When extreme talent get together in one room, exceptional music is sure to be created.

Back in 1982 Billy Butler, Alan Harris an Al Johnson collaborated in Baltimore, Maryland. Bringing together three great musical minds, crafting stunningly uplifting 80's soulful dance.

To compliment Jay's urgent vocal delivery, the trio pull together a crew of provocative girls enriching the arrangement, opening the proceedings as they glide on warm thermals of considerate horns, keyboard, and unstated guitar picking, as glorious strings fill the air. All classily presented as a Jazz/Soul recording, brilliantly avoiding all temptations to fall into a crass cliché-crammed disco crowd-pleaser.

Totally soulful, as Jay Player's vocal darts in and out hitting the high notes when necessary but nothing is strained or forced. This is free flowing fluid soulful dance at its most exhilarating; all the elements seamlessly complimenting each other, as you'd expect from three soul men who know exactly how to create a superior dance recording and choosing the perfect voice to carry out their vision, putting the emphasis on soulful-dance.

Thankfully this inspirational dancefloor journey is extended on the flipside, including a most-magnificent bongo/string instrumental break, that those girls deliciously exploit all your erogenous zones with celestial choruses.

Two great sides, from Baltimore's finest guys at the controls.
