Comment (by Wallofsound):
Well this is certainly a blast from the past for me. This is a UK funk and soul band who at this time were based in Birmingham in the English West Midlands. I saw them quite a few times around the time of the release of this record. You’ve made my wife very happy because she’s asked me to digitise this record many times and it’s down the bottom of a very tall pile. Jim Simpson, who produced this, is still active in the Birmingham music industry, but I’ve no idea what happened to the band the members themselves.
Thanks for the memories, guys.
