Throw Back Sunday’s 0051

Today’s classic comes from the BB&Q Band (which stands for the Brooklyn, Bronx, and Queens Band). The B. B. & Q. Band was a studio concept created in 1981 by the businessman, Jacques Fred Petrus. After the success with Change in 1980, and also with Macho and the Peter Jacques band in the late 1970s Petrus and his close co-worker, Italian Mauro Malavasi decided to launch a new project, named after the three boroughs in New York that the band “members” came from. Fred Petrus pulled several musicians together of which New York session bassist Paris Ford (credited as Peewee Ford) and his musicians became the band. What a wonderful group with so many hit’s under their belt we went with this pop crossover. Please go and buy more music from this super group.
