Just seen that there are four unreleased tracks from 991 Volts floating around on the internet. Each is quality, and as a whole they just might feature my favorite production I've heard coming from a 991 Volts release, no joke. It's a toss up between these and Champion of Love.
Check the line on No Gasface - "you may think this jam is just a bummer / just because we didn't use funky drummer / it's a shame it got played to death / over and over and nothing's left."
Bright Ideas definitely has a Greg Nice vibe going.
From Doing What We Gotta Do - "every single day of my life I catch flack .. but I won't forget where I'm from, some... do / one day, you'll get the cold shoulder too / 'cause you gotta pursue something brand new and you / can't do that with people holding you back ... / you must cut the slack" doing what we gotta do
You may know this group for having two of the more exceptional tracks from the entire B-Boy Records discography, 991 Volts of Noise and Time Will Tell. Later, they released a killer single on Mercury in 1989, Champion of Love. I never had the 12", but I always loved Champion of Love ... I had it on a tape from DJ Daze called Back in the Daze (anybody ever heard of this mix... it was on cassette).
Here's the Champion of Love video -
"I seen a couple of blazin' honeys just standing at the bus stop / had to send the vibe so I said 'yo baby, what's up!' / then one replied, 'I'm not your baby sugar' / I said I'm not your sugar you fucking stankin' booger!"
This rip of the video is a bit lower quality, but you can hear Ralph McDaniels at the beginning introducing it, calling them 9,1,1 Volts -
