Out Of Stock

12-inch, Vinyl record


4.80 11

A lesser-known number by Fonda Rae – but one that's still plenty darn nice, and proof that she was one of the best singers on the early 80s club scene! "Heobah" has a romping, thumping intro that's nice and spare – beats and a bit of lightly riffing guitar that really set the scene before Rae's vocals come into the mix with sing-song lyrics that eventually give way to a deeper sort of sound. The cut's got a really playful, almost poppy sort of style – but one that's never that commercial either. (Label has some marker, a sticker, and a light stain.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Alston/TK, 1978. Near Mint-
Classic early breakdance/breakbeat material! "Dance To The Drummer's Beat" was real stormer in the South Bronx back in the day, and a great bit of uptempo funk with congas – the break and chorus are both great, and the single's like finding a page in the history of hip hop book! ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
