Crown Heights Affair
had a string of hits beginning with the number five R&B/Top 40 hit "Dreaming a Dream" in the summer of 1975 and also including the Top 20 R&B hits "Every Beat of My Heart,""Foxy Lady," -- not the Jimi Hendrix
classic -- and "Dancin." Though the title track of their 1980 LP Sure Shot
managed to chart number 72 in the summer of 1980, it was an album track that garnered the most attention. The radio-aired smooth dance cut "Use Your Body and Soul" embodies both the band's upbeat sound, elements of Chic
, and a get-up-and-dance rap break/interlude.
