You mean Bar Kays Bob. Bar Kays were a hot funk group during the late 70's-early 80's era. :)

Thank you for posting this! Freestyle was good and not really recognized by many! Great Miami-Latin-New York sounds! My faves were India, Expose, Cover Girls, Sweet Sensation, Pajama Party, and much more.

Hey!! It's great to see this thread back up here. :D This style of music is one of the things that made the 1980's so awesome and original.

Does anyone else have any good tunes to add to the ones listed? Does anyone else like dance music? Discotheques/Clubs, as they were, will always exist in my memory as one of the best places to hang-out on a weekend, besides the arcades and bowling alleys. ;) 8)
