XBS Loves this record. Its one of those one-dollar-freebee-practically-brand-new-vinyl delights that only the old record store can offer.

On another note this was originally issued on SOLAR records, that’s Sound of Los Angeles Records. SOLAR was founded by Soul Train’s Dick Griffey and Don Cornelius and was responsible for acts like: DynastyLakesideMidnight StarKlymaxxCallowayThe Deele, and Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis.

XBS is so infatuated with the 80’s urban territory sometimes that we even get worried!  It’s finding great electronic sounds in a catchy, fun, and well put together package that we love.  The records from back then come off of the turntable like an explosion.  Love the Simmons, Love the Bar Kays style breaks and Love the outfits.  So Crayola, so Future Shock, and SO Androgynous!

Also sprinkled with those great funky Prince-isms evident in all electro funk of the 1980-1985 time period.
