All-time classic killer NY City "avant-garde" down-tempo afro/alternative funk that was only played by DJ Raul Soto at Gotham West and then at Broadway 96 (after they moved there) and DJ Kenny Carpenter at Bonds. They got it because they went to Downtown Records on Worth St, the ONLY record store in NY City that got this record when it was released. Very limited production run. Downtown Records only got a few small batches of this record and then it disappeared. Vinyl Mania and other top record stores did not get this record. Tim Toum is one of the unforgettable records that started the "webo" craze - gas pants, suede "webo" boots, customized/cut-up T-shirts and sweatshirts, "webo" name buckle belts and Vietnamese-style straw hats, along with Witness The Change by Pete Shelley, The Natives Are Restless by Ray Martinez, Tarzan & Jane by The Meteors, Summing Up (instrumental) by Electric Mind, Come Let Me Love You (instrumental) by Jeanette Lady Day and much more... Dale Webo Y'all!
