THE ROCKETS - We Are All African People (1989)

Roy B/Dephon/Teal Trutone, RBL160   
Producers: Rick Wolff, Molly Barron, Al Etto (exec: Phil Hollis)   
Engineer: Peter Pearlson       
Recorded at: RPM Studios


By the late 80s the Rockets had moved on from conventional funk to a more electronic disco sound. Still featuring the likes of Al Etto, Colin 'Bones' Delight and Molly Baron, it's heavy on the cheese but packed full of solid uptempo grooves like 'Time To Foetsek'.
