Lionel Richie, Tuskegee, 2012 My first trip to America was marred by only one thing: I could not find a vinyl copy of Tuskegee, Lionel Richie’s long-threatened country album of duets. It was nowhere to be found. So I did something no one ever does anymore: I bought a CD. I had to. It’s the LION! Lionel. My man.
