Kool & The Gang ~ Summer Madness ~ De-Lite ~ 1975
Pure class!

DJ Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince ~ Summertime ~ Jive ~ 1991

DJ Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince ~ Summertime peaked at number 8 over here as Summer turned into Autumn in 1991.
Jeff Townes and Will Smiths Grammy Award winning chart topping hit featuring a sample from Summer Madness by Kool & The Gang reached number 1 on the U.S. R&B chart and 4 on the Hot 100.

Prince ~ Gett Off ~ Paisley Park ~ 1991

Prince ~ Gett Off from the same time reached number 4 over here and 21 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song is made up from various bits and pieces Prince had been working on – Rosie Gains provided the female vocal and there’s a James Brown reference and sample … and it’s pure filth!

The Real Roxanne ~ (Bang Zoom) Let’s Go ~ Cooltempo ~ 1986

Adelaida Martinez a.k.a. The Real Roxanne (Bang Zoom) Let’s Go number 11 in the Summer of 1986 written with Full Force and Howie Tee who provides the male vocal and scratching!
