B.T. Express was an important funk disco group that had a few hits in the 70's. Their biggest single was Do It (Till You're Satisfied) which hit #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1974. Their sound throughout the 70's threw a deep and groovy vibe. In 1980 they created an album that reflected a new era. They were on a quest to bring the world the future of boogie. That album was 1980 and it featured a jacket with the B.T Express spaceship on the front. The grooves are very polished and upbeat. The album is also loaded with tight production, synthesizers, and spacey electronic sounds. Their single from the album was Give Up The Funk (Let's Dance), but it doesn't really reflect the direction they were taking as much as the track Takin' Off. My apologies that this was ripped from a well loved copy of the album.
