635-T-Connection-At Midnight.
1979-Number 53 single
Best Bit-At .3.07.Well for the drummer and bongo player at least,a welcome rest.
T-Connection were a Funk and Disco group from Nassau,the Bahamas who achieved two UK top 20 singles with ‘Do What You Wanna Do’ and ‘On Fire,’both in 1977.
The 12inch vinyl for ‘At Midnight’ was ‘DJ friendly’ as there were etchings on the record to let you know where to place the needle.For instance if you wanted to skip the Drum intro this was clearly marked.These were the days before mixing,but the seeds were being sown.
‘Look into my eyes tell me what you see do you see some possibilities.’
