Just seen the great american movie called The Buster, "rock'n'roll ******" movie on White House butler Eugene Allen (played by Oscar-winner. the great Forest Whitaker) with a great Lenny Kravitz on the part of another butler. The soundrack is very, very good, and now I listen something that was part of the movie:
People's Choice - We Got The Rhythm (1976)
It was them second record, after the great success of Boogie Down, the 45 coming out the year before. I prefer this record to the first one, even if I obviously bouth the first one after I heard and loved this second.
When I was a kid boy (well not that kid, I was 18) and used to live in Paris, I bought this record at Marchés aux puces de port de Guyancourt. Many kids like me and other rockers and funksters in Paris in those years, used to look for second hand records in that fantastic market, on saturday afternoons, full of vinyls. I bought this record and I learned all the rhythm guitar parts in the following months!!! For me Darnell Jordan is pretty much important like Keith Richards!
Great deal and maybe this is why this record in a bit cranky (I literally played it millions of times), then it still sound great to me even with all those click and pops. Very very good memories. I especially remember when in late afternoon every saturday, in the seventies and in the eighties, a bunch of arabian guys used to come in the market with bags full of american funky records ready to sell them to us waiting for them outside the normal circuit of the sellers in the market!!! We were waiting for those guys like junkies were waiting for pushers!
If some fellows parisian read this can maybe remember those wonderfull moments!
