In 1980 David Mcmurray and Adell Shavers and David McMurray (who went on to be a member of 80s hit band 'Was Not Was') wrote and produced this Amazing Detroit Modern / Boogie 45 which for some reason suffered the same fate of many of AOTN releases and disappeared from history.

It only got limited play but recently the record has had a resurgence in popularity and value which it deserves.
