From the transitional period when Chuck and co. were moving from the harder funk style of their Sussex days to the Go Go sound they'd help pioneer in DC, with a style that combines both, with a bottom heavy groove, wiry guitar, horn stabs and percolating percussion. This single features their massive hit in classic funky 45 style, parts 1 & 2, but stretched way out over both sides of a 12", with more than a few breakdowns, call and response choruses and getting taken to the bridge, over and over. . .  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Profile, 1985. Very Good+
One of those early Profile singles that somehow never made it on all the Mr. Magic or other Profile compilations. Maybe not quite as dope as the classic K-Rob track "I'm a Homeboy", but still captures that mid-80's big beat sound, along the lines of Word of Mouth. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Macola, 1986. Very Good-
The one and only worthwhile cut from these novelty rappers. "New York Rappers" an excellent parody cut that features impersonations of a lot of the big acts at the time. Their version of EPMD has the group falling asleep because they're rapping so slow! 12-inch, Vinyl record
