Here is the story of Brick:

Brick (1977)
I guess you'd have to call this Atlanta five-piece a third-rate funk band, but they're fun. Rather than relying on synth, strings or unchanging disco rhythms, they focused on small-combo arrangements that often sound unrehearsed, funk and ballads alike - like a nicer Ohio Players, or like Earth Wind & Fire without the production touches. They're set apart by prominent flute work by Jimmy Brown (who also played sax); the rest of the band is Regi Hargis (guitar), Ray Ransom (bass), Eddie Irons (keyboards) and Donald Nevins (drums), with everyone contributing lead vocals. Their 1976 debut (Good High) had produced the hit "Dazz," so they continued the lyrical theme with "Dusic" - their second and last Top Forty hit, with a great group falsetto vocal. ("Ain't Gonna Hurt Nobody" was also successful on the R&B chart.) Produced by Phil Benton with the band.Brick kept releasing LPs through 1982, with "Sweat (Till You're Wet)" hitting the R&B charts in 1981. (DBW)
