Jimmy Bo Horne, Avenue B Boogie Band, and Crown Heights Affair, chosen by Steve

10 06 2011

Jimmy Bo Horne – Dance Across The Floor TK US/UK 1978. Time to shake yer booty and get down with the happy sound Florida’s TK Records. This track has recently been sampled for a track by Christina Aguilera entitled ‘Nasty’ featuring Cee Lo Green, so look out for some Jimmy Bo Horne interest, sometime soon, when nasty races up the charts. Biggest R&B hit US #8

and here’s Christina and Cee Lo’s new track

Avenue B Boogie Band – Bumper To Bumper Salsoul 1980. And now for a post Disco track that garnered a fair amount of interest from DJs and dancers, but ultimately not enough, as this would appear to be their only 12” single for Salsoul. It brought back memories of some older R&B tracks from some five years before.

Crown Heights Affair – Dance lady Dance DeLite Records 1979. From a band that really pushed all my DJ buttons, especially much of their earlier material, comes this US R&B hit that reached #20 in April of ’79. They were definitely one band that had myself and most other UK DJs keenly anticipating their new releases. #44 UK top 75
