Graham Central Station

An exuberant mid-'70s funk group, Graham Central Station made some fine singles for Warner Bros. Former Sly & the Family Stone bassist Larry Graham renamed Hot Chocolate (not the British group) Graham Central Station after he moved from producing the group to playing with it. The group included Graham, guitarist David Vega, keyboardists Robert Sam and Hershall Kennedy, percussionist Patrice Banks, and drummer Willie Sparks. They utilized the identical funk c*m rock and soul formula of Sly, though in not quite as imaginative a fashion. Their debut single, "Can You Handle It," reached number nine on the R&B charts, and they landed a number one record in 1975 with "Your Love." They recorded as Graham Central Station from 1974 to 1977, then as Larry Graham & Graham Central Station in 1978, and during their final year were called Larry Graham with Graham Central Station. ~ Ron Wynn, Rovi

GCS BAND was my inspiration to play music back in the 70's although I new the guitarist "David Dynamite" cuz we used to jam late hrs at his house in Oakland.The band I played in was called th glass house band "GHB"that's all we played GCS MUSIC
Got a chance to see GCS when this joint was out in Detroit. ..Larry's amp caught fire and started smoking. ..LITERALLY
Loved this band and Larry's female member Patrice Banks could blow her ads off! Sea them in concert in the 70's and she took the Mic and blew it out of the heater!
Did someone mention hearing this song for the first time? I heard this in the 70's. My boyfriend brought it over to my house. It blew me away.!
The Jam IS my jam!! Loved this to death, saw Larry Graham live back in the day. He was the bomb and his band was right up there with him. They killed this song!!
His nephew is the rapper Drake,great genes.
There is nothing like The Jam! Newbies, you need to listen up!
so_bo
I love THE JAM! Tight song! I saw Larry perform with Prince and he did the damn thing!
Met the band at a concert years ago, saw him last summer (2012), got re-acquainte d , they sounded like yesterday he banged it out on that big a** bass.THEY DID THEIR THANG YEAH, YEAH!!!
This is the real deal funk!
Listen up all you bass players cause this song will blow your mind! The first time I heard this song I had to put it on 3 more times just to make sure I wasn't dreaming. Figured out most of the bass part but without a boat load of effects it's hard to sound like mr graham.
This is classic funk.100/RTa t e / A l i k h a n

What a musical inspiration back in the day!
By far one of the baddest funkiest bands. I could say so much more, but that about sums it up! Plus, Larry is STILL doin his THANG!
Larry the way he played the base got me into the funk seen there was nothing like it!
I don't care what they became, you don't change the lyircs of your songs in a concert because you suddenly don't like naughty words anymore. Maybe you shouldn't be in concert anymore. How do you do that to 20,000 fans who love your music. It sounded like a bad overdub of Diehard.
What can I say, dynamite group, besides,Choc ' l e t is my baby sister.
lynnpetty
Stomped beat up and whupped and release yourself the jams
