Bustin' Loose (parts 1 & 2)

12-inch (Item 62604) Source, 1979 — Condition: Very Good-
Just Sold Out!

12-inch, Vinyl record


4.50 11

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.

Sheila E's Prince-influenced hit, with a Part II on the flip that basically finds the band jamming on the groove for a bit longer. . . 12-inch, Vinyl record

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
