From my understanding, Jody Watley, Howard Hewett, and Jeffrey Daniel should also be listed on this release.

Good classic disco release, including Right In The Socket, as heard on Larry Levan's "Live At The Paradise Garage" mix. Definitely worth checking if you're a fan of that late 70s disco sound.

Also, in my opinion, one of the most hilarious album covers of all time. It's a cheap 70s photoshop, and, for me, makes a good but somewhat plain release into something awesome.
