Though interrupted by a few years, Skool Boyz was a continuation of Flavor; the same members -- Stan Sheppard (lead), Chauncey Matthews (vocals and keyboards), and Fred Brown (vocals and guitar) -- comprised Flavor, with William “Billy” Sheppard (vocals and bass guitar), Stan’s brother, the new kid on the block. Stan sung with Triple S with Steve and Sterling Rice between his stints with Flavor and Skool Boyz. Billy and Stan are the sons of R&B legend Bill “Bunky” Sheppard.
At least two singles appeared on Destiny Records: “Can We Do It Again” occupied the A-side of their November 1981 debut and the B-side of their February 1982 parting shot, “This Feeling Must Be Real.” A short spell on Crossroad Records produced “Before You Go” (October 1983), followed by “Breakin’ Out” in 1984. A major break came in 1984 when Columbia Records took them on, but after four singles -- debuting with “Slip Away” -- and two albums, the situation dissolved disappointingly. Their self-produced debut album Skool Boyz had some fine ballads “Nothin’ Like a Slow Dance,” “Before You Go” (the Destiny single), “You Are the Best Thing in My Life,” and some rhythmic up-tempo numbers, but the sales didn’t equal the glowing reviews. The album, in part, was initially released on Destiny Records and contained, like a subsequent CBS album, new material and some from their Crossroad stint.
