Tony Fox: Love Let Love And Be Loved/I Wanna Get Next To You (Blaster)

A legendary LP on the funk and soul scene, issued in 1981. Apparently Tony Fox was a taxi driver in New York, who financed the record himself. Both sides we have selected appeared also on a ridiculously rare 45 to promote the album, with slighty different versions. "Love" is a frantic funky affair, with tremendous bass lines.
love let love and be loved
I wanna get next to you

Wow! Love let love and be loved: This is exactly my taste! Thanks for letting me hear the slightly different 7'' version of this fantastic modern soul monster tune.

I wanna get next to you = also fantastic!
