Cassette - Motown 238). General Kane's second album tried the same strategy as its predecessor. It also landed one mild urban contemporary hit, but didn't establish Kane as a consistent attraction.

Subsequent releases mellowed General Kane’s approach without losing their commitment to the basic rap sound of the late 1980s. The group’s album Wide Open did include a romantic ballad, Close Your Eyes, which featured vocals from Cheryl McDowell and Danny Macon. Mitch McDowell was murdered in January 1992. General Kane’s catalogue remained in print through the efforts of their former producer, Grover Wimberly III, who runs his own label, Groove Time Records.

General Kane (known as General Caine before 1986) was an American music group fronted by Mitch McDowell (born Mitchell Leon McDowell on June 29, 1954, in San Bernardino, California; died January 22, 1992 in San Bernardino). McDowell took the professional name General Kane in tribute to an officer who had supported his artistic ambitions when he was at military school. After leaving that institution, he formed the group Booty People. They released one album for MCA Records. The group's album Wide Open did include a romantic ballad, "Close Your Eyes", which featured vocals from two of the group's less prominent members, Cheryl McDowell and Danny Macon. Mitch McDowell pursued a career in law enforcement as a bail bondsman after leaving the music industry. He was murdered in January 1992 along with a nephew, Akili John Davis, 18, who worked in his office.
