This forgotten dance-floor classic was the American funk band C.J. & Company's debut album, released in 1977. C.J. & Company were a Detroit, Michigan partnership of producers, funk-brother, Dennis Coffey and Mike Theodore. The title track will best be remembered as the very first record played at the opening of Studio 54 by DJ Richie Kaczor. That song, along with "We Got Our Own Thing" (later sampled by Heavy D and the Boys) and "Sure Can't Go to the Moon" hit #1 for five weeks on the US hot dance music/club play chart. We believe this copy, because of it's exceptionally clean condition, hasn't seen the DJ's circuit during it's lifetime, and the crystal clear vibes can only enforce that suggestion. What is just as pleasing, is that 39 years after it's release, there is now a new generation of funkateer's picking up this record for the first time.
