The verses for these tracks are based on various jump-roping rhymes, but the best parts are the goofy non-sense vocals, sort of like the Zoom language, that you'll recognize from the Cold Cut remix of "Paid In Full." All done over that 1980-era loping rollerskating style music. 12-inch, Vinyl record
An excellent groover from Fat Larry's Band – a tightly snapping 80s groove tune with a sweeet soulful edge, vamping along at a rhythm that's quite similar to "Help is On The Way", by the Whatnauts! 12-inch, Vinyl record
David Simmons is a Philly soul singer from way way back – part of that second wave of Philly 70s talent that broke on the WMOT label at the end of the decade, and still going surprisingly strong after all these years away from the studio! Simmons is part of this great generation of Philly soul talents who seem to be reemerging in recent years – directed in the studio by producer/arranger Butch Ingram – who, like Simmons, has matured nicely with age – and finds the right kind of groove to match the smooth, sophisticated style of David's vocals. The approach is a bit like later solo material from Teddy Pendergrass – in the best adult Philly mode – and titles include "Love Tonight", "The World Belongs To Me", "Yesterday's Song", "I'm In Love Again", "Holding Back", and "Hooked On You".

Philly soul man Bobby Eli arranged and produced this batch of righteous tracks for the early version of WMOT Productions in the city. The sound of the group is sort of a rumbling, slightly funky one – with ensemble vocals on a number of tracks, and a bass-heavy soul groove. Titles include "You're Not Him", "Telling It Like It Is", "Stone Cold Freak", "Love Shortage", and "One On One". LP, Vinyl record album
