Move For Me Baby  

 I closed out with this one at the epic BeatElectric Dance Show and someone asked me to ID the tune from some video footage of the night online, so I thought I may as well post it up. I didn't choose a picture of a baby listening to music because the song is titles Move For Me Baby, thats just an unfortunate coincidence, no doubt helping speed along Google's internal proceedings to have us shut down. I wish I could even claim to be the copyright holder of the image, and that this was infact a picture of me at age 3 listening to a young parent's funk collection through a tube driven pair of sick looking cans, but as any of you who have actually met me would immediately notice this obviously isn't me, as I would never emphasize a little pot belly by wearing horizontal stripes.

 Output was the vehicle producer David Reeves, aka later to become early hip hop pioneer Davy DMX, would use for the vocals of the talented Jerome Prister, who had just had a moderate hit on Prelude under the Secret Weapon moniker with the excellent 'Must Be The Music' (which for some reason I cannot find my copy of right now, otherwise I would post that too, if we haven't already). Output had another club hit later in the eighties with the catchy 'Say You'll Be', and I think Eddie Ski White's band may be the same band as Output just with Eddie on vocals, I'm not sure, but he appeared onstage with them on a bootleg live recording I heard.

downloads removed by request of Tuff City, who still sell some Output releases on their webiste.

    I really haven't heard this since '82-83! I wouldn't have even recognized it except for when the chorus. The instrumental was the jam.
    Thanks for posting it!
