AWESOME SONG

Why weren't these people the most popular in these 80's? I'd take these songs over prince, and others any day.

I liked their old 70s and early 80s songs. This is more of a Funk/R&B/Hip - h o p combination

This song brings back memories of cold nights in the South Dakota rain forest in 1992. We had loud speakers hung up in several trees blasting this song all night so that the enemy troops could not sleep before we cleared the camp the next morning. I will never forget the faces of those villagers as they fled.
