Vinyl? Check! 11: can you drive...STICK?

I closed my eyes and selected an album from my shelves for this Vinyl? Check! and picked out this album I got from Charlemagne Records (Southside Birmingham). My standout track is this funky number, the 1st track on the flip side, Put Me in Gear. Sounding like the lovechild of Kool & the Gang, Cameo, and The Mary Jane Girls, it's an uptempo number that helps me get my boogie on. Enjoy!

Crown Heights Affair - Put Me In Gear

The rest of the album is as funny as the back of the album: GROWN men with super thick mustaches, jheri curls, and more taco meat than Moes & Taco Bell combined all rolled up in gold outfits. Why? Because the album's name is Struck Gold of course!

More: Crown Heights Affair and Kool & The Gang were once label mates on De-Lite Rcords

ahahaha @ ChocLitLuvJoi. Umm yes old taco meat at that. Nice groove. makes recall those day when my sister and I shared a skate! She had the right foot and I had the left foot...wheee!

"I Struck Gold" is my fav off the album...the first 2 bars nice to loop! and "Rock Your World" just cause I love those echoing claps and the chords in the background...

Don't know how I over looked this post...I gotta catch up.
