Junior Gee - Caveman Rock

I probably mentioned elsewhere on this blog to not really knowing about the existence of rap music until 1983 when this record was released and even then it was just the b-boying thing; the undying interest in the music didn't come until the year after. I bought this only last year for a fiver and it's fine example of the influences US hip hop music was having on us lot on this side of 'the pond'. It's a long 'un too clocking in at just under 11 minutes for the vocal track which is really just vocal and instrumental tracks joined together to make one long disco party cut with a proper instrumental on the flip credited to the Funk Masters whoever they are. I remember seeing him performing live on the Electro Rock video and as far as I'm aware the only other record JG went on to record was 'The Terminator' in 1987 which is alright. I've got a copy. And a copy of the remix too.
