THE GAP BAND 'Outstanding' (Polygram) Yet another soul concerto from The Gap Band with a monstrously hard-hitting handclap from the engine room and a vocal that homes in around 'Summer Breeze' period Isley Bros. This may be the second single from the album but it's still the freshest thing in town. For the last year and a half, The Gap Band have been consistently dumping on everybody in the soulfunk stakes. If they could just put a face in the gap, they might be recognised for the fact. Plug that gap!
