I remember this. (But "Walking On Sunshine immediately came to mind.) I remember that the group was from England too. Forgot all about them.
Oh man, I have not thought about taht jam in YEARS. Jeez, remember when you could take a song like this for granted?
Man, it's pretty depressing when a cut from 1981 is prefaced with "you old folks might remember..."
LL sampled this joint as well.My memory tells me there was a Larry Levan mix of this also.
Jeez, remember when you could take a song like this for granted?Yep, dude. Back then, even the one-off hits were solid. It used to be a joy to listen to the radio.
I'm born in 1984, but I LOVE the "old school" lol I listen to The Groove (60s, 70s, and 80s r&b) on XM Radio, so they play this song ALOT! I was wondering if one day can you do an article on Archie Bell & The Drells?! :D They're from my hometown (Houston) thanks and LOVE your blog!
^ Thanks for that, houstongirl!I'll have to figure up a reason to stream "Soul City Walking."
On yes, I remember this... This was THEE jam! I just found a nice copy of this LP like a month ago, too...Between Central Line, Junior and Imagination, Black Britain was really putting it out there in the early 80s!
^ You're definitely right about Junior and Imagination.
Speaking of "Imagination," I added "Burnin' Up" to my playlist a couple of months ago. Don't know how I could've left it off. :-/My favorite Black Brit act from the 80s was "Loose Ends." :worship:
yeah, i'm old folks (i was 23 years old in 1981) this was a club banger back in the day in Southern Cali...Inglewoooood!
