Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:30am JtotheK:

@cecile - i also really enjoy that era of rap (unsure if "disco-rap" is an official genre, but that is appropriate...). i recently dug out a book by Freddy Fresh "The Rap Records" which covers small label rap records of that era. (aka "Random Rap" records.) i've had the book for years, but never got too deep into it ... i bounce around between books about records a lot.
Avatar 10:30am Claw!:

hahaha... the Nutley Brass crack me up
Avatar 10:31am Cecile:

I have sung this song with my husband before I've had surgery.
