I came across this 12" recently in a deep stack of what seemed like mostly jazz records. It's by Rory and Rick Starr, also known by the moniker Magnum Force, under which they released some sought after funk and boogie LP's, in the late seventies through to the early eighties. This record though dates from 1984, and goes into my limited collection of what I would identify as one of the earliest examples that I own of pure Chicago house. I don't have anything that can be pinned down to that genre from 1983, close, but not quite. Both the A side and B side are well worthwhile, definitely a little too polished to have been made by a 17 year old with a Roland drum machine in his bedroom, but clearly influenced by them and the electronic sound being played on Chicago radio at the time as well.
I'm also posting Persia's Inch By Inch as was requested. All time roller boogie classic.
