Fatback Band: People Music (Perception 43)

Tony Cummings, Black Music, December 1973

"GOOD EVENING ladies and gentlemen we would like to welcome you to a studio discotheque with the Fatback Band. We want you to sit back and relax your mind." That's the spoken intro... and that's ridiculous. How could anyone SIT while the band put you through such mean and dirty DANCE changes.
