Windjammer formed in New Orleans, Louisiana, U.S.A. During 1977, Kevin McLin broke into a hotel and gave Tito Jackson, of The Jacksons, a Windjammer demo tape while riding an escalator. Two years later Jacksons' father and manager Joe Jackson signed them to his management company. A debut single 'Stay' sold well around New Orleans before the group were signed by MCA in 1982. In 1983, their first album 'Windjammer' was released. In 1984, 'Windjammer II' featured 'Tossing And Turning', a UK Top 20 hit. The song was remixed by Stock Aitken Waterman on the 12" under the banner The Funky Sisters. The song was remixed and re-released by Debut Records in 1989.
