody in the world still remember and treasure,everybody except americans.I wished I could have those videos to watch them over and over again.
