✨✧ FrantiqueStrut Your Funky Stuff (double a-side single) ... 12-inch
Philadelphia International, 1979. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
An obscure one on Philly International. The cut was actually recorded in France, and has more of a Euro disco groove than some of the other work on the label – but it's still a pretty nice funky club track, with female vocals and a bass-heavy groove. (Soul) 12-inch, Vinyl record

Smooth early 80s work from Patti – a bit over the top at times, but nicely restrained at others.
