We will never see thier like again. Pure class and pure quality. Top tracks for me are somebody to love (just love the instrumental after 5:50 and that bass line), 212 North 12th, how high, sun after the rain (vocal and instrumental versions), street sense and how high.

I would not try to buy you all something here.. or say this group has invented something or was the roots of some disco flavour electronic & house music today...but.. still... everytime I hear songs like "212 North 12th" think... they were in some ways.. in sound... ahead of their time somehow...

(remind me too some stuff like "Munich Machine" among others, of course)
