    Jump Into Fire and Let’s Take Time Out. Respect to The System, Sass, and all the other individuals involved with or close to the project

      Don't sleep on this. I've found a few copies while digging over the years. Howard and The System are all Background giants of funk. They never got the recognition they deserved despite how funky they all are. Some good cuts on this record.

          A stunning slice of '80s soul-electro-boogie. Produced by David Frank and Mic Murphy of The System fame, the first album, Doin It My Way, features Howard's then state-of-the-art, sexy, stunning remake of "Much Too Much," originally recorded by obscure soul-boogie Sass, an NYC-based session group that pre-dated the System by a few months, featuring Mic on vocals, David producing, and even LaLa on keyboards. This rare, sadly out of print reissue reissue is truly a great deal, since it also includes his later album, The Vision, produced by Niteflyte, aka Jam & Lewis in their early peak. All around, a great example of rich, lush, club-friendly 80s soul from an underrated singer.
