LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 11

The first album by The Tom Tom Club – the strange little offshoot of the Talking Heads that featured Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz – and one of the most influential records of the early 80s in both the mainstream and the avant pop underground! Legendary status aside, the album a weird mix of the Talking Heads' child-like rock with some innovative early hip hop influenced grooves – and is famous with hip hoppers for the track "Genius Of Love", a track that was quickly picked up and covered at the time. Includes "Wordy Rappinghood", "As Above So Below", "On On On On", "Lorelei", and "Genius Of Love".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

An obscure little funky group from Detroit, one with a tight ensemble sound that's very much in the Earth Wind & Fire mode – complete with a really great horn section, plenty of bass-heavy grooves a the bottom, and a relatively spiritual feel that comes through strongly on the best tracks! ...
