TNT Unlimited  

As far as my limited research suggests NYC label TNT Unlimited (Brooktown Records) was responsible for only three 12" releases in its very short run. I own two of them. The third release by a group called Fire and Ice is the rarest of the lot but the least essential in my opinion. Alternately, "You Can't Have It" by Stargaze (featuring a mix by Tony Humphries) and "Get Your Body Up" by Serena are pretty heavy tunes from the peak 1982-83 boogie era. TNT folded in '83 shortly after the Serena 12" dropped, leaving several collectible and sought after releases in its wake.

    The Fire and Ice 12" is the fattest in my opinion, hypnotic and incredibly funky. Like a Chic record. I have it but too bad you won't share it here... Many would love it, I think. Great site btw. Koen
